Here are a couple shots of the finished room. Not all the pillows and artwork were finished when I took the first photo, hence the difference.
|Gallery Wall - in progress|
The couch is the Henry Sofa from West Elm in gray velvet. The rug is from Joss & Main.
Our DIY projects were:
Coffee table - I found the table on the side of the road. It was a darker stain and very beat up, but I loved the MCM shape of it. Sanding off the finish revealed a beautiful pattern to the pieced circular top.
Pillows - I wanted an eclectic mix of mismatched pillows, and I've been collecting interesting fabric for a few months.
Artwork - Using newspaper templates of artwork we've collected from our travels, we arranged a gallery wall behind the couch that I think really shows off our collection.
Remote Caddy - Wanting to keep the table as clear of clutter as possible, I stitched up a remote caddy for the arm of the couch. Best part is that it isn't that visible from the rest of the room.
New Fireplace Vignette - Our fireplace isn't a working one (and really who needs one in California), so we filled it with a salvaged block and tackle, and pillar candles nestled in white sand. It looks great at night. The garland is made out of jute twine, upholstery webbing strips, and starfish.
Ottoman - This one is really my favorite. Using the excellent tutorial for a boxed cushion ottoman at Design*Sponge and at this blog, we made an upholstered ottoman out of an old end table found at a thrift store.
I am excited to share tutorials on the DIY projects soon!
