The goal for this living area was to turn a room that was never used into a useable and comfortable space perfect for entertaining or just relaxing on the weekends. It was also important to the client to incorporate sentimental pieces like the clock, family photos, globe, and painting from Italy into the design.
Instead of buying new tables, I suggested the client paint the side tables and sofa table and add pretty new knobs.
Not to brag, but I am pretty proud of my pillow making skills!
You can find vintage books just like this at boutiques, but before you spend a lot for this look buy books from the thrift store and just rip the covers off.
If you missed the dining room before and after pictures I posted earlier this week be sure to check it out!
