Another Long Day (OR…Mostly Decorated Living Room)

Friday, June 12, 2009

My back and neck and feet are really sore.

But the living room is, for the most part, done.  The only thing that we really need to do is order the TV stand, put CDs in the CD holder, and place a few more decorative items/artwork strategically around the room.

We were going at it from 9 am this morning (which is when Madeline felt the need to wake us up–I think I’ve come to the conclusion that she likes having company).  We finished about 4 pm.  So it really was a long day of working.  Actually, when Kimm and I thought about it, we’ve been working like crazy on this room since last week when we did the painting.

This home improvement stuff is hard work.

But, oh, SO REWARDING.  I just love looking around our living room.  It just looks so nice!

Here is a 360 degree tour…


Notice the nice DVD rack (it took us about an hour to try to figure out how we were going to arrange all the dvds–we are such perfectionists…lol!)


Close up of our awesome sunburst mirror (so 50s!), and the cute little elephant tea light holder (which has teal that picks up on the teal of the curtains), plus our cool Asian-looking bowls…love this corner…


The other corner…see everyone is in their place…Kimm watching the final hockey game, and the cats on the chair and ottoman 🙂


The desk is now on the other side of the room…


Close up of the desk…we want to get a smaller lamp on it, and also those cds will eventually be in the cd holder 🙂


The cd holder corner…minus the cds (!)–those still have to be brought up from the basement (SIX boxes worth!)–the holder is supposed to hold 727 cds, so we shall see since Kimm has close to that number of cs–we pretty much filled the dvd holder so we will have to find more storage solutions in the future…


Close up of the cd holder…with our yellow vase and two new pictures on top (TOTAL bargain at Target–$2.98 each!)

So there you have it!  Hope you enjoyed the tour.

Now of course…we are already thinking of our next project…we are nerds right!  It will be the kitchen, which will be a sunflower yellow, and I also want to repaint the cabinets the color all the trim work has been thus far.  So that is ANOTHER huge task.  But I’m not going to think about it right now.  It will all happen in good time.  For now I will simply enjoy the living room!
