I hope this post finds you all doing well.
It has been another busy week around here, but that's ok, the weekend is almost here. :)

Today I am sharing with you a small makeover I gave my to family room. 
Come on in and I will show you around.

I had NOT planned to do this, I promise, :) but I went in to Hancock Fabrics to pick up something else 
and run into a big sale, well, what can I say, couldn't be avoided. 
I saw this pretty linen fabric and I knew I couldn't leave it behind.

 And the fabric sale was so huge that it only cost me $22.00 to make these changes. 

It was a remnant, but big enough to make some drapes, pillows covers and a little leftover for the breakfast area. 
Not quite finished with that yet, so I will share soon.
I can't take pictures on front of a window to save my life, so, please forgive the quality of the pictures. 

I even had enough fabric to make a couple extra accent pillows for the fireplace and small chair.

And since I was already changing things, I gave the mantle a different look.

On the coffee table, I put together a small vignette using my basket tray and a pretty Spring jar 
my son bought me for Mother's Day.

Before and after.

Thank you all for visiting! I really appreciate you taking the time to stop by.
Until next time!



  1. Hi Maria! Oh, the drapes are just gorgeous! What beautiful fabric and I can certainly understand why you had to have it! The print looks so pretty in your room, which is most gorgeous by the way! Hope you're doing well.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  2. I really like the new look. The material is gorgeous.

  3. I love your new window treatment - the rods, the two different fabrics at each end and the center scroll piece (or is that at stencil).

    Beautiful fabric . . . beautiful room.

  4. that looks spectacular Maria... I better run up to our hancocks and see if they are also having a sale.

  8. What a nice change, Maria! It is a great look for the warmer months. I hate when that happens ~ finding fabric that I am not looking for and can't resist! : ) In my case, it might sit in my craft room for months before I get to it. You are good in that you got right to it! Your mantle looks great, too. Have a wonderful weekend!
