Around a Rug

A few weeks back, I worked my magic in this basement family room and kitchen space.  Here are the before pictures.

Here are the after pics.  In the kitchen, I changed all the cabinet hardware, painted the whole room a light gray, added the pot rack, the tray, and new accessories.

I used white plates with accents of red in the glass faced cabinets.

I used placemats from Target to create the window curtains.  Then I added the three jars filled with the perfect snacks to compliment the color scheme.

I used ready made silk drapes to dress both the window and the French doors.  I found this great red Bombay chest at Down East and accessorized the top.

Changed out the lights with this great simple chandelier.  I loved the table and chairs.  It can be used for eating or a great place to play games.  I spray painted the chargers to get the perfect metallic finish.  The plates were all plastic ones from Target.  Indestructible for spaces with kids.  The chairs were great finds from Down East and the table was a steal from Down to Earth.

Loved the collection of pillows from World Market.  I only had five days from start to finish on this room, so ready-mades were a must.  I LOVE how it turned out.

To break up the wall of bookcases, I accessorized by adding clocks, globes, and bookends throughout the long run.  By simply adding a few decorative pieces, it transformed the bookcase.

I love how the wall came together.  In all of the frames, I added pictures of a Southern Utah.  It is a favorite place for my clients.

My favorite find for this grouping is the lamp.  I found it at Ikea for $40.  It is such a great piece.

The inspiration for this room was this Navajo rug my client got from his mission.  I turned it into a piece of art by adding the open frame.

This console table was another steal from World Market.  I love how it all came together!

Master Redo

This was my 30th Birthday present...

 Our room had lots of brown in it before...felt boring to me. Decided to go much lighter...and I'm loving how it turned out!  We repainted the walls in Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore.  It was a Pinterest tip and I'm glad I found it because it's a great light grey.  Lots of greys tend to pull blue or purple tones and this one is a true grey.  Love it!  The bedding is from the one and only Target!  Can't beat $90 for a comforter and two shams!

Big frame with fabric is from IKEA, $30.  Lisa sewed six of the seven pillows and I love how the sizes and different patterns work together.  The textured pillow was also from Target.  All the fabrics were $8 or less a yard from 

Can't beat the LACK shelf from IKEA for $15!  Thanks Lisa for help installing!  This is the more feminine side of the room (aka my side of the bed!)  Accessories from Rod Works and Taipan. 

This cute nightstand was $45 at Forget Me Not!  Sad to say their storefront has closed but they are moving to online sales!  Watch for more info about their site soon!  This lamp is only $20 from IKEA and has a great basket-woven texture on the shade.

This is the more masculine side (McKay's half).  Layered the IKEA frames and letters from Hobby Lobby.  Everything here (including the shelf) was $45!  Can't beat that!

Wrong time of day to take a window picture, but the curtains are beautiful!  Lisa did a great job!  This is a great Waverly fabric from Joann's.  I did the layered curtains and the sheer panel is only $10 for both at IKEA.

And I have hated looking at TV wires for the past few years so I finally did something about it!  Thanks Jess for the owl!  Vase from IKEA, $15 and cream accessory from Hobby Lobby, $15.

This is a gift that will keep on giving and I will never forget!  Thanks to all who helped contribute to it!
