I have 3 dogs and two energetic kiddos (ages 5 and 3) so I had to design my room with to be very forgiving when it comes to stains and such! I love love love a white slipcovered couch look but that just wasn't going to work in my house! We eat peanut butter and jelly on the coach and I love that I don't have to worry! The sectional is a dark brown color but it has some texture to it and some black in it. It is super comfortable and the best part is the cushions come off for fort building!I got the rug about 6 months ago from Home Depot it was only $80! Its held up great so far despite little toes and paws dragging in mud from our back yard! I love that it brings some light to the room and it has a nice texture to it!
The stripped curtains I painted myself awhile ago! The curtains were originally tan and they came with the house when we bought. I painted them using fabric paint and Frog Tape. If I had to do it over again I would just use regular latex paint it would be cheaper and give the same result.
I got this old beat up trunk at a garage sale for $5! I've thought about painting it since I have no other red/orange in my house, but for now I'm liking the color for fall!
I love that my kids can feel like they're part of my decorating and that it creates a relaxed and personalized touch in our living room!
My coffee table I made over while ago and I posted about here! Its held up well considering all the "love" it gets in our house!
I love decorating our mantle during different seasons! I kept it pretty neutral and not too "fall-ish" since I'm taking pictures for potential renters to see.
My hubby actually built the mantle! He framed it out using molding we picked out from Home Depot! I wish I had a before picture to show you but just picture a fireplace (brass screen and all) I sprayed painted it black, with no mantle or wood work at all just mauve tiles around it!
This wall is probably my favorite in my house! I love the combination of the new Ikea Expedit Shelving mixed with the old wood dresser! I love the green plants and the old Coco Cola crate where we store our Dvds. I should have hid my cords before I took this picture oops!
I'm sure going to miss our first house but I'm excited for whats to come!
