Loving Your Living Room Suggestions and Other Stuff

Saturday, November 5, 2011

I just want to thank those of you who commented on my living room dilemma post with various suggestions for furniture layout. You guys rock!!! I'm going to do a more detailed post with actual pictures and dimensions of the room very soon but we still have furniture everywhere 'cause of painting. So save up your ideas because I sure do love hearing them all.

Today we woke up early, hopped in the car (all bundled up), stopped at the drive-though for some coffee, and took the pups on a nice, long hike on a local trail. The sun was coming up and the leaves were all frosty and pretty-like. We are so not morning people so we're ultra proud of ourselves that we were out of the house at 8:00 a.m. this morning.

Alex is psyching himself up to work on the basement today. We decided to take out another wall in the basement and so we will end up with an extra little nook to decorate and furnish. We'll need lots of storage down there so I chose this as my inspiration picture:

Except in the middle section under the picture we'd try to add a built-in desk. Sort of like this:

I'm trying not to get too excited since the basement still looks like a warzone but Alex is almost at the stage where he can start insulating and putting walls back up. Can't wait for that let me tell you.

My mission today is to get a bunch of paint touch-ups done on the main floor before I lose my painting mojo. I ended up having almost a gallon of extra paint so I threw up a coat of that light grey in the kitchen, too. The walls in there still hadn't been painted since we moved in (shame on me, I know). I did one coat the other day and I'm going to finish up the second coat as soon as I hit publish on this post. No pictures of the kitchen though because it is still Hideous with a capital H. Well, we'll see. ;)

I'll be back tomorrow with some other random stuff just because. Have a great weekend!!!


  1. I love that wall inspiration. Adding a desk is a great idea. I miss having a basement. I had so much storage down there!

  2. Pretty! I could never show my kitchen either!
