Yesterday as soon as the tools were out of our living room, I headed out to gather cleaning supplies and came home to start my work - cleaning, organizing, rearranging. This is a start.
Once you have shiny new floors, other things start to look a bit worn. These couches are old. And inherited at least four different times by four different college students. They stuck with us. We like their lines and simplicity, but I hate the pleather (it's sticky). My first effort is the bludot swap meet. I think my quilt would look very nice on the side of that piece...I'm sure a similar one would look great at their offices too! Please pick me!!
The coffee table was the husband's grandma's and I stripped and re-finished it. I think it needs another look - a different color stain? Paint?
Recliner is from IKEA.
Rug is from Terrget (Kristen Wiig - you are a tresure).
Popcorn is yummy.
The wall behind everything needs some work too - either a shelf or some large artwork propped up on the floor.
Finally - wood is hickory and was a middle ground for the husband and I. He won with the skinny strips, but I kindof like them (don't tell).
So that is a sneak peak at our still in-progress project.
