Happy Monday, everyone!
My living room is slowly taking shape and becoming all I dreamed it to be back when it looked like this.
Whew... I hadn't looked at these photos in a LONG time. Yes, this is how the house looked when we moved in! That's what you get when you buy a foreclosure, folks!
So, then we lived with furniture that didn't work well for the room for over a year.
We had a love/hate relationship with our sectional. LOVED the feel and comfort and the fact that the hubby and I could BOTH stretch out and lay down on it. HATED the worn down torn up backside and the awkward layout it created for the room. Okay, let's be real - that was only something I hated. Hubby couldn't have cared less. :)
Then we had the wall issues... the couch wasn't a true "L" shape so it didn't fit into the corner which left an awkward space in the back. I pulled the couch off the walls to bring it into the middle of the room. I could never figure out just want to do with the blank walls. I can't find pictures of the room with my shutters on the wall (which I hung up to break up the blankness).
couch hunt & my score on Craigslist.
I thought I'd give you a peek at what the room is looking like now so you can see there truly has been some progress made! YAY!
Oh and the table she's standing on is our new coffee table we built! I'll tell you more about that in a later post.
What about y'all? Any of you living with a room that is a work in progress? After a year and a half ours is finally coming together!
