Mirror Makeover {From Boring to Fabulous!}

Hello friends!

As Summer is wrapping up, I'm finding myself making small updates around the home. My newest obsessions is lightening up all the brown we have going on. I showed you how I painted our brown side tables a light gray in my Living Room Updates post, and that kind of got the ball rolling in the right (and fun) direction!

I have many brown things to paint on my to do list but this MIRROR MAKEOVER had to happen fast! I couldn't stand looking at the sad thing in my entryway much longer.

New Living Room Curtains & Other Living Room Updates

Hello friends!

So......

The living room has undergone a few small but lovely changes in the last couple of weeks since you last saw it on my Summer Living Room Tour. This was totally unplanned but I always like those changes best!

One change led to another change which led to another change and well, you know how that goes. All these small changes are leading to more changes and I'm so excited about them!

The first change that got the ball rolling were these awesome new curtains I got from Target. I love that they have a neutral background for the teal pattern to stand out against.


And in case you don't remember what my old spray painted curtains looked like, here's a reminder:

The Look For Less: DIY Rope Mirror

I almost didn't blog about this fabulous rope mirror. For one, the idea is like a gazillion years old in blog-land and secondly, I actually made it in the beginning of the year and forgot about it.

How To Keep Your Rug In Place While Adding Comfort To Your Feet With Rug Pad USA {And a coupon code!}

I was provided a rug pad from Rug Pad USA for this review, but as always all opinions and thoughts expressed are 100% my own.

Rugs are fabulous. They add warmth, personality and style to any room and do an awesome job of dividing spaces within a room. And in my opinion, they complete a room beautifully. Not to mention, they come in different textures, patterns,styles and colors. They're just so much fun to pick out, right?

But as fabulous as they are, there is nothing more annoying than a rug that doesn't stay put! Or worse, a gorgeous rug that isn't very, um...comfortable on your feet.

I can just see your nods in agreement...

So you have your beautiful rug but it keeps sliding all over the place and isn't very comfortable to lay on or stand on, you say?

I did too, but now I have the secret to KEEPING MY RUG IN PLACE WHILE ADDING COMFORT TO MY FEET!!

Easier Than Ever No-Sew Floor Pillows

Hello, friends!

These easy DIY NO SEW FLOOR PILLOWS are the result of my hubby and daughter loving to chill on our area rug during movie nights. We have amazingly comfortable couches, yet movie night after movie night these two ALWAYS end up on the floor.

More power to them, but I'm a couch type girl. Laying on the floor does not intrigue me at all!

Even though we have a very comfortable area rug, I figured it would be nice to make them some floor pillows that they could use for extra comfort while we all enjoy a movie together.

I'm telling you guys, these are the easiest no sew floor pillows, ever!! You don't even need to measure with my lazy but oh so effective method!! But my mathematician friends need not worry, I also included a formula for you, so you can get down with your bad measuring self!
