Recently, we gave our house a whole new look with a by changing the wall color throughout our home. What a difference a fresh coat of paint can make. What was once dark green is now light, bright and airy grey, and I am in love.
Before I go on, I feel that I must defend my original choice of the dark green that I came to basically hate. When we moved in, the house had boring beige builder’s paint. It took us years to finally get around to painting it, and when I did I wanted color. I looked grey back then, but I was so focused on change I looked too dark and didn’t like it. So the walls became dark green. I welcomed the change, and loved it for about a year. Then slowly over the next 5 years, I came to hate it.
But it is gone, and fresh light has been breathed into my home. Ahhh…
Of course now I face a new problem. Fresh paint seems to emphasize how old and sad-looking our couch has become. (The poor cushions have lost their shape!) And when I move the area rug for painting, I realized how stained the backside is (ick!). What was just new paint has turned into a desire for a new couch, new rug and new curtains. Looks like the makeover isn’t done yet. Isn’t that always the way!
While I build up my budget for the big items, I gave our space an inexpensive fall refresh with new pillows and accessories from Better Homes and Gardens for Walmart.
If you aren’t familiar with pillows made by Better Homes and Gardens for Walmart, I am telling you — go check them out. Most stores carry a few, but the online selection is huge! Tons of colors and styles, and they aren’t old-dated styles either. Current trends like chevron, gold foil and even pom poms.
Actually the hardest part is deciding which ones to get. My absolute favorite pillow is this gold foil heart. I love it. I paired it with the gold foil print blanket for a little corner of bling just for mom. Picture me snuggled up in this very spot with my laptop because this is my spot.
This tray is perfect for display. Filled with small pumpkins and pinecones you can see everything and there is nothing to tip over.
There’s one more fall detail that you can’t see in my pictures. You can’t smell your screen, but those aren’t just pinecones. They are Better Homes and Gardens for Walmart pinecones — they are scented with cinnamon. So my whole house smells like cinnamon. The perfect fall flavor.
Here are the Better Homes and Gardens for Walmart items included in this post:
- Gold Foil Heart Pillow
- Live Laugh Love Pillow
- Grey Pillow with Pom Poms
- Orange Swirl Pillow
- Woven Pillow
- Turkish Medallion Gold Foil Throw ***
- Wire Tray
- Cinnamon Scented Pinecones (in store only)
Note – the image shown for the Turkish Medallion Throw is not the throw I have, but when I scanned the bar code that is the item that came up. I think the image is incorrect because the title and barcode match. But I bought mine in store, so I am not 100% sure.
