This week's theme is the Living Room, so here's a peek at mine!
I loathe corner fireplaces (unless you have a snazzy flatscreen mounted above, which we obviously do not). Corner fireplaces make it so frustrating to arrange a room around, especially a room with two very short walls and 2 doors. I've probably tried a bajillion (yes, a bajillion) different ways to arrange, and just gave up. The new coffee table did help make the space feel more spacious. I just remember the Nester's motto: It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful.
These are a few of my favorite things...
- the pottery pieces we've collected and received as gifts :-) especially our McCarty lamp...i love that thing. Is it bad to love a lamp?
- my drapes. the first drapes/curtains i've ever bought/purchased. My mom and I always sew them. but these beauties were on $8 clearance at Wal-Mart. You just can't buy the fabric for that cheap.
- the new coffee table. that my husband built. with his own two hands!
- the "twig" table, as I call it. in the bottom of the picture to the left of the couch. it's such a quirky little piece, i like it. since my photography skills of this room are far from stellar, here's a pic:
