A neglected corner of the living room no longer!

Before I get into details about my little makeover I would love to remind you that I have a little giveaway going on----I would LOVE it if you would enter it!!! 
 Click here to check out how to win a coffee sack! & possibly be featured on my blog!!!


Does anyone else have a corner of their living room or really anywhere in their house that has been a bit neglected????  

I sure do---in fact I have quite a few that all are just vying for my love and attention....
But lets face it I have only been in my new place for about a month and I think that the things I HAVE accomplished so far are just great.  
Soooo now I am finally getting around to the little forgotten and neglected but NOT overlooked or unloved areas of my home.

Starting here:


This little area has been changing a lot but just can't quite get situated... I realize that functional is needed---so the baskets are a must stay.  The table is one that I adore and since she fits so nicely she also gets to stay.  I must also point out the not-so-little-window I picked up two weeks ago for FREE at a garage sale----I have been wanting to do SOMETHING with it.... but I was not sure what until last night!  


Have you ever started decorating one area and then got overwhelmingly distracted by another?  That happened to me.  See I have another little decorating project going on but everything I was collecting for that area just happened to look better in this little living room area.....arrggghhhh!  Butt really I am happy to have this little area feeling less neglected and more like part of my beach-cottage themed living room like it should be.


I had really wanted to use those pictures somewhere else....butttt I kind of like them right where they are for now!  Anddd I have been wishing for a place to use that quote!


So a couple of eye hooks later and some ribbon, I found an easy way to hang the frames up----I am always interested in a way that allows for easy change---(I LOVE seasonal decor) so I thought this was a good way of keeping things simple!





Add a little vinyl and that is about it. 


Not bad for a quick little makeover right?!?!

If you missed the other corner of my living room---check out my mantle up-cycled from a cabinet here.

Also I am linking up here---check out these parties for amazing inspiration!

Wow, that window is such a good find! And for free at that! It's a great conversation piece. I always get distracted like that, too. I swear I have DIY ADD. Haha.

Hey thanks for the thoughtful comments!! I'm thrilled that you're following now, too!

That is SO pretty! And yes, I've been distracted by other areas before too. I swear, I am going to hang my tin hearts all over the house because I keep finding other spots for them. Thanks for linking with Air Your Laundry Friday! xo Jami

Love this! My husband found me a great big picture window with a wooden frame, but I had NO clue what to do with it. I think I'll do something like this :)

Amazing what you can pick up at a garage sale, very good prices, and with a little imagination, can make a huge difference. Well done.
