I am again joining Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday. I am also posting pictures of my family room. Of course, before I show my family room, I have some 'splainin' to do. This was one of the most difficult posts I have done. I'm just not comfortable showing pictures from my home. I take the pictures; look at them on my computer; don't like what I see; go move something around a little in the room; go take another picture and put it on my computer... repeat several more times. By that time, it is waaaaaay past my bedtime, and I have to work tomorrow, so I just publish it "as is" without even looking at the pictures! I'm not going to have much commentary (I know, it's shocking-Laurie at a loss for words!). I know nothing about interior decorating, so I'm not going to pretend that I can advise you on the art of decorating. You'll see what I mean when you look at the pictures. (Remember, some of my blog readers asked me to do this.)
Can you tell I don't like plain doors?
This is my "fringe is your friend" trick. The seat on this chair is really worn. I haven't been able to get it reupholstered, so I cut a piece of fabric for the seat, hot glued some fringe on, and laid it on the seat. The fringe is heaving enough to keep the fabric from sliding, and I didn't sew a stitch. Of course, if you do this, you can probably find some fabric that coordinates with the existing fabric on the chair! (Hey! I was using glue on my draperies way before Nester had a blog--simply because I do not like to sew.)
Fringe glued to fabric for a cover for the footstool. I did Velcro this fabric to the top of the footstool
If you've visited my blog very much, you know that we seat 30 or more family members for holiday dinners. You may also know that my coffee table raises to dining height when I need to use it for extra guests. In addition, the tables and the desk in the next 3 pictures can be made into tables for extra dinner guests.
Little Red House to get the links for some fabulous mosaics in Blogland today. Thank you Mary for being such a wonderful hostess for this Monday event. Thank you for coming to visit my family room. laurie
