Today the creative ladies over at kariandkijsa.blogspot.com are having a Show Me Your Favorite Spot party, so I'm joining in! I have a lot of favorite areas in my house but because it's a small house and you have to walk through the living room to get anywhere else, I've put a lot of thought into the decor.
The entertainment center we've had since the 90's. It used to be kind of an oak color and I gave it a shabby chic makeover. My husband would like a big flat screen there but I've been able to hold him off for a little longer.
The bench along the wall I made from three wicker cubes found at BigLots. I built a base for them, added some bun feet to the bottom and sewed a cushion for the top. It now holds the kids dvd's and wii game controllers.Because the room is narrow and we needed extra seating, this worked out perfectly, a couch would have taken up too much room.
The end table next to the couch is an old trunk I've had forever and I had a peice of glass cut to fit the top so we have a nice smooth surface for the lamp, candle or bowl of cereal:)
I guess you could say my style is coastal cottage with a touch of glam(I love all chandeliers!)
My favorite item in here is the pictureof my Mom and me when I was a baby, isn't she beautiful?Well enough about me, go over and check out their site. Plenty of beautiful pictures for inspiration. Have a great day!
