Well, here are some photos of what I have been up to. My awesome friends Carolyn and Albert got me a great chair from craigslist that I was in love with. Here it is below - I am working on re covering it but I haven't had the chance yet. This is also a before picture of our lamp. I recovered the shade with red silk for Christmas.
I have also been covering cheap picture frames with fabrics I got on sale when Joanne's moved.
I put this picure in just because I like this part of my room. I am going for an islandy feel :) Those are shells on the dresser if you can't tell - big shocker I know! We still need to sand and paint our baseboards in here but we are pretty much done with major repairs in our place.
