Living Room Update

30 Nov

Time to show the living room a little love! Along with my recent updates to our dining room (described here and here), I also made a few adjustments to our living room. It definitely did not look like much before:

Living Room Way Before

This was very shortly after we moved in – we did not have a lot of furniture, and the living room was a very sad place for a while. Here it is a little while later, getting just a little better:

Ok, not really much better at all, but at least two people can sit down. Luckily after our wedding we were able to combine a bunch of Crate & Barrel gift cards and return credits and buy an awesome couch – the only problem was it took for-ev-er to be delivered. Anyway, that was last Christmas and after that, I pretty much did nothing else to this room.

Until recently. I finally got around to putting up some curtains (with my wonderful parents’ help), and although it wasn’t my original plan, I also swapped rugs with the dining room and the new rug makes me very happy. So without further ado, here are the after photos.

Also in case you didn’t notice in the photo above, Sebastian really likes the new rug:

This rug must contain catnip

He was literally rolling around and army crawling across the rug, like it was a pool full of catnip and he was swimming in it. Such a weirdo.

Anyway, so that’s our living room. Of course, these photos were taken when my fall decorations were still up, so it looks decidedly more Christmas-y now (as seen in yesterday’s post). Also, I realize the curtains are hanging a few inches above the floor, which looks kind of weird. The curtains I bought weren’t quite long enough, so I plan to add a strip of colored fabric to the bottom of them at some point in the future.

Overall it’s quite an improvement though, amiright?

      Hahaha, a guy would notice that! Yes, I forgot to mention the TV got a serious upgrade a few months ago. Good eye, Joey!
