[That's my beautiful eBay Schumacher fabric on the right. I still love it several months later!]
Looking at the above picture made me remember and laugh... I
ranted posted, here, about how I couldn't find any end tables anywhere and I was so mad. Well, as you can see above, I found some. At Target. They're not perfect, but, hey, they work. I rub 'n buffed the pulls and just like that, I conquered my battle with end tables.
Our living room is [kind of] long and skinny; more so, it's narrow. What I'm trying to say is it's small. Furniture placement isn't the easiest when you're trying to maximize seating options. As a solution, we bought a chaise sofa. Long story short, we don't really like it. It's doesn't provide that much more lounging space and it's awkward when people are over--someone has to have their legs up. If we ever decide to finish a room in the basement, it'd be great to put down there. Until then, we're living with it...
And here are the panels I actually made... I never was 100% sure I'd be able to pull it off, but I did! Take a look: [I generally followed these directions.]
Have you noticed that I've painted the walls since the last pictures I shared? Probably not, but I wanted to point it out. I love the new color--Natural Choice [Sherwin Williams]. Another win/score for me, finally picking a paint color I actually like! It's a very soft, warm gray.
So that's the living room in its current phase. I have ideas as to where I want to go from here, but what happens next and, more importantly, when it happens have yet to be determined. After all, I've got a WEDDING to plan! I've got other things occupying my mind right now than the empty corner in the living room that so desperately needs to be filled. Well I did until now--best not to talk about it!
