Evan and I put A LOT of work into our house. It wasn't a fixer upper by any means, but we did a lot of work because we're on such a tight tight budget. For instance, Evan built quite a few things throughout the house, I painted all the walls, and I also painted a lot of the artwork in the master bedroom and in the dining room.
Anyway, today is "show us your livingroom," so here we go!
The day we moved in!
No walls were painted and the place was pretty bare, but I had lots of plans!
Another "before" shot.
So, a month after we moved in, this is what the house looked like!
I wanted a single wall painted green and was pretty content with it.
But, I wasn't in love with it...
But, for some reason...I still wasn't pleased.
Do you see how it's just not very cohesive looking?
So, one evening we were sitting on the couch watching TV and I told Evan I wasn't pleased. He looked at me with that "oh crap" look. I didn't like it! So, before we knew it...ALL the walls had been painted. Hee hee...oops!
(what it looks like today)
This is our livingroom and BY FAR the room where I spend the most amount of time.
The coffee table was made by my Daddy some 30 years ago.
The tables I bought at Bombay when they were going out of business...$25 a piece!
The couches we got at Ashley furniture.
I included this picture because I love that statue on top of the cabinets.
Isn't it romantic and loving?
This was Evan's Christmas gift to me before we got married.
It's a set of our favorite engagement photos.
Do you see that little basket on the floor?
I LOVE having blankets in a livingroom.
So many people don't do that, but it makes things SO cozy.
Evan and I lay under the covers snuggling and cuddling on the couch all the time.
Like my fall decorations on our coffee table?
I LOVE the cover of this Martha Stewart magazine.
Isn't it beautiful?
Well, there ya have it! Our living room! It took a lot of time and a lot of work, but I LOVE it now. This is our first home together and whenever we move (whether that's in a year or in six years or even more), it'll always have such a special place in my heart.
Sorry, one more shameful plug...remember to vote for Law Mama HERE so I can host the Monday Minute! Voting is over Sunday at noon!
Everybody have a fabulous fall weekend!
