Living room and Kitchen 2018 Update in Home Decor

Hi everyone,

My apartment has gone through an amazing change as of January 15th. I have been a very busy beaver painting, reupholstering, staining, redecorating and purging every corner of my apartment. Goodwill is very happy every time I stop by (4 times so far) with the car loaded to the max. I have gone into the gray and white farmhouse decor in a modern way...the Joanna Gains style from the hit show "Fixer Upper".

I am still working it at it and photos were taken a month ago so some things in the apartment have been changed since then. When I am completed I will post my home tour photos so you can all be able to see the difference in decor with before and after photos. 

This is my living room and part of my kitchen still a work in progress.
As of today the bookcase in this first photo was removed and was replaced with a black table.
The plants will be removed this next month and will be going into the balcony once the weather warms up.


New sewn cushions look so much better and new blue frames to match the curtains.


My wreath was lightened up with white paint since it was a lot darker and the brown center was replaced with black fabric..


New white sheers and blue curtains.


The mirrors were repainted in gray and black with twine edging.


Lamps were repainted in gray with twine decor and beads..

The shelf was sanded and repainted from cranberry to gray with a natural wood top.

Hand Painted Farm Sign

Hello there,

Last week I made a sign for my new modern farmhouse decor for my living room. I posted it on facebook and a friend of mine loved it so much that she asked me if I would make one for her chicken coop that said "Fresh Eggs". So a few days later I worked on her sign and this is what I created.  This morning I sent the sign she wanted from Ohio to New Hampshire. I think she will be very pleased when she sees what I made for her. So this is my gift to her, I hope you all like it.

1. Beginning stage
Sand and painted cream


2. Stenciling the phrase she wanted.


Before


After


3. Aging and decorating
Sanded edges, sides and front, aged it with brown and tan paint, sanded again and decorated it with a heart.
