"Style at Home" has given me alot of inspiration!
It is one of my favorite magazines
Our living room had one very blank wall!! It just lacked some structure and detail. I was sitting on the couch directly looking at the "blank,boring wall.... .when this picture just hit me like a ton of bricks!!
"We could do this, I thought to myself!!
The wall is just about the same size as the wall I am staring at!
Have always wanted a fireplace,, and the little windows would bring
more light into the living room....hmmm wonder what Darrell would say?"
Well after measuring and seeing how similar the floor plan in the magazine was to our living room, we got to work! The little windows were ordered, we started looking for a fireplace and I began to dream about having a mantel to decorate at Christmas time!! Sorry, I don't have a very good "before" picture, but just imagine a flat wall of "nothingness".......
Here is our copycat result!!
Looking in from the dining room.
Oh..the TV is now a flatscreen that is receased and hides behind the mirror!
Most times the mirror is off the wall,,,but it gives me a good option
when I don't want to see the TV.
Cupboard to hold photo albums and games..
This little jelly cupboard is one of my favorite pieces.
This book shelf is on the opposite wall of the fireplace, behind the couch.
You can visit this previous post that shows a small fix up on the bookcase...
A little chair hung on the wall makes a great shelf..
There you have it...thanks for stoppin by my living room.
Put your feet up and come back anytime!
White pitchers are one of my all time favorites!
