Hating Martha, Loving Janel

Hello! Janel here from Hating Martha!
It is such an honor and privilege to be here.
Roeshel is the coolest. And her blog is pretty great too.
Oh wait…here is a picture of me. So you can picture me talking.

Yep, picture that while I share.

Okay, recently I shared about my Living Room’s jazzy new makeover.
I wanted to be sure to share it with Roeshel’s readers.
See, Roeshel has great style. And sometimes, sometimes when I
am in a decorating pickle I sneak on to her blog and look at her
house. Then copy it. Ha!! Don’t tell her.

See if you can see some hints of Roeshel in these pictures (the after ones…doh!)
I Spy Roeshel …

That coffee table I made from 2 wood pallets and a couple large tiles.
I “white washed” it with white spray paint for a beach look.

That area rug I made from 10 small rag rugs. It cost a grand total of $20.00. Crazy right!
The slipcovers I splurged on. I chose white for the sofa because my kids love to snuggle with the animals. I wanted to be able to bleach it if necessary.
All the pillow were made without sewing. Safety pins, beads, and fabric.

The corner gallery wall and nautical dresser were past projects.

Wooden pallet art, DIY octopus table, and painted IKEA chair are all past projects used for this makeover.

And my favorite…a buffet that was a lost cause, which I repainted.
I added vintage directions as wall art and some of my favorite pieces from my home.

Did you see Roeshel’s inspiration? Well, I hope so. Or I just paid her a terrible insult.
If you don’t like the new redo…Roeshel has no inspiration whatsoever!
I don’t know what you are talking about?

I used shades of cream, white, and grey whenever I was in doubt.
And, I used blue as the central accent color…in all shades.
Natural elements were used as much as possible for accessories.
I tried to copy Roeshel’s wonderful way of keeping history and style married together.
She does a great job of making a space feel “lived in” even if it was just, just decorated.

Well, if you liked what you saw stop by Hating Martha and say hi!
If you don’t like what you saw…hmmm…yeah, you can still stop by!
