a POP of blue
well actually more like turquoisey-blue
I've been slowly trying to incorporate some blue into my living room
to pair with my red accents and bring in more of a POP of color.
Did you ever meet Jaqueline?
I transformed this large frame from boring to bright. I had originally modge podged some black and white scrapbook paper on this wide wood frame but then got really sick of it. I wanted something different. I freehanded some wide blue and cream stripes, then antiqued it a little with wood stain. I added a thrift store frame, painted white, to the front to give it a unique look. I like the look of the wood frame along with the detailed frame.
I stacked a couple of thrift store books--I just love these colors.
Another blue frame--this one with vintage sheet music and mini bird nest with blue eggs.
I love this blue bird pillow with its large rosette purchased from Target for about $20.
My fun ruffly aprons.
And this is where I sit every morning,
checking out my favorite blogs and eating my usual, GoLean with frozen blueberries.
