So I've been struggling with my living room, as many of you know. I've vented about it to you all more than once! Every time I walked in my apt, something bothered me but I couldn't put my finger on it for the longest time. I finally had an ah ha moment when I realized that I needed more depth in the corner next to my window to balance out the room. I also needed a coffee table! So welcome to house tour 2.1- redone and remixed. This is what I started with.
On the coffee table hunt- I saw these on High Heeled Foot in the Door. Loved the white lacquer and thought two would make a fun alternative to a coffee table but had no idea where they were. Then a reader of High Heeled found some at TJMaxx- so off I went.
And voila- they were there! I snagged two (one in the turquoise color below, and a black one) planning to spray paint them.
So we were on the way.
Then my hubby took me to Ikea- yay! I stumbled upon a grey linen chaise lounge and realized it was perfect for my room. I also scooped up a black and white throw, some peacock blue curtains, and a $20 chair. So drum roll... here it is now!
Its so much cozier with that chaise- that Luke has claimed. I have only sat in it once since we got it! I had orginally thought to paint the coffee tables black lacquer but at the advice of my boss- now they are going to be white lacquer! So pumped.
I am thinking about doing a black and white greek key band on the curtains. Thoughts? You like? I'll post pictures after I paint the bamboo tables, I promise.
