Some Living Room Shots

If you remember my free couch I posted about a while ago, then you'll remember this couch....

Here it is before:

My inspiration I came across on Pinterest {after I got the couch}:

And now!:

{BTW: that mirror behind the couch is gonna be my next victim! I'll be back in the next day or two with my dining room mirror...that ginormous one? Whoop!! It looks sooooo much better!! :) }

I decided to tackle this job on Saturday afternoon while my girlies were taking a nap. It took about one and a half hours from start to finish, and it was done all free hand! I attempted to tape off the material so I wouldn't get paint on it...well after several times of it falling off {wasn't sticky enough} and the right paint brush method, I just free handed it!!

I love it! I guess I'm just a funky soul, but it's so cozy, and I've been staring/sitting/gazing at it just loving the way it turned out!! It will do until I have either the dough, or the knowledge, to recover it!!

Here is some more shots of that area.

To the left of this last picture, I am working on something to fill in the space between the loveseat and the wall, plus something to tie in these two seating areas. I have an idea, just need to get out my sewing machine!!

{I am also so excited that I found my camera!! It's a lot better to take pictures with, even though I'm not a photographer!....Someday, though, I want to learn how to use my camera, and learn how to take pictures!! Ahhhhh so many things to tweak, design, sew, capture on film......now if I can figure out how to do all that along with my many other things!!}

Time to go to bed, lots to do tomorrow! I do plan to post about my dining room mirror!!
