i t   s t a r t e d   w i t h   a   c h a i r

I needed to find a new chair for my family room. Something that would go with my brown leather couches and something that would hide kid and pet messes.

I found this chair at Cost Plus World Market.
{sorry not the greatest picture}

I love the shape and the tufting and how it is small enough not to over-power my room.

Since my home is very open {one room right off another room} I needed to have the living room and family room in the same color story.


Even though I love the polka dot pillows, they were not working in my new color palette of greys, greens, blues and soft yellows. 
I moved them to the kids playroom and they are more fitting there.

I bought a curtain panel from Cost Plus that matched the chair and made some pillows for both my family room and living room.



Softer, calmer. I am happy with the new color palette. 

Remember this library table I bought?

I sanded the top, stained it, and sealed it.

The base got a coat of Benjamin Moore, Simply White, satin {in Aura}. Have I told you how much I love Aura paint? It is worth the $60 a gallon it costs. It goes on sooo smoothly, dries quickly, and I need less coats of paint to finish a piece. With one gallon I can probably use it on 4-6 different projects so it is worth the $60.
