I thought I'd show you bit's of my living room again. I painted a couple of walls and left the large wall behind the sofa white. I'll probably end up painting it a different shade of white next month.
I changed some things around and I still need to buy curtain rods and hang up some sheers, but you can get an idea of what it will look like when I'm done. I also need a big rug for in front of the sofa.
I re-arranged the living room, this was actually how I had it when we first moved in and hubby liked it better this way, so back it went.
I'm not sure if you can tell, but I painted the wall with all of the windows a light gray called "Sterling" by Laura Ashley. I had wanted to do it "Pearl Gray" from Martha Stewart, but it was no longer available.
I have some wonderful vintage chairs coming to go around the table in front of the fireplace. So they will add a pop of color to that space.
I also decided to keep my yellow dresser because it holds a lot of sentimental value, and I really can't paint it because it has beautiful hand painted flowers on the drawers and it would just ruin the piece.
The cabinet with the basket on top is my t.v. cabinet that I just painted. It was a bit too dark for my home in it's original finish, so I painted the inside a a combination of "Sterling" by Laura Ashley and Wedding Veil" by Benjamin Moore. The outside is painted "Bashful Blue" by Ben Moore.
I got the wonderful monogrammed grain sack pillow from the flea market a couple of weeks ago.
Sorry for the million photos.
On another note, hubby and I are completely hooked on the BBC show "Downton Abbey". I went last Friday to purchase the 1st season and had to run back Sunday night for the 2nd season. Now that I'm done watching both seasons I have no idea what I'm going to do. I just read that the 3rd season won't be out in the U.S until next year at this time. Really, that long?
Anyone else hooked like me? :)
Hope you all have a lovely week.
