As I've stated probably way too many times before, our house is a major work in progress. As I've also said before, I created this blog not only to share our life with our families that live far away, but to document our first-time-home-owning experience. SO, today I've decided to show you our living room because I'm pretty sure ya'll haven't gotten an update in it in a while. Here are some of the things that have changed in the living room in the last month or so:
-new fireplace surround
-new throw pillows
-new coffee table
So....lots of "new". BUT, I still have a ton to do....which includes but is not limited to:
-putting a HUGE sunburst mirror above the fireplace
-hanging a bunch of frames with wedding pictures above dresser area
-Get a different lamp...?
-accessorizing everything (which is a lot)
Ok, so it doesn't sound like that much, but it is!
Here is a picture of our living room last summer:
I actually like all of the stuff in it, but I was kind of over it.
And here it is NOW: (remember I'm not done yet!)
LAST SUMMER (much more accessorized):
I love my new pillows! I was going to just make some, but then fate intervined and I came across these PERFECT pillows at TJMaxx for just $16 each! I just about freaked out, they are exactly what I was envisioning!
I cannot for the life of me make the window show up better.....there's a way to do it, I just haven't figured it out.
Oh yeah, we are getting the couches cleaned this Friday....I'm so excited!
Yay living room! I'll post more updates as they occur :).
P.S. Go to The Shabby Nest and Between Naps on the Porch link parties to see other things! I decided to link my blog to them too :).
