A Bookcase Makeover!

 
 
Be still my heart...I am in LOVE with this bookcase makeover from The Precious Little Things in Life!
 
To give this bookcase a pulled together and cohesive feel...Stacy covered all her books with white paper.  Then used a pretty light blue for her accent color.  She also painted the back wall of her bookcase a neutral tan.  The overall look...fresh n' light and uncluttered! 
 
To really appreciate this new look, you have to see the "Before"...
 
 
 
Yup...Clutter City!  Too many books, and too much color.  Let's have one more look at the "After" shall we?
 
 
Ahhh, a cluttered bookcase gets an Inspiring Makeover.  Click here to read more about this Amazing Transformation!

Thrifty & Chic Family Room!

 
 
Check out this Thrifty n' Chic Family Room from Sweet Something Design!
 
 
 
Ahhh, those blue, green and orange accents are the perfect punch of color this neutral space needs.  I also love the stone colored walls and black & white frame gallery.  See the orange tray with the coral?  That's a $5 plastic tray from Walmart spray painted! 
 
Go here to see how this neutral space was brought to life with TEXTURE & COLOR...all while on a budget!

A Nature Inspired...Home Office!

 
  
Ahhh, red coral.  Just one design element that I am lovin' these days!
 
Faux Red Coral Branch
 
 
Pottery Barn 
 
I've wanted to use red coral in my home's decor for a while, but didn't want things looking too beachy.  After all, we live in Charlotte, NC...nearly 3 hours from the beach.
 
But when re-decorating our home office...I saw an opportunity.  I didn't want this room to look cold or corporate, but instead I wanted a warm, nature inspired room that simply felt inviting.
 
So I found 4 red coral prints, that I snagged from Allposters.com for only $15.99 each.  And framed em' up in a group with frames I already had on hand.
  

Now our desk here actually isn't a desk, but rather a dining room table from World Market.  This was my thrifty solution to purchasing an executive desk that  could have easily cost anywhere from $2,000 - $4,000 or more...yikes!  The downside to using a table as a desk is file and document storage.  So for organization we used desktop files atop the desk, and modern brown wicker baskets for below the desk.



A few other elements in the room...a cream shag rug, brown silk curtains, and a Pottery Barn lamp.  Now this room is totally functional as an office, yet still warm and inviting.  And because it's right next to our Family Room...it gets used by everyone in our family, especially the kids! 
 
Okay, adding a chic trend...without breakin' the bank!  Yup, that's just one of my favorite ways to decorate.
