{Re*Made} Simple Makeovers: Sewing Table

God bless whoever invented paint!

And God bless whoever thought spraying paint would be even better!

Isn't it amazing what a little bit of paint can do?  There's been a lot of change happening in my house, but most of it has been just a simple paint change.  So I'm gonna have a few quickie posts with befores and afters showing these simple changes that are making big impacts in my home.

First up is my sewing table.  My grannie gave me this table when we moved into our first home.  It had been left in a house she was selling and asked if I wanted it.  It was in very "well worn" condition, even missing two of the drawers.  But I loved it and welcomed it into our home.

I used to have a philosophy with old stuff:  their "well worn" condition should be left as is, unless you are restoring it to its former glory.  And so I left that sewing table as it was:  rusting base, warped & chipped top, missing drawers.

When I Wish Upon a Rug

Oh my, ya'll.  I've got some bad news.  Chevron is out for 2015!  Daaaahh!

Now, normally, this wouldn't be a huge deal because with trends, you should do them in moderation and with items that can be easily - and ideally, inexpensively - replaced.  I'll say for the most part, I have lived by that rule.

There is one piece in my house, however, where I went for it:  my living room rug.

It's chevron.  Big, bold, colorful chevron.  

My new rug was first seen here.
