Style Saturday: Phase 2 living room makeover


Just a quick update on the developments over the last week. All of the Benjamin Moore Westminster Gold 300 disaster is gone. I love the new color and the more open feel of our space. I don't have apples-to-apples before and afters, but you get the picture...

We had the quatrefoil mirror from another area in the house, and it was from Hobby Lobby. The key is from a set of 7 at Pottery Barn for 15.99. And I'm in love with that 5.99 wooden sign from Homegoods.

 
We may eventually put a console table there, but I really like it as an uncluttered area for Larkyn to chill. 
This is what the corner looked like before. The tree will be able to have more space this year without the big bookshelf, which was replaced with....



This! We still have to do something with the cords, but I am so happy with the way it turned out. I had fun decorating with things I already had and purchasing the basket (7.99 Homegoods) and little flower/vase (4.99 Homegoods) The ladder bookcase itself is from Value City and was originally white (spray painted matte black). And there is a close up of some of Matt's favorites as well as a print of my grandma's house and a 2.99 votive from Homegoods. It holds all of our boxes for the TV, which moved here...



SO sorry about the Barney image obscuring all of the beauty! She doesn't even like that show, it just happened to be on. The only stipulation for Matt and his dad to hang the TV was that I still have room for all of my mantle-ish things. But then we had the issue of gratuitous cord-viewing. So, I found that lovely little yellow artichoke/flower. It brings in just a touch of the yellow I wanted and hides the outlet (16.99 Homegoods). I had the two candle holders from Pottery Barn several years ago.


So glad we rearranged everything. Our awesome neighbor "Mike the electrician" helped Matt with the wiring so that we could put the TV on the wall. He also helped remove our dining room light and replace it, which leads us to Phase 3 (this one might take a while)....

Looks great! Except, where is your dining room light? You didn't get rid of it did you? :)
