The living room is done… for now. ;) It is finally to a point where I am 99% happy with it and can sit back and enjoy it instead of constantly seeing little and big things that I want to change.
As you can see I went with the stripe Olin Rug from Crate and Barrel. I loved several of the rugs from where to buy real generic viagrathat I asked you all what you would do, but after my hubby nixed a couple and I factored in cost I went with this striped one to hold me over until I find something that is absolutely perfect. I do like it a lot and it may stick around. It’s currently sitting on top of the old rug for padding since it’s just a flat weave. I do have my heart set on finding a thicker plusher rug someday. But I also realize we may have a bigger living room if/when we move someday so we would need something bigger. Oh the rug drama continues… :) seriously though why are rugs sooo hard for me to find.. at least within my budget constraints. ;)
I still have to fill that last frame above the seatee. Baby Norah is soon to be born, 3 weeks and counting, so I will put her picture in there. One of my ongoing projects is slowly collecting vintage letters to hang above those three frames. I also am still absolutely loving my new chair! I can’t believe I waited so long to get it covered. The fabric is by premier prints and I got it last fall from Fabric.com.
Luke’s little table area. I have another matching chair in the basement for Norah. But I also have been crushing on these chairs from The Land of Nod. So you never now what could happen If I spot a couple at our local outlet. (yes we are that lucky to have a crate and barrel and land of nod outlet nearby)
Luke’s radio flyer bike I thrifted so long ago fits perfectly under the table…. which is good since he has way to many ride on toys that don’t have a good place to be stored. :)
My globe collection… I still want to find a black globe. I think they are called galaxy globes. The land of Nod bins are still wonderful and holding up great.
The finished sofa! Yay! It’s a little slouchy, which I can tweak with making some of the seams smaller. no biggie, just a time issue. It is so much better looking than the beige ill fitting slipcover it had before. I do dream of a white sofa someday though. So maybe when our kids are bigger and we wouldn’t have to wash it every week….
So that’s that! I am happy it’s at a great point before Norah gets here as I hate having the itch to do things and no time or energy to do them. Which I know I won’t have much of either for awhile. :)
So now onto getting that back yard finished…..
Oh and I may have my new sewing space storage wall to share next week. It’s awesome! I just need to take pictures.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
