Yes, that would be a gigantic wedding picture circa 1999.
And a pair of mismatched lamp shades:
Just this morning, I decided to see what small changes I could make using things I have around the house. Coral and gray is a new favorite color palette, so I wanted to incorporate those colors.
I replaced the wedding picture with this sunburst mirror I purchased at Home Depot several weeks ago. If you're looking for a mirror this one was a bargain at $35.
The lamps got some new lampshades. I got these at Target on clearance plus it was buy one, get one 50%.
The lamps needed something else, so I decided to paint them. When painting lamps, I protect the top by tightly wrapping it in tinfoil.
I wrap the cord in tape and then place the remainder of the cord in plastic grocery bags.
I flipped the quilt to the white side, put on some different shams, and moved pillows from the living room to the bed.
It's not perfect, but it's a start. It's also fun to try to reuse things I already have...OR have gotten for free! I got a quart of free paint at Ace Hardware. They are giving away free quarts every Saturday in March. This is the color I'll be painting my room.
Update: I stopped at the thrift store this evening and found a pair of lamps that I'm going to replace my little stick lamps with. Don't worry, I'm still going to spray paint them coral. I'll post pics when I'm done.
