Personal~Living room progress

I absolutely love home improvements, sometimes I don't enjoy "doing" them but I definetly enjoy the outcome. Painting our living room was one of those long and tedious improvements that fortunately resulted in a beautiful outcome. It took an entire weekend and my hubbys help, he did all the crown molding, to cover up all the blue and orange. With a few other upgrades and DIYs my living room is finally coming together!!!


we used behrs cliff rock which I think looks like caramel and coffee with cream. Very warm :)








This is the only before picture I could find. You can see the obnoxiously bright orange accent wall and the rest a bright baby blue.....dont know what I was thinking....

I got a new crisp white bookcase at walmart for only $16 bucks!!








we'll be hanging a few shelves kind of like these I found on pinterest, love that website!



we also scored this recliner from a neighboors garage sale for $10 bucks!! Some of the fabric was torn from their dog and its still a little smelly.....but not too bad for only $10!







I'm not too sure yet what I want to do with our coffee table, I'm not digging the orangey colored stain. I'm thinking maybe painting the top white and distressing it........


Or bringing in some of logs from outside, so pretty!




I found all these frames at a thrift store and re-painted them, one with the teal accent color. All of these photos were taking by me :)






















I re-covered the throw pillows I had with some white fabric and the other ones are from two pillow cases I got at walmart!







I love the writing on the lamp shade, but my handwriting skills need to improve. I might have to outsource for this one or just cover it with fabric















Anyway, hope you enjoyed a tour of my living room, have a wonderful weekend!! :)
