This is roughly what my living room looked like yesterday:
Flowers and books on the coffee table.
DIY flying birds with nests on the bookcase.
Faux mantel with paint-by-numbers and glass jar of shells.
On hand, I also had some scrabble letters, votive candles on a window sill, and this tray I painted last summer.
A little switching around got me this new summer look:
The books and flowers moved to the bookcase.
I felt like they needed something to ground them, so I borrowed the candles from the window sill.
For the coffee table, out came the blue tray.
If you have pets, small children, or a husband, I suggest covering the book with pretty paper and using double sided tape to stick the letters to the covered book.
Since I borrowed so much from the mantle, it needed a little filling out.
I grabbed the “S” that will one day hang on the gallery wall I’m planning for the stairs.
I think it fits in just fine with the nautical paint-by-numbers.
Voilà! New living room look – zero dollars spent!
