Coming along slowly.

Sooo...the consensus on my living room is that I need to add more color. After pondering your comments I came to the conclusion that I completely agree! :) Slowly I've been adding a little splash of color here and there. It's not done yet, but we're getting there.
I bought this bird cage at Ross and then spray painted it and covered the back with fabric. I want to put something cool in it, but I haven't found that "cool" thing yet. :)
And then I made some pillows as discussed in the last post...I loooove them! And I got the fabric at JoAnns (gasp!). I get a lot of emails from people who only have a JoAnns in their area and they get so frustrated with the selection there. So I've been doing a little searching there and thought I'd try and show you a few of combos that I have found and have come to enjoy, so then maybe you will have an easier time shopping there.
Happy Wednesday!
Edit: I posted this and then realized it's Tuesday! Haha, jokes on me.

Hahahahaha! You make me laugh so much! Yes indeed, it IS Tuesday, but I really wish it was Wednesday, because then I would be that much closer to my birthday! I love what you did with that bird cage and I'm thinking I need to add some color and spice to my home as well.

Great idea with the bird cage! It looks so cool! :D The pillows are great as well! We only have Jo-Anns here too, but I've gotten lucky and found some great stuff. Just need to search thoroughly! :)

LOVE the fabric! I was sitting here trying to figure out who was the designer and why I didn't carry it, and then I saw Joanns. Every now and then they get in some awesome fabrics! I love them! And the birdcage is adorable!

I can't believe your husband agreed to let you put out the bird cage. Kinda reminds me of the "type writer days" lol. And like you said once it is spray painted its not like you can return it right? It all looks so so good. Now we just need the before and afters to see the real AAAAAAAA!!!! :)

very cute! love the fabric...i think they carry some cute fabrics you just have to look through everything :)

i've missed a lot of your older posts, that was cute of your husband to update on what he's been working on! love your living room, i say add a bunch of framed pictures of your cute family along the top of your cabinets...i would totally take advantage of that space for seasonal decor!! and i'm all about garlands, i have them for every season...just don't use that outdated ivy lol!

I get so jealous when I read your posts. I would spend 30 bucks per pillow on your coouch. And who would think to spray paint the birdcage? This is why when in a craft store I break out. I feel so inept. You do such amazing work!
