I love a used book sale and am always on the lookout for books with colorful and interesting bindings to use in decorating.
I just picked these up at our local library for less than a dollar; a gray one and a pretty periwinkle one to go with my beach cottage decor and bottles. Love the titles, 'Acts of Faith' and 'Memories of Midnight'....
My bottles found a new home on the driftwood shelf above the t.v.
This next photo is before I switched the loveseat and t.v. It was a little cramped with the oversized teak coffee table.
And after...more leg room all around. For now, I've placed a beachy white chair in the corner and my books on the floor while searching for a bigger bookcase.
For the new slipcover, I used the reverse side of the fabric for the body and the 'right' side for the cushions. I'm really happy with it!
I learned a little trick of the trade when Mark L was here with Fifi last year for the photo shoot....Turn the lamps on even if it's sunny. Mark replaces each bulb with a very low wattage bulb.
Try it the next time you are styling and photographing. It makes all the difference in the world!
I hope you are enjoying your summer. Thanks so much for stopping by!
