My Cosy Corner


I was just moving things round, like you do, when I stumbled upon this cosy little corner. :)

This corner was a bit of a dead space in our lounge room so you can imagine my excitement when after moving a few things around and adding some gorgeous flowers, I created my own little cosy corner. :)  Let me take you for a little tour ....

THE CHAIR

The chair is a "project in the process".  It is so comfortable.  I got it for $5 at a yard sale.  I've recovered it in beautiful drop cloth, but that is all so far.  I plan to paint the woodwork white and add some graphics to the fabric.   

THE CUSHIONS

The two cushions I covered myself. One is a burgundy red flower design, and the other is a print onto calico fabric directly through the printer, then sewed on to a drop cloth cover.

 WRITING DESK

My gorgeous white antique writing desk fit perfectly under my teal shutters.  


The writing desk was also a redo.  You can click here to see the full make over tutorial.

THE WALL DECOR

I'm really pleased with the wall art in this area which has mostly been bare since we moved in. 

All of them are projects I have made myself and you can see all the tutorials by clicking the links under each picture. :)

SIDE TABLE & CREAM BASKET

The small round side table was purchased at a yard sale for $5 and is awaiting a make over. :)

The cream wooden basket was $1 at a yard sale and is perfect as is.  No doubt it will soon be filled with decorating magazines. :)

FLORAL ARRANGEMENT
The gorgeous flowers were a special treat for myself yesterday from Blushing Blooms Florist.  They are a mix of some of my favourite flowers - snapdragons, roses and lilies.  I can't wait till they are in full bloom and smelling divine! And they fit perfectly in my new cosy corner.  

MY FINISHED NEW COSY CORNER
Now I can admire (cause there is never time to actually sit down with 2 small children) my lovely little corner filled with things I love. :)

P.S.  Yes, I made the numbered drop cloth cushions on the lounge too.  You can view the tutorial here
