Welcome to the "sitting area" of my master bedroom! We have been so blessed in this house to have a bedroom that allowed for a sitting area, and also blessed because it was nearly FREE to pull together!! :)
We have a Nantucket B&B feel to our bedroom, and I really wanted a chaise for this area. But the budget wouldn't allow for any new furniture (nor window treatments for our 5 windows in here!), so I got creative by using what I already had!!
I used a FREE wing chair paired with a FREE ottoman!
The wing chair we got from Hubby's old company when they were going to throw it out for a newer model, and they offered it to us first!! Yee-haw! :) And the ottoman came free from my sister with the matching free chair and couch that are now slipcovered in my sunroom here.
A couple of white slipcovers on the furniture, and I was good to go! :)
But wait.......those slipcovers don't match, do they?? ;)
Nope!....They work together because they are both white. But the ottoman slipcover matches the sunroom slipcover set (so I can use them all together in another house/another room someday). And the wing chair slipcover is actually our old matelesse bedspread!
I just draped, tucked, and safety pinned it on!
It covers up the old slipcover I had on there! I tried to bleach this tan slipcover white, but it wouldn't work! Just came out extra fresh and clean! :)
See how I just safety pinned the back together? No one goes into that little corner, so there was no need to be perfect about it! :) So what if it doesn't even cover the whole back?!!
Add a pillow I had from HomeGoods, and a cute antique cabinet filled with treasures, starfish, and a picture of us on our honeymoon from years ago, and there you have it!
A Quick Chair Changeout!!!
I'd also like to say a BIG
I am so thankful to hear from so many of you that you enjoy my blog! I was also so happy to hear from some first time commenters as well....It's so nice to meet you!! :)
I want you to know that I read each and every comment carefully, and I am very thankful for the feedback! I hear you loud and clear, dear friends! :)
I'm going to watch the colored fonts, I honestly had no idea that it would be hard to read for some of you! Since the colors show up great on my computer I just assumed that everyone could see them easily. But I appreciate the heads up, and I'll try to not use them as much anymore! :) (btw....is it ALL colors that are hard? several of you mentioned the green....how about the blue?? let me know!)
I also heard that you like my posts in general, especially the decorating and project posts. You also like low cost ideas and Creating a Welcoming Home!
I am planning to keep my post topics about the same as now, but I am going to try to keep them less wordy (after today -- LOL!!!) than before, and use more pictures!
Now, don't you worry....The Blessed Nest isn't going "big time" (I am a small town girl after all!) and going to make crazy changes leaving you wondering what happened!! :) I just have been thinking about some small things that could improve the "visits" I get to have with y'all!!!
I just want to say, THANK YOU!! Your comments and opinions mean a lot! :)
