My Projects, My Living Room

Yesterday I showed you how I added a couple of key pieces to our main living space, but today I’m showing you the entire room and how I incorporated some of my favorite furniture transformations I’ve completed in the past year.

I love that you can see my little treasures under the glass… my grandpa’s old pipe, my father-in-law’s dog tags, and a collection of crosses passed down from our great grandparents.

    love the pieces in your living room–mine is beige at this point–basically the whole thing. this was great for some ideas for end tables and display items.

    I love the style of the red chair, especially the wooden legs. How about an upholstery redo? Wow, the room is great. And I didn’t know Walmart carried all the cool stuff.

      Thanks Toni, Walmart is actually pretty fantastic these days! I asked my friends that does reupholstery about the chair and she said it wasn’t really worth recovering :( I’ll have to find a new home for it, or maybe sell it on Craigslist!
