This is obviously from the front door. The paintings of the women are my work, the posters on the orange wall are my brothers at mojohand.com
Another poster of my brothers. The wooden lamp came from Target- clearance for 12.48. The 6 items on the wall are some of my finished art dolls, and the large grey piece is Ikea fabric stretched over a frame. The green buffet is an old Bassett dresser that I repainted and put new hardware (also Ikea) on. The cow was a gift from my Mr.
This is the view when you come into the house.
The orange piece is Ikea fabric (2 yds at 7.98 each) over a scrap wood frame we built. The desk in the corner is very, very old. It's actually 2 very old pieces that were married to each other that cost my Mr. 10 bucks at at a thrift store. The table I got for 40 bucks from an antique dealer- it's not old- it's from Pier 1 originally- but he got it when he bought out a womans house and sold it it me- the orange Herman Miller chairs were 4 for 50 bucks, the cream colored Herman Miller stacking fiberglass chairs were 20 bucks for 3, and the black fiberglass chair of unknown maker was 2 bucks at a garage sale- it rocks back and forth and it's super cool. Right now, we use as the naughty chair.
The Bamboo blinds were on clearance at Lowes for 6.57 each (down from 30+ each) and the curtains are Rodeo curtains that were on final yellow tag clearance at Marshalls for 2 bucks. Oh, the large white shade is from West Elm. It was 5 bucks on final, super duper, gotta get this gone, markdown.
This is the view into the living room. You can see the white bar table my Mr. built to extend the kitchen.
The work I still need to do in the room is to repaint all the trim white. And maybe look for a new rug under the table, although, since my dog is very old, and very bad, I may wait for a while so he doesn't ruin a new rug.
