Do you want to transition your living room from Winter to Spring in a jiffy? Well, this is how I did it, Ya’ll!
Before my spiffy little transformation my whole living room was dark, dark brown leather sofas, dark rug, dark lampshades and dark accessories.
After a couple of days of online searches, shopping and re-doing, I have managed to transform my entire living room into a comfy, bright and beautiful shabby chic room which I just am in LOVE with!
My secret weapon, slip covers! If you can sew, you can make your own, if your like me and just wish you could sew, you go buy some covers at Bed, Bath and Beyond.
These covers didn’t have the romantic shabby chic little ruffles on them, so I bought some bed skirts and tucked them under the cushions of the furniture to give me the look I wanted.
What I love about this shabby look is that anything goes! If your budget doesn’t allow for slip covers right now, you can just get yourself some white sheets and do a quick throw and tuck on your existing furniture and change out some pillows.
Got all the pillows at Bed Bath and Beyond as well, Damask Europeons, Damask White Bolsters, off white flowery pillows. These pillows were a little expensive, but they feel like butter and I wanted to splurge on them to make the room feel comfy.
Here are a few other changes I made:
I changed out my existing lamp shade with this beautiful Target shade and added a shabby chic crystal vase with some roses.
This is my favorite part of the makeover, my linen Cafer Club Chair. I found this chair at Marshalls and originally wanted two of them, but they only had one in the store. I came home and looked online and the online price was double the price of the Marshall’s chair, so try to grab this at your local Marshalls if ya can.
I paired down the amount of accessories that I had on my bookshelves and replaced a few of them with some shabby chic items.
And you know the Stylish Piggy’s gotta have a pig around, check out this flying pig I scored at TJ Max.
I still can’t believe that this is the same dark living room as before. It is shocking how color effects your mood. Now I walk in this room every morning and I just feel light, bright and happy!
