This is a post about overcoming fear....
Fear of going for all white furniture....
With a family of 3 cats, 2 kids and 1 sports watching husband...
a couch has to do a lot of work...
But, last month, after much deliberation...I just pulled the plug...
and haven't looked back since.
I love the transformation the white slipcovers have made.
Because we knew we were on a budget and
that this would not be "forever" furniture...
we went with Ikea's collection for a sectional and two chairs.
The main reason was that the extra slipcovers are so inexpensive
that worrying about something happening to the pieces
does not have to play into our decision process anymore.
I added an old ladder I found at the Flea Affaire for a rustic look.
The "beach" sign I made from a re-purposed drawer front.
I also created vintage shutter "art" for my wall.
This vintage wooden crate was another $10 find from the antique show.
The coffee table was one that has been with us for 10 years now
The calm white makes me smile every time I am in the room.
Here's the before...the room actually looks and feels larger
with more furniture in it now.
The window treatments will eventually become white curtains soon.
Have a fear-less week!
