I loved the bright greens in the Ikea Summer Catalogue, but since Ikea is a 9 hour round trip for me, I decided to shuffle some things around in my house instead. I dug up some of my crocuses to bring indoors and bought a pot of orange freesia for $8. I had some light blue cushions stashed away (they are a little worn). I bought a blue egg-shaped dish from Winners for $3 and from Superstore I picked up a blue glass candle holder & candle and a round basket for $20 total. I already had the Undecorate book - LOVE! and I bought a 3'x3' canvas for $36 to use with the paint set that I had bought for $8. So total tally for this new look is $75 plus taxes.
Here goes the room tour:
|Before - so sad...|
|Phase II - A little cheered up|
|Phase III - new art & more blue accents|
Much happier feeling. I love my new painting and the little blue touches here and there. I would love to get rid of the carpet, but my poor dog can't get her footing without it!
|My Masterpiece :)|
I'm very happy with the result and even happier that it cost so little and I could re-use some things from around the house.
