Our Vintage Eclectic Living Room Tour
Here is proof that making a warm and comfortable home for your family can be fun and inspiring all while done on a budget. Most of these items were flea market, yard sale and Craigslist finds I was even able to make some no cost artwork with free printables, and of course, I made a few pillows. I’ve included the details and links to each project.
We started with a blank canvas of white walls and neutral carpet. The dark vertical blinds were the first thing to come down. We brought the camelback sofa, slipcovered wing chair, coffee table, stacking side tables, blue glass bottom light and a few pieces of artwork with us.
Now, the room is an eclectic mix of styles with some local vintage finds added in for fun.
The royal blue campaign end table was a Habitat ReStore purchase that I updated with paint and new hardware.
The sofa was upholstered with velvet curtains from Ikea.
The black leaping deer lamp was bought during a March Madness sale at an antique shop. It is one of my favorite pieces.
The Love the Journey artwork is a free printable from The 36th Avenue.
I will be sharing the ampersand artwork tutorial soon.
The small canvas was painted with Martha Stewart Crafts paint. I shared how I did it on Instagram.
I found the chairs at a yard sale for $5 each. The wood was cleaned, the legs were given a fresh coat of spray paint and the seats were recovered with black and white buffalo check.
The white chunky knit pillow was a Homegirl Shop purchase.
The red stripe pillow was sewn by me.
I found the framed embroidered flower pieces on one of my antiquing adventures in Maine. The curtains are from West Elm.
The colorful mushroom plate is a Nathalie Lete plate from Anthropologie. It was hung inside a gold frame.
The bow front server was a Cleveland Craigslist find. It is another one of my favorite pieces.
The paint by number was a kit I received for Mother’s Day. I enjoyed painting it. You can watch the video here.
The owl calendar was a free printable. I downloaded the month of our anniversary and framed it.
I made the OH LET THE ADVENTURE UNFOLD canvas with white paint and a thick tipped black paint pen.
The R artwork is a free printable from Shanty 2 Chic.
The brown plaid pillow was made with doilies.
Finally, these roses were bought for $4 at the grocery store. They lasted over a week and became more beautiful as each day passed. Never under estimate the power of cheap grocery store flowers.
