Living Room Tour




Once again this week, I am participating in Kelly's Show Us Where You Live Tour.

Welcome to my living room! This is probably my favorite room in my house & where I spend a majority of my time. These pictures show a rare moment when it is not covered with toys.

Here is the entry way. I love this table--it is one of the first things I bought for the house when we got married. It was originally brown with a deer painted on the top and I got it so cheap at a discount store in my hometown. This was probably the first piece of furniture I painted and I loved how it turned out!
Here is the living room from the entry way. I have 12 foot celings in the main rooms of my house & I love them. I think it makes it feel so open! I used to have all my furniture in straight lines, but now that it is all on angles, I LOVE IT! I think it is really important to have art that you love in your house. On every trip we go on, I try to buy a new piece of artwork. This is a fabric wall hanging that we got on our trip to Egypt. I love my tree in the corner. Luckily it is fake, so I can't kill it! It's really hard to find big objects that add height, so I think this is perfect.

You are now looking at where I spend most of my time. Usually the ottoman is pressed up against the chair so I can have my laptop, a book, and the remote control right beside me. :) I think we are one of the only people in the world with a big TV still. Brad bought this TV cabinet and TV before we were married and I just can't get rid of it until it goes out.

Going in to the kitchen. The artwork above the fireplace was painted by one of my best friends for my wedding present. Of course, I love it!

Just another angle... I made the curtains myself (kind of). I bought 10 ft silk panels & then added the fabric and trim to them. I love how they turned out and saved about $100 a panel doing this myself. It was so easy and anyone can do it--you don't even have to be able to sew! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed!

I love your living room!I love the big art! I need some of that desperately. And I love how big your furniture is. Once Harper gets older and I'm not afraid of her ruining anything......we will have to get big new furniture.
And you know how I feel about your curtains - AMAZING!

Absolutely love the way you've decorated your home! I think I remember Kelly talking about your curtains on her blog. I loved getting a better look at them. If I am ever blessed with high ceilings I will definitely do something similar.

And, nope, actually you're NOT the only ones with a "big" TV still :)
