    Everything looks just beautiful Rebecca! I am truly amazed at how you have transformed this room and now I know how dangerous it would be to go thrifting with you and Kelly. LOL! ~Vanessa
    At The Picket Fence thank you Vanessa! Dangerous or fun? Now to using the miter saw and wainscoting! Eeeeek! Plus, I am so tired of the bright yellow. Grey? Beige? Missed

    Beautifully done The thing I love most about buying used is our home doesn't look like everyone elses.
    Zelda? . I agree! I love the unique pieces I have and can't tell you how many times someone has picked up a piece or pointed at it wanting to know where I got it in hopes that they can get one too. Always fun to know it is unique and one-of-a-kind! : )

    I loved this post and the photos of a lovely room. My husband and I lived in our motor home for 12 years but, finally, decided to take advantage of all the foreclosed homes on the market and picked a cute two bedroom home. BIG furniture! So,

    The room looks wonderful! I see so many people redecorating with sofa's and chairs from CL, but with bed bugs being a huge problem I fear introducing them through someone elses fabric furnishings. I stick to hard surfaced items to add punch to my home.

    I love this room. You and I have similar tastes except you have better couches and chairs (I have big dogs that love to sleep on anything). My living room includes my great great grandmothers' steamer trunk, My Mothers bureau from the 40s (redone), a
