Here’s a sneak peek of the progress on our living room overhaul. It’s no where near “finished” so I won’t be showing you the whole thing right now… but I have sort of a list going on…

  1. We LOVE the new couch and love seat.
  2. We LOVE the new coffee table. Even though it’s darker wood than the one we saw in person in the store – it’s pretty fantastic.
  3. We are VERY pleased with the new TV console. It’s nice to have a piece of real-wood furniture there. It doesn’t “match” the coffee table, but my feeling is if we both like both pieces, and they look fine together to us, then we don’t need to worry about whether or not they objectively “match.”
  4. Furniture placement is going to change slightly from what it is at this very moment. Right now the room is pretty unbalanced, but I just had an epiphany that I think will solve that problem. I asked the hubs if he agreed and he told me he was kind of having the same thought. Score!
  5. There are a couple specific accessories I have my eye on…
  6. And a rug I have bookmarked…
  7. And a couple things I need to find but haven’t found yet…
  8. And a couple things already here that asked me to spray paint them…
  9. And a photograph dying for me to get it printed up huge and frame it…
  10. But those things all cost money, so we’ll see what happens first, and when the room is looking a little more “finished” (even if it’s not ALL the way finished) I will share more pictures with you.

PS Do you like the new vase? And the pretty pretty flowers are from a house near ours that has been abandoned (I guess maybe it’s a foreclosure or something?) and the yard is completely overgrown, but the garden still has lovely flowers in it. Next time I go flower-picking I need to wear gloves though – the sap made my hands itch for hours!

  1. Emily: I LOVE it, and I super duper love the vase and flowers…. Question, if you get this message before you head over here tomorrow, can you pick me a couple of those flowers? 🙂 I have a very naked vase that is begging to be filled!
