Living Room Peek

I spent the weekend painting my living room and after four - yes, FOUR - coats, it's finally done. I'm not sharing all of the photos yet, but here is a little peek at the wall behind the sofa area. The color is Symphony Blue by Benjamin Moore.



I also thought it would be fun to share the design photos that have inspired my latest living room update. These were pulled from a file called "Make this happen in my house".  Do you have a dream file too?

Be sure to check back on Friday when I'll share LOTS of photos of the new room and treat you to a little "state of the house" tour. 

Craig's List Again

Last weekend, I picked up this little tufted bench to serve as our new coffee table!  This bench joins our existing fleet of Craig's List purchases for the living room, which include our sofa, our matching barrel back chairs, three end tables and a lamp.  (We're still way under 1,000 dollars for all the furniture in our living room!) The glass table that was previously in place was a hand-me-down that didn't quite fit the space.  It also posed a hazard for the little ones who inhabit our home.  Its a dark teal green in velvet with nail head trim - Pier One, I think.  Anyhow, here she is - pretty to look at and safe for little noggins.




For those of you keeping up with Charlie, here's the latest on our teeny little super guy!
