I hinted at my efforts to spiff up my living room a little bit a few posts ago. When I came home from doing some shopping on Saturday, I found Casey putting the cut-off legs back on my repurposed coffee table–what a guy 🙂 A few months ago, this is as far as I’d gotten with the living room:
Here’s what I have now!
And, a view without the kid stuff in the corner, haha:
This little table was given to us when we first got married and was our dining table when we lived in Georgia, where I painted it in our living room (while Casey was in Iraq), while watching The Princess Diaries over and over 🙂 Now that we have a family it seems sooooo tiny to be a dining table!! Anyway, I’m so glad we kept it, since with shorter legs, it makes a perfect, super-sturdy coffee table. Next I’m going to try to make that kids’ corner more attractive. I saw some really cute bins at Hobby Lobby, so I’m waiting for those to go on sale. I’m working on some fun artwork too–I would really like to get some vintage book covers scanned and then frame them. Like this one:
Any ideas on how to do that and how much it might cost??? Someday maybe that kids corner will be a reading corner or something, but for now, it’s full of toys and that’s okay by me–I have little kids, so why would I try to make my house look like I don’t, huh?????
