Remember that art Chloé helped *cough* me with?
It has now a special place in my living room, right above the couch.
Just look at that baby.
After we painted the silhouette, we added lace inside the black area. The lace brings texture to the art and really completes the look I was going for.
Since I haven’t posted about my appartment in a while, I thought I would do a quick wrap-up of the changes that took place since this last post.
- I am now the owner of a real couch, not a sad little loveseat that had to be hidden under a bedspread. That is quite the improvement.
- HelloOo Pottery Barn cushions found while thrifting. $3 cushions make me happy.
- My Kijiji surprise of 2012: a set of industrial dining chairs. These babies had me wake up early on a Saturday morning and drive all the way downtown in a major snow storm. (Oh I love you so, my darlings)
- Another DIY turned an ugly faux-leather ottoman that had been distroyed by Henri and Lola (MEAN KITTIES!!) into a sleek mid-century inspired beauty. This project was quite an easy one – but it did take a lot of time.
Sadly, I truly doubt that Henri and Lola will save this new reupholstery from destruction. I believe I might have to splurge sooner than later on a mid-century teak coffee table… Sometimes, a girl gotta do what she gotta do! HA!
