Getting there... kind of

Well my living room is slowly, and I really mean slowly, coming together. Our sofa finally came in last week and I love it! It is big and soft and fabulous. I think part of why I was so excited about it's arival is beacause for the past few weeks we had been sitting on the floor or our one lonely chair, this chair to be exact.

So I still have big plans for this room, but for now this is all the decorating I have done. Like I said, it is coming along slowly. I have some solid blue pillows in the works right now, and by that I mean I have the fabric to get started on them. You can also see a little snippet (I'm assuming that's a real word) of the painted kitchen cabinets in the corner, more on that later.

And this lamp used to look like this

I found it at a thrift store for $5. Love a bargain! A little spray paint goes a long way. I went with white because I was first planning on getting a fun pattern lamp shade, but then I found this white one and I really liked it. So now I can't decide if I want to repaint it or leave it all white, I'm kind of digging the white thing though. As evidence of just how indecisive I am, the shade still has a plastic wrapper on it and I think I bought it 2 weeks ago. I'm having a really hard time committing to it, I seriously need help.

As a side note, my little guy turned 1 yesterday! The little stinker is getting too big way too fast. We celebrated with a dinner consisting of his favorite foods, blue berries, broccoli, and chicken nuggets. What a little cutie he is!


  1. Love it! How about adding a little trim to the bottom of the shade? Maybe greek key? Cannot wait to see more pics!

  2. How exciting! I love that chair! Cannot wait to see how it progresses :)

  3. Hey I get it - my family room needs some help, and I have made about the same amount of progress you have. These things take time and money (money being the biggest hold up for me :) Your rooms looks great so far!

  4. Happy birthday to your sweet little guy! And yay for the new sofa!

  5. Looking good! I love that chair so much; I recently used them in a project and they punched up the room perfectly!


You want to leave me a note? Thank you, I LOVE that!
