I have been enjoying everyone's pictures of their pads and I figured I post a few of my own.  I purchased my house in Columbus,OH in Janurary of 05, and I already had of fun peices none of them really seemed to fit with the new layout.  Pretty much everything is thrift except rug and TV and cds..ok theres alot not thrifted but the fun stuff is.  

This is the before picture of my living its pretty much a blank slate..

 

This is the view upon entering my home..







I looked all over for a coffee table before I snagged this one at the thrift store for 10 bucks.  There are 25 watt bulbs in each of the cylinders and it actually works.

I have had alot of fun working on my place limited budget and all,it progressing nicely I hope to post pictures of my craft room soon.  Thanks for looking

Wow!  What a transformation!  Your room looks great!  I love the big round chair!  It looks really comfy.

I am SOOO jealous of your giant pink couch!!
Also, do you remember what orange you used on your walls?  I want to paint my kitchen orange, and am looking for just the right shade.

I love your living room! When my husband and I have a bigger place I would love to decorate by checking out thrift stores--those are great finds!  Smiley

Thanks I was happy when I found my couch, I'd been looking for ages.  The paint is really more amber/burnt orange in person but its Behr 'Amber Wave'
