Sources and Secrets: Mary's Room

Y'all have been so sweet with your compliments of Mary's room - thank you!
I've received a few questions and comments about the sources and how-to's. There's no way I could hold out on amazing readers like you, so here ya go!
Using the images as review (numbered clockwise from top left):
Ideas for Mary
  • Image 1: Side chairs from Overstock, reupholstered in Spicer Hvy Basket in Celery from LS Fabrics.
  • Image 2: Shield-back accent chairs from our local Habitat for Humanity Restore - spray painted in Kryon's Ivy Leaf. Seats recovered in a natural linen from Hobby Lobby.
  • Image 3: Settee from Craigslist - Houston.
  • Peacock blue velvet throw pillows from Target
  • Abstract landscape (as well as butterfly prints) from
  • Adjustable Arc Sconces from Pottery Barn
  • Side tables from Hobby Lobby - originally black, I repainted them with gold "Rub 'n Buff" paint
  • Image 4: Console table from Tuesday Morning, repainted in Sherwin Williams Liberty Blue
  • Image 5: Buffet lamps (love that pattern on the shades!) from JCPenney
  • Image 6: Strands of chunky turquoise from the Warrenton Antiques Festival (at only $15 a strand, they were a killer deal!) *Coffee table came from same place
Not visible in these pics, but also received questions on: the cowhide rug: Ebay. The nubby jute rug: West Elm. The large blue and white ginger jar: Homegoods. Pair of white Chinese garden stools: Big Lots.

Hope that helps!

It really looks great, Alison! I'm jealous you get to work on these projects! (Although I'm sure hard with two wee ones.) Are you or are you ever wanting to be professional?

I can't believe this gorgeous room was decorated using so many budget conscious sources! Thanks for sharing this.

I'm so impressed how you pulled together such an amazing room from mostly discount stores -- just goes to show you it's style and creativity and not a big budget that count!

This room looks amazing! Great style and it looks so inviting.

Ah, you are sweet for posting this. I can barely keep track of what I had for dinner last night, much less such detailed information. I think I see a designer in the making! One day you'll have to show us your design binder or workspace so we can picture you at work.
