The closer it is getting to spring, the more anxious I started to get about changing our living room up a bit to make it a little more colorful and inviting. I am so excited to share what I did with you today!
I am on a tight budget, so I only spent about $40 on the transformation! I had to be very creative so I wouldn't spend too much money so I found some old things laying around the house that I already had and spruced them up a bit! The only thing I bought, was yellow spray paint (which is my Pop of Color), brown spray paint, twine, and a curtain.
My first project was wrapping three different sized containers in twine. I love the look of twine and thought it would fit in nicely. I found parfait cup, a cute little pomegranate bottle, and a Root Beer Bottle to wrap!
All you need is some twine (I found some at the dollar store) and a hot glue gun....
I just love how they turned out! As you can see, I painted the stem of the parfait cup brown so It would match a little better. I set them on a beautiful older plate that I had in the kitchen.
The next thing I did was to paint my brown lamps yellow, and change the lamp shades with a little bit of fabric. I don't even think they look like the same lamp anymore, but I absolutely love them now!!
As you can see below, I bought a curtain that I found on sale at Lowes and cut them to fit around my shade and by simply using hot glue, I was able to wrap them and completely change the look of the shade for the cost of a curtain. I still have a bunch of this fabric left over for another project in another room!
I also decided to give a few of my picture frames a pop of color with the same yellow spray paint that I used on the lamps. I was a bit nervous to do this but I am so glad now that I did! It think it looks great!
All of my frames were black, so I ended up taking them all down and painting them brown and yellow. I also painted our clock and our letter K yellow....
I also had these two little tables that were the same but different colors. They were given to me and I had been trying to figure out what to do with them. Problem solved!! I painted them yellow and put them on either side of our Recliner with a few little decorations on them! Aren't they so cute!?!?
The last thing I did was to change our shelf under our TV up a bit. I love the fabric baskets on the bottom shelves but they were too plain. The boys keep their shoes in them so I decided to free hand the letter of their first name on each basket. It was fun and the kids loved watching me! I also painted the brown baskets, you guessed it...yellow! LOL
Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you love the transformation as much as I do!
