I bought a new picture (see old picture here) for over the bookcase in my living room....I really wanted to add more color to this space. I also picked up some flowers at Michael's. Summer flowers are on clearance now...for 70% off. I paid under $4.00 for all the flowers I bought. A new picture and flowers led to a bit of re-arranging....here's a peek at some of the newly arranged "flat surfaces" in my living room.
I'm going to paint the unfinished part of the birdhouse ($1.00 on clearance at Michael's!) using aqua paint...just a light wash.
This piece of furniture will be getting a paint job soon...probably that green color on the spine of the book to the far right. Those are old Reader's Digests that I've been buying at the thrift store lately...I love the colorful binding. The book covers are wonderful prints...I'll have to show them off sometime. The little pot of flowers is also from the clearance aisle at Michael's.
It's amazing what 50 cents worth of flowers can do..especially when you you get double the pleasure because they're sitting in front of a mirror.
My living room is turning into such a happy place!
