This past weekend we stayed overnight with some friends that live in Minneapolis. They of course live near all sorts of wonderful stores that I don't have near me. I had never been to Marshall's before, which is very similar to TJ Maxx. I found these super cute paisley print pillows for only $15, which was a steal for two pillows! I am hoping to add more pillows so I don't have to divide them up between the couch and the love seat. For now, I added just the plain blue pillow to balance it out.
I also found this lamp for $40 at Marshalls. I had a hard time picking a lamp and it's not like I could easily bring it home, try it out and return it.
I needed something to put on the table with my lamp. I went on to The Graphics Fairy Blog and found these cute pictures to print out and put in frames.

I still am not sure of the pillows with my curtains, it's not bad but maybe drop cloth curtains like the ones featured here would be better? I can use the curtains in the living room in the dining room instead so they won't go to waste! ;)
I also redid the mantel and came up with this, (pretend you can't see the fan blade in the mirror):
