Living Room Project

This weekend we took on a spur of the moment project.  I have been bugging Jeremy about getting new furniture for a while.  Our couches were pretty old and had a few holes in them.  Whenever we have people over I feel a need to clean the entire house so we can take people on tours and show them that the rooms we have remodeled actually look great.  I just felt like our living room space wasn't a very welcoming space for guests and to be honest, I was pretty embarrassed by it.
The living room "before"
There wasn't a huge budget for furniture so it was hard finding something we were both happy with that we could actually afford.  On a trip to World Market to get a bottle of wine for my dad's birthday we came across the furniture for us.  We literally paid half the amount at World Market compared to the Ikea set we were originally looking at.  After painting one wall and buying a couple of house plants, all we did was place the new furniture and move around some of the old furniture and artwork.  I'm so excited by the results.  Check it out...
I'm so excited to have guests come to visit now!

  9. It's about time Jeremy gave in! It looks so cute and I love the new way you arranged the room...so cozy! Our old table and chairs were from World Market and we loved them...they have super cute stuff for really good prices but I never think to go there.

  10. Looks fab! I'm having fun reading your blog and discovering how very alike we seem to be: designers, live in Portland, the momma posts, same middle names and we've both decorated our living rooms in a Portland theme! :)
