Hey guys! Sorry I have been such a bad blogger lately, we have been so busy! We installed a doggy door a few weeks ago and found out that we have termites.. GRRRR. So, we had some companies come out and we got some quotes and picked one. We had to move everything in our garage to the center, mind you we still didn't have all of our stuff inside that needed to come in so that all got shoved everywhere inside. They are here right now, they have been drilling holes into the base of the house for two hours. No fun!! Anyways, enough with all of that. I wanted to share with you our main living room, this is where we spend most of our time. I would say that this is 90 percent finished, so I thought I would share.
Here is a before picture of what this room used to look like before.
Here is what it looks like now.
Here is where my baker's rack sits that I showed you a few weeks ago. I have had these sticks for a long time, they were in a glass vase but one morning we woke up and I came downstairs to the vase tipped over and shattered everywhere. Truth is I never really liked the glass but just never changed it. So I headed to Ross and picked up this one for 14.99! Yay! Love it!
Ofcourse, I was drawn to the fleur de lis I also liked that it's metal so if it tips over again for some odd reason it wont break.
I bought this picture last year and never really fell in love with it, but when I tried to go exchange it at Kirkland's it was on clearance for 25 dollars so that's all they would give me. So I decided to keep it and now I really like it in this room.
I pulled some of the green from the picture out and painted this accent wall along the fireplace. The color is from Valspar called Churchill Hotel Olive. I really like the color, I think I am going to paint my laundry room this color.
I love fleur de lis! :)
I love my big clock it looks so pretty on this fireplace, don't mind Walter this is his favorite spot.
I purchase this floral arrangement from Kristen last year, it looks so pretty on the fireplace too.
These fireplace tools were my husband's great grandma's.
You will never guess what I did with these curtains. I had two standard panels from Target that I bought a few years ago that I had in my room. So all I did was cut them up the middle and hemmed the raw edge with the glue gun and wala! I now have 4 panels for the price of two.
Here's a close up of the panels, below is Jackson's toy box. I bought this storage ottoman from Target it is functional and pretty!
Love these feather down pillows from Ross. They have the best deals on pillows!
My in laws gave us this coffee table that I cannot decide if I want to paint, stain or spray with oil rubbed bronze spray paint. I have seen this done on wood and it looks so pretty! I will be figuring that out soon. I am not a big fan of light wood.
Well that's all for today guys. I hope you enjoyed our living room. I will be back next week.
Have a great weekend!!
