If You Give a Girl a New Floor...

When our terrazzo floors were shinned up (I'll do a post on that soon), it really made our walls and base boards look dirty and dingy. In came a visit from Aunt Jane and Uncle Dave. They are my husband's relatives who, lucky for me, love to paint.

They worked hard on painting the common areas like the living room, dining room, etc.

Now that the walls are freshly painted, I'm itching for new furniture. Well, new-to-me furniture anyway. Not for the entire house, just the living room. I'm scouring craigslist for a slip-covered sofa and chair. the slip-covered loveseat that I purchased through craigslist in February is now in our master bedroom. Because I am on a tight budget, it's taking some time to find what I am looking for. Here are some of the pieces that have caught my eye.

As always with craigslist, timing is everything. I want to find an amazing deal and that takes patience and time. Until then, I'll keep on searching. After all, the hunt is part of the fun!

Our walls are starting to look pretty dingy too. Mostly from dirty little boy handprints:) I love the white sofas!

Relatives that paint for you? Will you adopt me?
I love all those furniture sets~but the one with the really skinny arms and the ties on the slipcover? COOL!
Happy Thanksgiving!

I agree, timing IS everything. I saw a daybed come up the day before we left for Thanksgiving. I had no time to go look at it and now it's gone! Need to keep looking :)
