Recent Purchases

Happy February!  Today I thought I would share some recent purchases I’ve made that are helping to transform our living room into the room I’ve always wanted.

The first one is the Everett Foyer Table from World Market. I’ve been eyeing and drooling over this table for quite a long while now…I may have seen it a few times on other home improvement blogs out there. 🙂 Well, I finally pulled the trigger and bought it!  It helped that there was a big sale, and I had a coupon.

Here is the table we had before…at Christmastime. We bought this table over 15 years ago at Target.  It was well-loved, but a bit scratched up, and past time for a change.

And here is the new Everett table in our living room.  I love the distressed finish, and the bigger size.

The next thing I bought was some new bamboo shades for the living room windows. Here is what they looked like just after we installed them.

When I added the shades, however, I felt like the drapes needed to go…it just looked too busy.  So, I took them down, and here’s what the windows look like now.

Our next step is to change the trim around the windows to match what we’ve done in the hallway. The thicker trim should really make the windows (and bamboo shades) pop.

The living room is finally starting to come together!
