So I've been spending a lot of time working on the living room over the holidays. I wanted to freshen everything up a bit.
I finally got the Ikea sectional I have been wanting. I love it! It is very comfortable, and it works great with the family. I also brought the coffee table down from the attic. I think we are past the using it as a dance floor stage. I love the white curtains, always have, they will stay forever I think.
The grey hutch is getting ready to move. All the TV stuff on top is really not working.
The TV shelf is also leaving today.. I found a new cabinet on Craig's List. I will show you later. Pretty sure I am going to paint it. Trying chalk paint for the first time. A whole project for another post.
The new rug.
I still love my ghost lights. I still need to take off the Christmas rosemary wreaths.
My little fig tree. I love him. I am still figuring out how to take care of him. Right now he gets a shower every Monday and seems to really like it. He has one new leaf. Yay! I can't wait for him to grow up!
My coat rack is still great. It looks great and functions great. The basket is full of Playmobile. I like having pretty storage.
I thought about moving the mirror but it reflects to much light that I think I'll leave it. There really is not much light in this room and I need to take full advantage of what I have.
I love my ladder. Not so much love for the speakers. I think I'm going to try making a cool box around them or something. Maybe something like this:
My daughter and her boyfriend made me the box for the coffee table. I painted it dark grey and then rubbed it with dark brown Briwax. Great look. I would really like to fill it with succulants.
And last but definitely not least are the new pillow covers purchased from H & M Home. I love their site and their prices. I also love the quality. The color I chose was dark grey. When I opened the packaging it looked really black and I thought I would have to return it, but once I got it on the couch it looks great. It is very dark grey though. The tan pillow cover is Ikea.
Hope you had a great Christmas and Happy New Year.
