Neutral Navy Living Room Refresh
Hi friends! Whew, yes I am still here. And it looks like you are too! Thanks for joining me. It’s been a whirlwind of activity behind the scenes here at the cottage and I’ll catch you up on everything as soon as I can, for now, I’m happy to get to share what I did today. My neutral navy living room refresh all started with a coffee table makeover.
You might recall it’s last look [see it here] if you’ve been around awhile.
I was ready for a change after letting it “have a break”, which means it was stuffed over in The Little Cottage hoard pile-o-furniture that was living in the guest bedroom. I’m happy to report we’ve got that chore checked off our list. As we clear things out getting ready for the renovation there, I’ve been deciding what to keep and what to part with. I wasn’t quite ready to part with my $5 cutie, so I decided to give it a new look and have some fun with it!
My living room is definitely my most often changed room. Shifting small furnishing and changing out accessories, especially pillows (you know how I feel about them) makes for easy changes with little effort and most of the time, little to no budget. Making changes as the mood strikes keeps things interesting and as long as I continue to enjoy doing, I will.
I’ve been in a really blue mood lately. But blue in a good way.
I was finally ready to put my patriotic decor away so I pulled out all the red, and added a few varying shades of blue, along with my new Target (by way of Goodwill) navy/blue/coral stripe pillows! I shared them with you on Facebook live, and they are happily at home on my sofa. I’m still super-loving my HELLO pillow, so there it stays. It might be a record or something?
Aren’t the tassels on the Target/Goodwill pillows so cute?
I sure got lucky finding the new stock right when it came in. Otherwise… unless they were slip-covered (washable) I don’t think I’d have brought them home. I have standards. Swear. haha.
I know ya’ll see some of the junque I bring home on picking days…
I have to apologize before I sign off here… for some reason, my pictures uploaded terribly and they look super blurry once I add them to my article? I’ve no idea what is going on, but I ‘ll work hard to figure it out before I post again.
I was going to share the paint technique I used but I decided to keep this short with the picture problem, and I’ll share that with you just as soon as I get this little bug figured out.
Take care now! ~Shannon
