A Shabby Chic Christmas

I am so excited I can hardly contain myself I just spoke with my hubby and expressed to him the changes I would like to make to the front living rooms decor and his response to me was "Whatever you want to do babe" that is my favorite response!! So now I have some sewing to do, it is off to Joanne's fabrics to gather up some cream and red toile print fabric to recover some of the pillow cushions on my couch and new candles of course.Compared to the rest of my house the front living room has a very modern look. I am not certain why I ever even picked this particular couch set I'm sure I picked it because it is cream colored and very comfortable but the geometric patterns on the pillows have always bothered me.

So a plan was concocted, I am going to turn the pillows over and expose the solid cream color and make toile pillow coverings for the smaller pillows changing the look of the couches to something I actually like!! Why has it taken me 10 years to figure this out? Because I am that slow people!!

We will be having a Shabby Chic Christmas!!! I am going to get a tiny Charlie Brown Christmas tree have it flocked white with a burlap bottom and have it displayed on the formal living room table.I simply can not wait, the look that I have been trying to create for years is finally coming together one decorative accent at a time.


  1. How exciting my friend! It so nice when hubbys are so gracious to let go and let us decorate to make our hearts happy! I hope that you'll post pictures once the transformation is complete! I still can't wait to see pictures of your other treasure sitting in your bedroom! Hugs my friend!

  2. I can't wait to see what it looks have an amazing decorating sense as is! I can just imagine this little project will turn out beautiful.
