Do you see the latest addition to my house? We were the lucky recipients of my daughter and son-in-law's family room furniture. They're redecorating. Which means that we're redecorating too! I have loved this sectional since I went with them to pick it up at IKEA.
This mirror was a country blue and I painted it jadeite green today. On Christmas Eve, I took pictures of my family as they arrived. Instead of framing the pictures, I taped them to the mirror. I also added a copy of a vintage New Year's Eve card and I plan on adding vintage valentines in a week or two.
I have my big blue cabinet and soon I'll be painting my dining room table and chairs. In addition to the jadeite green, I picked up some cream, pink and red paint. I'm not sure where each color is going but I'm having fun figuring it out! I'll be starting out the new year with a paint brush in my hand! I also want to add some quilted pillows to the sectional. I've got all kinds of plans. I've been spending hours looking at the pictures in this Flickr group-Happy's Homestyle Decoration. I think that Happy Harris should write a book. I know I would buy it!
Have a Happy New Year. We're planning on spending it on the sectional with games, snacks and people we love.
