|Beautiful Trinidad, CA, where we spent Thanksgiving 2013.|
It is hard to believe that we are already into 2014. I am enjoying a restful week off from work and beginning to consider which home improvement projects I can tackle this year on a budget (by September we will have both sons in college and the word "budget" will take on an entirely new meaning).
Before Christmas I was able to score a great deal on two lamps for our living room from Lamps Plus. I also ordered a new area rug from Pottery Barn (which is currently on backorder and is just as well because I need more time to pull together the "new look" for our living room).
Below is a bit of an inspiration shot of the look I hope to achieve (our fireplace is in our family room so I won't be able to replicate this look, but it is a similar idea):

And here is what we've got right now:
I told hubby that the update would cost less than $500! Guess I will be shopping the house for most of the décor! :)
