I have been busy giving a fresh coat to the living room.
First, I removed all my craft supplies from there. It still wasn't looking very good. There was too much of a mix of furniture collected other the years but with nothing tying them together. I didn't want to spend much money so buying new furniture and accessories was out. I decided I should use what I already had. Since I had light and dark wood, I opted for a mahogany color and since I already had made covers for some sitting a couple years ago I want with turquoise.
I darkened the pine shelves with mahogany stain. While I was at it, I also put a new coat and the dark furniture so it would hide all the tiny dings and dents they acquired other the years. They look new now. I painted the sofa, the day bed and the armchairs turquoise and made new covers for the pillows. I also painted the low table and the lamps' shafts.
I used an old kid table with peeling off yellow paint to make a new TV stand as the old TV stopped working and we bought a way too big new one(It didn't seem that big in the store!). So I sanded it, painted it, cut and added a shelf for the DVD player and game consoles.
I lightly sanded the rattan chairs and gave them a mahogany stain too. Then, I made new covers for the chair cushions.
While I was sewing the cushion covers, I saw my ordinary old black office chair. I imagined it repainted and with bright patchwork fabric. It took me longer than I thought but here it is.
