This year I really wanted to replace our living room furniture. We currently have a worn (but still pretty comfy) hand-me-down leather sectional, a matching recliner and a very old love seat that Paul brought from his bachelor days. It has a slip cover that is really showing wear (thanks mostly to Thelma Lou). Several months ago I looked around my living room and decided I really hated how everything looked. I think that happens to all of us at some point, am I right?
New furniture isn’t in the cards right now, so I decided to refresh my living room as best I could! I made a list of a few things I wanted and began shopping for good deals. Finding exactly what I want at the price I want is very important to me, so I’m never in a hurry with these things. I spent less than $150 and couldn’t be happier with the difference it makes in the room! We purchased the rug back in December, but I’ll include it in the list below because it really contributes to the new look. Here’s what I purchased:
- Blue Lamp: $25, Target Clearance
- Throw Pillows: $25 for the pair, Marshalls
- Love Sign: $11, Kirklands
- Rug: $79, Target
- Piano Runner: Christmas Gift
- Total: $140!
I hope this encourages you that even if you are unhappy with the large pieces of furniture in a room, you can make little changes to improve the overall look of the room. And now – the before and after photos!
I am so thankful for our home and for the opportunity I had to give it a little refresh! Do you have a room that needs some new accessories?
