I took a small break working on the guest room to give the living room a quick makeover. I loved how it looked all dressed for Spring with lots of green and yellow, you can see it right HERE, but for Summer I wanted to give it another look.
The great thing is, it was super easy!
As usual, the main focus in this room are the old windows, they are such a big display, this time I gave them the look of an American flag using burlap ribbons.
*This is NOT a flag, it's not intended to be a flag, it is only a patriotic art project*
The materials you'll need:
- 1 big spool natural color burlap ribbon
- 2 big spools red burlap ribbon
- 2 big spools blue with stars burlap ribbon
The instructions are plain and simple: Cut the burlap to fit the old windows and attach it with tape.
At first I thought I only needed one spool of red, but nope :/ One more trip to Walmart was needed. The natural color burlap was longer than the red or blue. This is how it looked mid way.
Up close this is how they look on the windows.
Once the windows were ready, it was time to bring some more flair to the room, my vintage watering can was perfect to hold some white flowers.
New napkin pillows were placed on the sofa...
And the room got totally changed!
