I was sitting in our living room the other day and I suddenly realized… Man, I haven’t shared an updated “Living Room” decor post! WAY over a year ago I shared a little mini-living room tour to show the progress we were making in our new house. And now we’ve been in this house almost two years! Crazy! And, in that time, we’ve slowly but surely been making progress on turning this house into a home.
While we liked the way we had the living room somewhat situated / decorated, it was still lacking a lot of seating and it just felt a little “cold” and something was missing. So over the last year we’ve been adding little bits and pieces here and there and now I’d say the living room is really complete!
I still would love to paint the wall where the TV is, but that’s a project for another day and time. In any event, the living room has really become one of my favorite places in our house. We LOVE to have people over and having more seating and having the room FEEL much cozier has made a world of difference!
I hope you guys like the updated living room tour! Check out my previous living room tour to REALLY see the difference!
And… here are a couple before and afters to show the difference, too…
I started a cross wall and it’s already coming together! I DIYed the palette in the middle of the wall using this same method I used here, and I’m just gradually collecting and adding crosses to the wall as we go. I can’t wait to really fill it up! The lyrics on the palette are from my favorite worship song “Man of Sorrows” by Hillsong.
That pieces of “furniture” to the left of the couch is actually a DOG CRATE. It’s awesome! That’s where we put the dogs when we are out of the house. They love it.
Also, does anyone have a suggestion of a better way to hide the cords in the back right corner? I honestly haven’t even messed with it and can’t think of a better way to hide them…
The fabric flower in this vase was handmade by my friend Linda with fabric I brought back from Kenya! It’s so special to me. And the leaves are in the shape of Africa!
Pups relaxing on the “dog” couch.
What do you think? Have you done any home decor projects recently? If we were to paint an accent wall, what color would YOU paint it?
