The Blue Room



I call this the "Blue Room", but really it's just a little sitting area off the main open plan living area. I wanted to make it prettier before our visitors arrived to stay over Christmas. So I replaced the old daggy futon cushion with some new foam, which I covered in this lovely coordinating fabric. I was really pleased to find it, as a lot of the fabrics I had my eye on for the job were far too expensive, and I didn't expect to find anything I liked this much at Spotlight!
The other happy find was some blue paint in the clearance pile at Bunnings. Someone's reject is another's perfect shade of blue. So I painted an old coffee table and a couple of frames and so the sitting area became 'The Blue Room' .
I also recovered the cushions on the cane setting in the adjacent outdoor area. I think my husband thinks I'm a bit obsessed with this fabric Having a bit more left, I'm looking aound thinking about what else I can cover in it!
