Living Room Reveal

We have been working away at making our living room feel less like a mix of unmatched furniture and more like a comfy and welcoming place to relax. While we have many rooms that we plan to renovate, the living room was the one that I picked as a MUST DO before the baby arrives. Now that it is nearly there (a few elements will have to wait until after baby) we can focus on Eden’s room. In case you forgot…here are a few photos from when we moved in…

AFTER
(That table you see above is not staying, it was set up for a party. In its place will be a future project we have in store)
We finally had a sunny day so I could get some pictures of the space. This also happened on the day of the party so you get a sneak peak of party decorations as well. Here are the things we have done in this space: bought a new couch, chair, chandelier, rug, and some accessories. We pulled up the carpet to reveal the beautiful dark hardwoods that were living below. We painted the walls (twice). Put up curtains. Added new tile to the fireplace hearth. We did a lot of other small things that cannot necessarily be seen, but adds to the efficiency of our house. One of these changes was replacing the weather stripping around our front door. Let me tell you, it is a simple change, but really saves on energy usage.
We are not done with this room, but we are very close. We still want to paint the trim a bright glossy white, repaint the fireplace in that same bright white, add bamboo blinds to the windows, and make a desk/entry table for the back wall. We also need to purchase a few more pillows as well as two ottomans to replace the coffee table for a safe place for Eden to play as well as a place to put all of her toys. We will update more as more changes take place. Now off to work on our little girl’s room…

  2. Hi Lindsay! The capiz chandelier is actually from Cost Plus World Market. It was $70 which seemed to be one of the best prices we could find. We LOVE it! By the way, I have been loving your laundry room changes and adore the cork floor! What a great find! Thanks for stopping by and good luck with the rest of your laundry room. -Mallory
