Remember awhile ago when I told you I was working on re-decorating our living room? What, you don’t remember? OK, I don’t blame you. I think it was sometime back in the Jurassic period. I would have forgotten about it too if I didn’t have to look at it EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Well, I am pleased to announce that I am finally making progress. Not a lot, but at least it’s a step.
I’m taking it one wall at a time. I started with the largest and most important one. The wall above the couch, (that everyone can see when they come to my front door), is no longer nekked. Hurray!! Here is what I have so far:
I got the corbels at a garage sale for $2 each and spray painted them. I filled them with rocks from the dollar store. The greenery was bought on sale at Hobby Lobby. Love that place! I plan on wrapping them with ribbon as soon as I can find the right blue color. It needs to match the fabric I bought to upholster the two chairs that will sit across from the couch. And I am going to add more pillows to the couch.
The painting in the middle. It has special meaning for our family. That little boy standing by the Savior. He’s our little boy. Our six year old. Our neighbor is an amazing artist, and he used our son as the model. The title of the painting is “I Will Always Love You”. I almost cry every time I look at it. So amazing. I’m going share a little bit more about it for my Sunday inspiration message this week. Isn’t it stunning?
