~***Living Room Part-2***~

Hey! I wanted to share with you the second part of the Living Room. If you missed my last post, I showed you part one.  Join me and I will take you on a tour. 

***Living Room- Part 2***

As you take a step down to enter into the living room you first see the piano wall. The piano was actually my husband's great grandma's. My mother in law has had it since she passed away and when they moved they weren't going to have room for it, so it stayed here. I think it is so pretty!


To the right of the piano wall I have a pub table that we got when we bought the couches 7 years ago, the couches and the table were the first things my husband and I bought when we first moved in together.


 A few months ago I recovered the chairs with left over fabric I had from the curtains, they used to be a white/tan microfiber and over the years they have gotten dirty, so they definitely needed a new life.


I kept the table simple. I added a floral arrangement that Kristen made me a few years ago, along with a zebra print place mat and two place settings with my new dinnerware I got for Christmas. They are Chris Madden Corvella collection from JCP.


Here is a closer look at the piano wall arrangement. I added two Tuscan pictures that I got from Ross a few years ago, two mosaic candle sconces also from Ross and the iron embellishment above the pictures is actually a re purposed item. A few years ago I bought a stocking holder from Kirkland's and not this past Christmas, but the one before Jackson knocked it over and it broke, so I decided to keep the top and use it as a topper.


To the top of the piano I added a tray with a fleur de lis candlestick, fleur de lis plate, a finial and two orbs.


Here is a closer look at the whole vignette on the top of the piano. 


A few months back I showed you this desk I painted. This used to be where the piano is at.  Everything pretty much stayed the same on the desk.


 Close up of the shelves.



 Behind the couch I placed this console table that I also painted black a few months ago.  I added two topiaries from Ross, two picture frames, a rooster arrangement, a hanging fleur de lis and a book box and finial.


Here is a close up of the vignette in the middle.I purchase the urn from Shenita a month or so ago and decided to add a rooster and greenery to it.


Well that's it for today guys! I will be back in a few days to show you the Kitchen! 

Have a great day!!


I will be joining Kristen for Share your creations
