|Happy 4th from the Edwards Punks ~2011~|
Although it was a Holiday, I couldn't refrain from doing a little Craigslist shopping. I found this chair & ottoman first thing this morning, called the nice lady & went to get it a few hours later! It still isn't 100% what I envision for the living room, however it is a better fit than the other one I had & do keep in mind that only shopping Craigslist can limit you
quite a bit on what you can find. Lol
So before...Nice, but a little contemporary/modern. Not loving it in my new styled space.
And after...Getting closer...One Craigslist buy at a time!
This is a sage/cream gingham. Gingham is not one of my favorite fabrics, but I love the style & shape & the tufting is just TDF. So for now...Until I can find this chair in a white/off white/pale yellow solid fabric the gingham will have to do.
Although I love the faux silk blueish/grayish drapes they are throwing me off now with this green chair. I am trying SO hard to NOT be matchy matchy & use what I love. I am contemplating getting some burlap to make some simple drapes...Any thoughs would be greatly appreciated.
The rug is really close to making it's way onto Craigslist. I am afraid it too is dragging the room down...Sigh!
I am going to
hopefully pick up an old dresser tomorrow, however it is really short. Not sure what the deal is with it. I have seen a few of them in my time & maybe someone can fill me in on the history of them. It looks more like a cedar/hope chest, but with drawers like a dresser. Any who I am planning on using it as a TV stand so I can get rid of the dark/shiny cherry armoire I currently have. It's just not working for me.
So check back for some photos tomorrow & see if you can help me out. As long as it is as advertised I should be bringing it home! Like I've said before...I take on projects faster than I can get them done!
Wish me luck!!!
