My Living room makeover inspiration- Enter the Passport to Style Sweepstakes from #WorldMarket_HGTV

Okay, so I have never really had the chance to makeover our living room, and I desperately want to.  I mean, I’ve painted the walls, and a few pieces of furniture and the lamps, but we’re still stuck with the couch and loveseat that my mom and dad gave me when I moved out on my own in 2005. And the couch and love seat are now about 19 years old. Still comfortable, but not attractive. Hence the slipcovers. The slip covers that drive me nuts, because about 10 minutes after putting them on my kids are already pulling them off, or trying to at least.  And underneath it’s not pretty folks. Not pretty at all!

So my plan right now is to start making over our living room, and hopefully end up with a new couch and loveseat… I’ve got painting all the walls on my to do list. And depending on the color I go with, I may or may not be painting the turquoise dresser. Gasp!

And I would love to add more to the walls. Hello big blank space. Let’s fill you up with pictures, or move the mirror there, and a dresser or something…

I pretty much spent an hour virtual shopping at World Market last night. I couldn’t help but want almost every item I saw.  And it doesn’t help my day dreaming knowing that World Market is going to give one lucky person a gift of a lifetime, because whoever wins the World Market Passport to Style Sweepstakes will win $10,000 to spend at World Market and a HGTV Celebrity Designer Consultation!  And even if you don’t win, you might be a runner up and 3 of those people will win $1,000 to spend at World Market!
THINGS TO KNOW:
Shopping in store at World Market is always fun for me and not just because I can find great items like the ones above on my wish list, it’s because World Market loves their customers and is always rewarding them with great deals, and offers. If you’re a frequent shopper at World Market like I am you need to sign up for their World Market Explorer Program. You can earn exclusive perks, like coupons and offers, previews, and lots more.

Fruit Baskets- Pinterest Inspiration

I am always pinning projects or ideas on Pinterest. I am always adding to my list of things to do, or things I want to do. But last week I decided I would actually try and do a project I had pinned.
This is the picture I re-pinned.  The baskets are from Willow House, and cost almost $35.

Using the baskets to store fruit was such a good idea. I loved it, but I didn’t love the price. So I went on the hunt to find me some baskets the I could hang and store fruit and veggies in. I found two baskets, that seemed perfect for the job, at Home Goods.  Each basket was $9.99. (I love Home Goods, could spend hours in there if I had the time.)
This is what I came up with.

I bought a few hooks from Lowe’s, drilled holes into my cabinet and hung the baskets.  I love them! Gives me plenty of extra room for fresh veggies or fruit that I need to store, without taking up any counter space.
Have you guys got any fun projects you’ve pinned and worked on? I would love to see them! And remember, not all projects have to be big undertakings. Sometimes completing something small and useful makes a huge difference.
