New Bench!

While I was in Washington last week, my sister and I crammed in some delightful visits to the local antique and vintage stores.  Oh, it was so much fun...I have missed it.

Anyway, I found this perfect overstuffed bench to use as the living room ottoman.  It came from one of the vintage stores and was redone very well with good reinforcement and sturdy fabric so it can handle kids.
This beauty fit great in the u-haul,and along with my other finds, I am a happy camper!

If you remember, I re-did the big coffee table last summer, but it's just too big for the room.  

We desperately needed more floor space in the living room, so the bench is a great change from the coffee table.  
 For the sofa, I got 2 pillow slipcovers from an Etsy seller.  Pillow slipcovers are a really affordable way to change your room up, and I love supporting small businesses.
I also folded up some fabric to use as a runner on my sewing table.  The fun print some great springtime color.  

I would have put a vase or bowl on there too, but Lydia keeps pulling it down, so it would be a safety issue at this point, haha.

The living room has been rearranged, and I'm sure it will probably stay like this for...oh, 2 weeks.  I'm a chronic re-arranger. (click HERE for the before)

There are a couple more items I brought back with me that I'm having so much fun finding places for.  I'll share those soon.  


While I was going through my camera, I found these pictures of an Oklahoma sunset outside of our apartment.
