Usually all my posts are about food or food related subjects but today I need some advice from some of you that are really good at decorating. I have a decorating dilemma!!!!!!
This was my front room (as we say here in Utah) I can't call it formal by any means but it is the front living room (as apposed to the family room which is one level down). The room you see when you ring my doorbell and I answer it...LOL
(ALL PHOTOS WILL ENLARGE WHEN CLICKED ON!)
I need curtains because those big blank white squares of mini blinds are killing me!!! But I just have not found any premade that I like and I don't sew....I know...I know...what kind of woman am I. I cook...really well in fact...but I don't sew and I no longer feel any shame in it...LOL
So...getting back to my stark white mini blinds....I wanted to do something to add a little color but not spend a lot of money. This is what I came up with (for the time being) ...I still want curtains or drapes or something pretty on the windows!
I added two of my extra dinning room chairs.....(free)
I bought two pillows for the sofa to add a little color. ($ 6.00 each at Target)
My BFF Tammy found these for me at my favorite store in the whole world "Hobby Lobby" I put one one on either side of the window, for a little more color. They were 1/2 off!!
I love my bird cage from "Home Goods"
So....the question is....does it look a little better and what more would you suggest I do (other than some color on the windows). I'm open here ladies...give me some suggestions!!
