Time for a Redo, a Living Room Redo that is!

Pin It

How do you start a project? Are you a planner and a researcher or do you just dive in and go with the flow?

I am a brainstormer. I start compiling ideas in my head not because I am planning to redo a room or anything but because I am always doing that. But then, one day I will decide it's time. Time to repaint, time to repurpose, just time.

This gorgeous rug I found on the Pier 1 website
and it is on it's way to my house! So excited!

This time it was my living room. I decided to neutralize it a bit and paint the walls grey and had a plan to sell and replace my burgundy leather furniture set for something neutral. But in the process, I went a totally different direction! Do you ever do that?

These curtains I also found via Pier1 and am ordering today.

Yeah. I do that all the time. Sometimes my decisions are driven from my circumstances, in fact they often are. In this case, I wasn't getting any real solid offers on the furniture and I couldn't afford to give it away. Soooo, I decided to roll with it! This. changed. my. entire. direction.

Behind the 8 Ball

Pin It

Yeah, I am a bit behind the 8 ball these days. Chalk it up to a new full time job and, oh yeah, the fact that I fell and broke my ankle! But I did get all my fall decorating done before that happened including repainting my front room. (How does that always happen?)

Orignal shelf 'as is'

My painting is done and I can't wait to share about this process and endorse a f.a.b.u.l.o.u.s. brand of paint I just found! But that's for another post.

Shelf, repainted and repurposed to the bathroom.
Tonight, in this post, I am sharing a simple shelf redo that I completed a few months back. This shelf was made for me by my niece many years ago and has been housed in my sons room. He has recently repainted that room (I wonder where they get that gene from?) and did not want the shelf. My first instinct was to give it away cause it was a bit too country for me. But I decided to spruce it up and use it in another room.

So glad I did!
