I couldn't find any art work, on my budget, that carried just the right colors or the style that i wanted to portray. So, I cut out some of my favorite images out of an interior design book that i have, and used them as artwork. I placed them in a $10 plastic picture frame which fit right into my budget. I love walking by these images everyday... Just an FYI, I couldn't get a good shot of the picture on the wall from the glare of the lights so i took it down onto my sofa for the picture, sorry if it looks a little funny, it looks really nice on the wall
I have this awkward column in the middle of my living room, my sofa is angled in front and when viewed from the back it was an eye soar. A sofa table wouldn't work and i didn't want to close the space up with a room divider. I took this wicker laundry basket (which just delayed my laundry from getting done, being hidden away in this pretty basket) and stuffed it with blankets. I threw a decorative pillow on top and angled the cover so that the entire bottom was hidden. Now, I actually like having the column there, it brings charactor to the space.

Ok this is not the best picture of my desk, it's alittle messy and i had to place that cardboard in front of my horrible outlets that stick out like a sore thumb... But back to the space. This one isn't as easy as the others and Im quilty of purchesing all of the materials, but you may have them at home. This desk is actually 2 unfinished, wooden counter stools that I bought at AC MOORE, I spraypainted them and a piece of lumber from home depot, black. the lumber is what was used for the top. I secured the piece of lumber to the stools with wood glue, and screws. screwing in from the bottom of the stool seats. the once known foot rests are now covered with bamboo placemats and simple black craft boxes which act as my drawers.
