Painting and other randomness

Sometimes just a little paint and a change of color is all it takes to make the changes that can make you smile.

I have been moving some furniture around the last month. 
I sold our sofa to a neighbor and had plans of purchasing another one. 

I have owned a Drexel heritage sofa for almost 30 yrs and let me tell you this sofa has been everywhere.

It even resided in our store for several years.
The last 10 years it has been in our back room. 
I kept it covered with seasonal quilts and one of our dogs thought it was hers.

After the sofa was gone my hubs and I were sitting watching TV and I asked if he would help me move the sofa into our empty spot. 
We both agreed it looks great. 
Not the usual look that you see, but that has always been my style. 
It didn't take me long to pick out fabric and get some new ideas for the sofa.
It was unfortunate that our upholster couldn't get to it anytime soon so it sits in the living room with the old plaid fabric of yesteryear. Lol 
The changes in the rooms got me to thinking of the vacated sofa in the back room
The kids play in this area so I didn't want to junk it up with a lot of furniture again.

The secretary in this room has been closed up but now it is opened 
It adorns a lamp and a newly purchased chair.
As you can see the chair has really good "bones" and all it needs is a little TLC.

With Cece Caldwell paint in hand it has been transformed. 
I am so happy with the outcome. 
Makes the area so much more inviting. 
The grand kids like it as well 
Great place to color and write!!

As soon as the sofa gets the fresh new fabric in it I will post a picture of it.

I hope everyone has been able to get a project or two done this year that puts a smile on their face.  

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year friends.
