With the mindset of "we're moving soon", progress to decorate (with more than just a few pictures here and there) or buy new furniture was delayed until just recently. I'm tired of the white walls! And ready for some sprucing. Artwork to come in a later post because this one is all about the sewing creations I've made in the past few weeks.
First up, pillows:
Nothing fancy about these guys, but the extra color alone really helps the living room. I bought cheap-o pillows at Ross and covered them with material from fabric.com. Without purpose, our entire apartment developed an "earthy" look. The plan for the living room is warm tones, so yellows/reds/oranges/browns. (An orange pillow is hiding on the other side of the sofa)
Second, a table runner:
This TV was a hand-me-down post college that we've continue to use. Downside? It's HUGE and brings plenty of scratch possibilities to the new furniture. What once was an ugly brown sheet is now replaced with the yellow-floral-explosion-table runner. It's a wonderful upgrade! And we can remove it the moment a flat screen graces us with it's presence. The material is from Hobby Lobby and I used interfacing to make it a little more stiff and sturdy.
Side note: Friends almost always accompanies me while I sew. My DVR queue is full of old episodes.
Cheers to making progress on the apartment!
