The sun is shining, the grass is green, birds are chirping and flowers are blooming. Spring is here! I have upgraded my living and dining room a bit for a more airy and spring/summer feel. I’m absolutely loving this weather and my evolving living and dining room. I say evolving because it continually changes as I find items and furniture pieces I need here and there. I would say I’m a collector. I love collecting items I fall in love with. Whether I can use them now or “perhaps” later I will purchase something at a flea market or thrift store if I really fall in love with it and it will eventually find a home.
Everything in this room was a hand me down, thrifted or repurposed. I like to create my own kind of style with things found from a variety of places and always at a discounted price. ; )
I Found a set of 3 of these cute fruit inspired tea towels at Tj Maxx for $5.
I’ve carried around this yellow vintage chrome table for years. It was the first item I bought when I had my very first “adult” apartment. I haven’t used it in about 9 years but because our dining room is soo small I decided it would work better for now. I’m loving the eclectic feel it gives.
I found these gorgeous frames that matched perfect with my greens and blues in my home at TJ Maxx and had to get them. I spent less than $50 on all 4, that’s a great deal. I have tons of bird, herb, and flower prints from old books I have picked up here and there at the flea market. I like to change them out.
My coffee table I painted. Made from a lazy susan and a plant stand. Shop your home and be creative it works!
Painted an old bench from a table set my mom picked up for me at an auction for $5 to cover the ugly air conditioning unit. The other half is used in the dining room being used as bench seating around our vintage dining table.
Covered these chairs with white blankets I found. The fabric is a deep red with gold flowers. It does not go with my room at all and I have not found any I like as of yet to replace these. However, I have seen some painted ones. I may just test that out!
Well I hope you enjoyed my yet again updated living and dining room. I had to get ready for the spring and summer months! I just shopped my own home, did a little repurposing, painting, scored a few items at our local flea market and clearance sections and spruced it up for a budget friendly price!
Peace In Love…
