A room that is just waiting for the wonders of your imagination to take hold.
Being able to customize, design and decorate exactly how you want.
But what about all the other times, when you have to make do with existing furniture? Something functional but that is really rather blah?
We have a piece of furniture in our living room that I am definitely not in love with. A mud brown armoire. We’ve had it for years to house our ancient t.v. and stereo components. It’s not hideous, but to be honest, I’d like to kick it to the curb. I’ve had in my mind, the perfect replacement piece while searching new and used sources for the past two years. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find the exact design that is floating around in my head. (That isn’t exorbitantly expensive.)
So, since the armoire will continue residing with us for the time being, I decided to embrace it (figuratively, of course) and incorporate its big, brown rectangular shape into the design.
The gallery is a mixture of paint on canvas, store-bought coral prints, posters cut and framed and original art by yours truly.
So, what about you? Do you happen to reside with a somewhat boring, outdated or unloved piece of furniture as a permanent housemate? And what are your fabulous solutions for incorporating it into the rest of your amazing design?
