a landing area(that is now the home of The Tattered Tassel aka my office)
a large size window
a bench seat with storage area(yeah!!)
This is what that area looked like when we purchased the house:
After 7 months of living here I finally got around to changing it.
Here are the after photos.(Sorry for the bad lighting)
I purchased the pillows at an antique store in Aiken, SC. The dealer just happened to be working in her booth that day. She told me that she made them herself, needlework and all, and had just brought them into the store the day before. I love them. One has Dogwoods and the other Magnolias, not to mention the lovely red birds! I knew when I saw them that they would be perfect for this area. They are also reversible...
I paid $35.00 a pillow. I know, I know not a thrifty deal but still a good deal considering the great handiwork and the fact they are reversible. When it's right you just know it. :o)
I purchased two of these candle sconces for $7.99 each a Ross.
The candles were $5.99 each at Ross. I realize they are tall but I will use them and they will soon fit just perfectly.
Curtain panels were purchased at Wal-Mart. I can't remember how much they cost. I think they are still available.
There you have it. My new updated landing area.(Again sorry for the lighting.)
I'm linking this before and after to Susan's fun blog party, Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps
on the Porch.
Have a wonderful week!
