before & after: basket and living room face lift…

April 12, 2010

Happy Mon­day everyone.…

living room white sheers

Over the week­end, our  liv­ing room received a QUICK  face lift for spring. I threw on some nat­ural couch cov­ers (wrinkly and messy, but who cares? it is sum­mer!) and white sheers on the win­dows. This paint­ing was done by my Grand­mother– so beau­ti­ful. I am try­ing to find a frame so I can hang it in the room…

living room for spring

This bas­ket is where we put all our games, but the black was not cut­ting it.

BEFORE:

basket- before

AFTER:living room face lift

I will prob­a­bly keep it as an “end table” but.….who knows?

basket- slate blue

I chose “slate blue”- MUCH lighter and very pretty for spring…

basket- after

I love sheers in the sum­mer to let all that nat­ural light in…

cheers!

    i love all your post­ings! so pretty. wanna start an inte­rior design busi­ness with me? hope you’re well!

    That is a stun­ning box from Ger­many in the pic­ture. It bears a remark­able resem­blance to one my Nin Nin kept in her par­lor. I would pay a great deal for one such as that so that I might keep it in my office at The Cen­ter for Peo­ple Who Need Their Legs or Arms Fixed. I’m sure my fel­low leg and arm doc­tors would be quite impressed. Would you part with it if I gave you a large sum of money? Or is it a fam­ily heirloom?

    • Thank you Dr. Sophis­ti­cus Von Rain­seed (aka Jonathan Tor­rence). Actu­ally, it is a fam­ily heir­loom, but it really means absolutely NOTHING to me. It wasn’t even MY nana’s, it was my husband’s.…but the rea­son I stole it was because I knew how much it meant to my brother-in-law and I really did NOT want him to have it. This may sound mean, but he is CONSTANTLY try­ing to take the most valu­able heir­looms from our fam­ily. I had to do some­thing. BUT, let me just say, EVERYTHING is for sale for the right price.

    what type of paint did you use for the basket?

    • fiveoeight

      It was just Satin spray paint…not sure the brand, it was a while ago!
