I've started the slow process of finding things to decorate my living room, now that I have a presentable looking couch. It's always fun to find something that 1. looks alright and 2. has some sort of "meaning". I'm a fisherman's daughter who spent evenings in high school doing laundry after-hours at a lobster processing plant, and I spent a month down on the floor weighing lobsters for extra cash after my first year of college (worst job ever, if you were wondering). So, you know, I "earned" the right to have this weird ugly lobster hanging on my wall. And it happens to match my couch perfectly.
Those pillows though... don't match at ALL. They're leftovers from my old futon. I'm toying with the idea of an orange/brown/turquoise colour scheme. I've had my eye on pillows like these
And I want to give a similar treatment to this... thing.
It's probably the most versatile piece of furniture I own. It works as a thing to set my laptop on when I watch 1 Girl 5 Gays, or extra seating, or a table or a foot stool or a cat perch... anything you can think of. But that fabric is NOT my style, and it's all stained because I also used to use is as a nail painting station. Button tufted turquoise velvet would look alright, right? With a skirt for added foofiness? I'm into it. And I promise not to paint my nails on it...
