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
