Today I had planned to share with y'all a side table for our living room. But I failed miserably... And I just didn't have time to fix it, photograph it, and write a post. I was SUPER discouraged and annoyed. I've been trying to get my living room ready for the final tour. But today I had to just step back and laugh. My living room looks like a joke, and this is cleaner than it was yesterday!!
So here is my super un-photogenic (not sure if that is a word or not...) living room tour.
Look at all the junk laying around.... Sad part is thats pretty average. Paint, puppy toys, shoes, computers and loads of TV wires. It all has a place to go but its the stuff I use most so it sits out more often than not.
I'm gonna clean it up one day figure out what to do with those wires and photograph the beauty of this room and add it to my super fab house tour. A girl can dream right!
Do y'all remember my post from last week of my revamped trunk coffee table? Well it is broken already. Tepe (our puppy) got a new toy and got too excited and knocked the table legs off.
She did that last night and I was trying to fix it today, but I still didn't get the right materials... I'm thinking I should plan these projects out a little better. Oops. And those pillows in the back, they pretty much stay piled up on one side of the sofa. They look awesome when they are placed the way they are supposed to be but our sofa is kinda narrow so we usually push most of the pillows to the side so we can cuddle up easier.
And this dumb chair. It was a hideous green, yellow and red plaid. Ok not hideous but just didn't go with the rest of the room. So I FINALLY ordered a slip cover. I was super pumped and ready to have a light chair that didn't totally clash with the room and show every single dog hair. Yep, most people want darker furniture but if I have lighter finishes its easier for me to keep lookin spiffy.
But as you can see the slip cover doesn't fit to good. I've got a few tricks I still need to try, like putting a rod in the cushion cracks to keep the fabric from pulling back out and getting all wrinkly. I have 30 days to decide if I like it. If I can get it to look less frumpy I think its a keeper.
Proof that I use the living room to do projects. Yep that is paint, paint brushes, tape, and a half finished painting. I love the light in the living room it makes everything beautiful so even though I have a craft room and a studio outside I still do most of my projects in here. I like to put my paintings up where I can look at them for a while. Sometimes when working on a project I get to close and can't really see the finished product. So this isn't done but it is in the process of deciding the next steps.
