Happy Friday! As you know, we’ve been working on our living room, and while we aren’t completely done, I thought you may like to see a few pictures of our progress. Rather than purchasing all new furniture and starting from scratch, we decided to work with what we have and add a few things to jazz it up making it more “us”.
We accessorized the entry table a bit and added a much needed “shoe basket”. We aren’t a no shoe house but if there isn’t a place to catch shoes in this size house, people start tripping. And by people I mean me.
We also styled the shelves with random stuff we have. I’d like to eventually be a little more strategic with colors, and add some wedding photos, but this will do for now.
We added some much needed light with a couple of lamps and a new rug.
I also found some great pillows at HomeGoods. I will need to throw in a few festive throw pillows pretty soon!
There are still a few things we need to get like new curtains as well as something for over the sofa (I’m going back and forth on if I want to go with one big piece of art or a collection of art). We painted the walls Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore and absolutely love the color. The ceiling and trim still need to be painted as well as the inside of our front door. It’s currently stained wood but painting it the same white as the trim would really brighten up our entryway.
I’d also love to get rid of this guy…
We aren’t sure what we want to put there yet. It’s currently not operated by a switch so replacing it with a light fixture would involve some electrical work.
We are getting there, slowly but surely. Our living room is almost ready to house our first Christmas tree!!!
