Fall Sitting Room

Come on in to our *Fall* sitting room! 

Soooo, I've recently changed things up a bit in here to welcome the new season.  For starters, I painted one coat of Old White on top of my recently painted bookcase (BM White Dove).  I then distressed it and added clear wax.  I also removed the ottoman and replaced it with a super inexpensive higher table, which I then covered in drop cloth and then added a piece of burlap on top of that:

A simple Fall floral bunch sits in the red pitcher on the table:

I also added a bit of warmth and contrast to the bookcase by lining it with craft paper that I had on hand (pretty pumpkin courtesy of Pier One):

A super inexpensive pillow from years past was added to the white slipcovered sofa to spread a bit of warmth over there, too:

A leaf married a book page ... moved into a frame I had on hand and now they lay comfortably on an itchy piece of burlap:

In my IKEA pots, I replaced the greenery with pumpkins and raffia, and then I painted little discs "AS Old White," hot glued glittery brown numbers on them and then hot glued those onto the pots:

Love the afternoon sunlight streaming in:

And, off in the background, two leaf placemats (purchased a few years ago from Home Goods) have been attached to my mirrors:

And, LOOKIE, at my new piece de resistance!  I've been looking ... and looking ... and LOOKING for a mirrored chest, withOUT the expensive price tag.  So, I was more than thrilled to have recently spied this beauty at Tuesday Morning, at an affordable price ... couldn't get it home fast enough! 

Isn't she perty ... angles and all(?) ... bounces the light beautifully!

And, there you have it ... for *now,* anyway.  LOL!
