The rest of the Den

If you haven't signed up to win my First Giveaway, go here now to win a beautiful Valentine wreath. 

Well a few days ago I began to show you some of the den but I didn't want the post to babble on forever so I broke it up into 2 days. Today I want to show you the rest of the space. I'll start with the sofa.

Macy's momma LOVE'S pillows (uh who doesn't?) and so she had a plan of what she wanted it to look like. So here is her pillow story... (I got that off of  Sara's house on HGTV, love that show) Are you starting to see how these post can just ramble... uh ok. The 2 outside pillows came with the new sofa. The muslin pillows and the center pillow we made. This muslin is really got a lot of texture and a great color, scored a 1/2 bolt at a garage sale for pennies. Wait you want to see them up close?
Delicious right!

I love this little flower, guess what it was in is former life?
Yep, an old ladies jacket, did you guess? (Sorry if you like the jacket, I do too, that is why I bought it at Goodwill) These pillows all turned out so CUTE! I think all of us are trying to ruffle anything we can find in the house now.

Oh and this carpet. I love you Home Goods, the PERFECT carpet for this home! Like the vintage coffee table, lovin it!

Um check out this tv cabinet AND that TV. I think it like 98 inches, well not quite but it's huge. Gotta keep the man of the house happy!

  
Some of these items are Goodwill finds that have been redone. Anything blue we painted and glazed. The big black and white vases on top were a splurge. When I decorate a room I always have a couple of splurges, that is how I keep the cost down, mix thrift, sales and splurges together.

Speaking of splurges, what do you think about this one? We saw this at Haverty's and I fell in love! Macy's momma went back with coupon on hand and mark down because of few scratches and can you believe she got it for $37.00! Get up off the floor, I know, I wish she had bought 2! It's such a great piece for the room. But it was kinda lost in the corner so we added scrapbook paper.
I had to get out the Silhouette machine for this one. Isn't is cute!

I showed you this space before. We thought that pic looked lost so we had to add a little something to it.

I love these, I want to find some for my house! We got the frames at Goodwill and painted them black and added the knocker and door knob.
A little improvement, unless you like swan pics.
Did you notice the blue zebra print chair, I know to dieeee for! Another Home Goods score.
Isn't this clock so adorable? She picked this up at a local flea market called First Monday in Canton, You made have heard of it. It is the most amazing flea market. If you ever have the opportunity to go, go!
Oh and the curtains we made. These are flocked material, taupey grey color. We found these at Marshalls' I think for 10.00 premade panels. We covered 4 windows with two panels. You can't beat that price!
So that pretty much covers the den. Come back soon I'll share the kitchen next! If you missed the first part of the den or bedroom or bath, take a look at my archives. They have been posted in 2011 and a couple in December of 2010.  Have you checked out my giveaway? Go here  to check it out, and don't be selfish, invite your friends!
