Living Room & Chair Update

Did everyone get some sweet stuff from their sweeties yesterday? I got the new Breaking Dawn movie and a sweet card from mine. Can’t wait to watch the movie!

I thought I would share some pictures from our living room when it was primed for the showing.

Here’s the view from the dining room-


(p.s.- it no longer looks like this)

Couch- Ditto upscale resale

White bookshelves- Free from Grandma DeWitt

Basket- Clearance sale from Pier 1

Curtains and Rods- Ikea

Flowered Chair- $5 garage sale find

TV Stand & End Table- Wal-Mart


Espresso bookshelf- Meijer? I don’t remember.

I love my flowered chair. But I’m not sure if I’m going to keep it like this or recover it or slipcover it. It does look a little different than it did.


This chair had a skirt around the bottom. (yes, this is me holding it up for the picture because I forgot to get a picture before I started).

So I just started ripping it off because it was covering some beautiful legs. 043

In this picture it still had the cording stapled on. My tools consisted of a hammer, flat-head screwdriver and some pliers. I just worked my way around pulling out all the staples.

I know I said chair update….some may not consider this chair “updated” per se….but it’s a huge improvement to me.

Thanks for looking!

Come back tomorrow for Bathroom pictures and a little house news.
