Hello everyone! I am so glad to be back to my normal hours this week. I have missed all of you! I wanted to show you what I have been working on this weekend. Several weeks ago, we bought two new recliners. They look like distressed leather, but are really cloth. I wanted to restyle my living room to give them a farmhouse setting.
Our house has a family room, too, and that is the larger room where our kids and company hangs out. This room, though, is where my hubby and I spend most of our time. It's really a glorified hallway since it has five doorways and two large windows. It makes arranging things very challenging. I don't know why they didn't think of that when they were building this house in 1920!
The lamp in this photo was stark white with a girly shade and just didn't work. I painted it green and gave it a coat of dark wax. A burlap looking shade was just the thing it needed.
I found the barn oil painting at a yard sale last summer and finally hung it on these old shutters.
I think things are finally coming together. I had a little sliver of wall space between two doorways and no furniture could be put there, so I hung a quilt.
I really want to paint and distress our TV cabinet. It's on the list of projects! I bought a cow poster at the auction several years ago and had it framed. It is really large and the framing was a bit pricey, but I love it! I just called it my Christmas gift that year.
Well, that's how the living room looks right now.
I have a little bit yet to do, but I am loving the farmhouse vibe!
The end table in living room has a very unique story and I'll share that next time. Hope you'll tune in then! Have a wonderful start to the week!
