Hidden Treasure

Much like the Nester(one of my favorite bloggers) http://nestingplacenc.blogspot.com/ , I like to keep my son's toys organized and basically hidden. He has been on a pirate kick for about 2 years now, and it is still going strong. Here is where we store his toys in the family room.

Avant et Après

BEFORE

Don't you enjoy a good before and after post? Well, voila! I wanted to create a conversation area in my living room so I found these cute matching chairs on craigslist. While the fabric wasn't bad at all, it was too dark for my taste. I recovered it in this cameo toile fabric. I was torn on whether to paint the trim white or silver leaf it, or just leave it alone. As you can see, I opted for the latter.

AFTER



Try to ignore the annoying lamp cord in the photo! I need to tape that to the table. The table is also my sewing machine. The little ottoman below it also stores a lot of my sewing sundries.
I also want to thank Dawn from the Feathered Nest for her sweet comment. She is one of my favorite bloggers!
