A Small Touch of Red
Hi, everyone! Thank you for all the well-wishes regarding my mom!
Last time I showed you my armoire transformation here.
I've been tweaking the rest of our living room for spring. (Although it's still cold here and actually snowed on the first day of spring!)
The next area I'm going to show you has been touched by small doses of red.
I still have the chippy door behind my couch and the canvas bag filled with cotton, but I switched up the top of the drawer unit between the couch and loveseat.
It includes my favorite Madonna (a gift from my mom) and a wooden 'dough bowl' full of sweet-smelling lavender sachets, the burlap ones made by my friend Carol. (I found the red monogrammed sachet at an out-of-town antique shop.)
She also stenciled the pretty lampshade in a grain sack style, which I love! I just added it to an old lamp base that I found at a resale shop.
The shade echos the vintage red-striped linens on the ladder...
...and also the pair of authentic grain sacks on the shelving unit.
Carol also stenciled the fun number 3 pillow for me, and the wonderful pillows on the couch.
(Needless to say, her work can be seen all over my home! Gotta love talented friends! :)
I think small touches of red contribute nicely to a classic 'country/farmhouse' look, don't you?
I'll show you some more of my new living room vignettes next time!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fantastic day!
