In my ongoing quest to rid my home of the 90's color palatte, I've made yet another small change towards my goal! I sold three rugs on Craigslist - Yay! Now I need to find replacements, but I haven't yet found exactly what I'm looking for. The other thing I decided to do was slipcover the painted cedar chest I had been using as a coffee table in my living room.
It really has seen better days. I painted it black several years ago and it was used in my family room for a long time and then I more recently moved it to the living room. Here is a before pic with one of the rugs I sold.
I added some foam wrapped in batting to the top of the chest lid - nothing permanent though. It's held in place by a few staples under the edge of the lid.
I didn't plan on the two tone look - it is something that happened along the way and I think I like the contrast of the two fabrics - what do you think?
I hope you are having a wonderful week! Today it is supposed to be in the 60's - just a few days ago it was in the low teens! I really should clean my sun porch with the nice weather, but I NEED to run to Home Goods to check out their rug selection first!
