Living Room Redo

A few months ago I decided that my living room needed to be redone. It had nothing to do with the fact that my SIL was redoing her house and I loved all of her colors and designs. Nope nothing at all. Coincidence if you ask me. :) Anywho, we bought new furniture and I got a rug for my birthday and I have just been picking up pieces here and there to finish decorating it.

This pic is the entry way. I loved how this turned out. The chest is a redone piece that my aunt gave me. The lamp I already had from TJ Maxx, mirror is from Kirklands, candlesticks are thrift store finds, green moss balls are from Michaels. I think it looks great when you walk in. The pic sitting on it is of the boys:)

This is the sofa table that I made. I just bought a piece of wood at Lowes and the legs were already made (those were purchased at Lowes too) and I bought the kits to screw them on. Cost was probably 30$. Then I just spray painted it and VOILA!!

 This is my couch. Terrible pic. But it is a cream and black trellis. I picked out the fabric and it came from our local furniture store Broxson's it is Best brand.
 Loveseat with a picture above it. I got the picture at Ross.
The TV wall. This wall was really hard to put something on. The white wall decor are ceiling tiles and I think they look really nice. The chairs are from Target, entertainment center from walmart.com, and the boy holding the sword came from Cody and Andi's baby factory. Ha! Isn't funny how he HATES to be photographed but when I don't want him in pics he's in every stinking one of them!! Crazy kid.

This is right by the front door. I knew I wanted an orange chair in this space but I just didn't want to spend money. (That's always the case for me.) I found this green chair on craigslist for $40 and I knew I could recover it so I went ahead and bought it for $30. When I got it home and started taking the ugly green off it was ORANGE!!!!! How lucky can I get????? I am going to put a family picture on the wall right here and just change it out every year.
I also have a little spot in the entry that I want to put a hall tree. I think I have found one but not sure just yet.
I also have a wall with our grey chair that has a 20x20 canvas of the boys on it but I couldn't get my computer to bring the pic up. Sorry all of the pics are kind of bad. I took them with my phone.
Hope you enjoyed a little tour of our living room:)
