I'm thinking maybe I shouldn't have enlarged these photos! As I've mentioned before, our house was built in 1962. And I don't think the kitchen or bathroom have been changed since. Unfortunately we can't do a total overhaul right now, but I'm ready to work on a room that won't take quite so much. So I'm starting with the living room. These pictures were taken right after we got back from vacation, so this was in the midst of putting Christmas stuff away, trying to find homes for new toys and my annual January "spring cleaning". We really are not slobs, I promise!
Everything is beige and green. We need color on the walls!
So far I've managed to change out our coffee table and end table, but this ugly desk remains. I really hope to find a new, smaller desk for this space.
On top of the tv... blah. But the tv is angled in the corner, so I can't lean anything against the wall.
My embroidery hoops need updating, too. And new curtains. I'm undecided on painting that cedar chest.
I've already started adding photos to this wall. I've wanted to do a gallery wall for awhile, but was afraid to start. I decided one day to just do it. And that damn gold light. Yuck.
Those couches. Ugh. They are comfy, but I do not like the green at all. I need slipcovers!
This shelf sits above that green couch.
Need to do something with those hands, too. And a new lamp and shade.
I can't wait to work on this room!
