How I am spending my Saturday

Do you work a five day work week? Or do you sometimes have to work through the weekend as well? A couple of Saturdays ago I worked all day on this house (you can see my post about it here). I arranged the new furniture and hung the artwork and it was a great improvement, but far from a finished room. 

The room is missing window treatments, pillows to add color, pattern and softness and it desperately needs lighting. 

I will be adding a fireplace screen, a window seat cushion, draperies and a few lamps besides some fun accessories (maybe even a cowhide rug if they let me!).

That is how I will be spending my Saturday. I am not complaining - how can I, it is one of my favorite things to do! How about you? What kind of fun are you up to today?

Your livingroom looks wonderful and the accessories you have chosen will be beautiful.
My sister just added an animal rug to her livingroom and now I'm wanting one.

Can't wait to see the finished room.

The fabric you chose is beautiful! Sounds like a fun saturday to me. :) I will be enjoying coffee with some girlfriends and then hopefully hitting the beach. Thankfully we were spared by Irene. : )

That last touch makes all the difference, great choices in accessories. I am making waffles for some college boys house guests. Then packing my son back to the dorms. Fun filled day.
