While organizing my pictures, I came across pictures of our living room from when we moved in, in 2008.
Looking back, I hate that yellow paint SO much and it makes me super happy that we’ve repainted it!
Normally, I walk downstairs and think about how much work we still have to do in here, but when I look back – its SO much better!
Our current “To Do” list:
We’re about to undergo a kitchen renovation, which will require new crown molding. Since its all one large room, this room will get new crown molding, too.
The ceiling fan looked great with the old furniture and yellow paint, but now this room needs something a lot more sleek.
The four small frames, end tables, crystal bead lamps, and most shelf decor is all borrowed from my office. All of it needs to be back in my office, stat, and I need a new coffee table/end tables, and really bold lamps. I also need to find some awesome artwork with much larger frames to go on the back wall.
The three windows need some sort of wooden plantation shutters, they need to be framed in, I need a large curtain rod going over all three of them, and I need to find some awesome curtains that won’t compete with the new, busy rug.
We originally bought 8″ taper legs for the sofa, stained them a rich brown, and put them on the couch. They were crazy sexy. And then one of them bent and snapped off (wahhh!) so we need to find a better way to attach them. Because really, when you put them side by side – there is NO comparison!
And before anyone asks:
Entertainment Center, Ikea
Coffee Table, Target
Rug, Home Goods
Pillows, TJ Maxx
Ceiling Fan, Lowes
And for the other side of the room:
Get rid of pretty much everything there now, add in these two chairs from Home Decorators, find an end table and lamp, and do a giant gallery wall of pictures. I think we’ll then need to do something in the far right corner (where Guinevere is currently chilling in her jumperoo), but I want to wait until I get the furniture in there, to see how much room we actually have to work with.
New Years Resolution: Complete this room before Guinevere’s first birthday party.
