Living room corner refresh...

Last week I mentioned I was getting ready to freshen up a corner in my living room. Part of the plan was to use the prints called 12 Months of Flowers that belonged to my grandparents. I started and finished the corner refresh in a rather timely manner--surprisingly.

Step 1: Spray paint the frames.

The inside of the frames was black, and the outer part of the frames was speckled with black spots. The spray paint greatly improved their look and covered up some of the blemishes. The paint I used is here.

Here is the living room corner before. . .


And here it is after. . .





The space feels much lighter, and I love having something of my grandparents on my walls. I topped them off with a tiny sunburst mirror I spotted at Ross.





I swapped out the blanket and cream pillow for these. It's probably hard to tell in the picture, but the blue pattern of the pillow blends perfectly with the blue in the prints.


The baskets underneath the bench are a thrift store score I told you about months ago.


They're holding throw blankets and storing books at the moment.
