The Living Room!

Time to cozy up to our TV watching area!  
I mean, our living room, where we sit and have philosophical discussions.   And maybe watch a lil' bit of Homeland

These pillows came from Ikea and were hand stamped by me with some gold paint and a round spongy stamp thingy. 

Our coffee table is an Ikea Vittsjo that we hacked by spray painting it gold and leaving the bottom shelf off. 
Our furry rug came from RugsUSA during one of their fantastically crazy sales!  It's no longer there, but these are all similar
The Nate Berkus gold dipped bowl holds our remotes!
Spray painted rocks add some metallicy goodness to our coffee table tray!  

The tray is actually an acrylic shadowbox from Micheal's with some scrap book paper in the bottom.  Only cost a few bucks to make!
Behind our Karlstad couch is the console table we built!  We got this fun bun head print from Etsy
This box is a cheapie craft box from Micheal's that I painted black, taped, then spray painted gold.
I used E6000 glue to adhere beach glass to the top as a lid handle. 
This lampshade is covered in fabric from a Target shower curtain.  I copied 7th House on the Left's tutorial here!

Above the couch is a gallery wall. 


Next to the couch is the fireplace.
A big old picture of Audrey Hepburn is framed above the mantle.  What can I say, I love her!
It's been cozied up with a pile of every changing pillows!

Click here to see how we built a mantle and how I covered up our existing beige fireplace.
And that's what our living room looks like!  Look at our last post to see our newly redone entry way!  Next time, I'll give you a tour of our dining area!

Until then,


  1. LOVE this. It's so cozy and unique! I especially love the gallery wall!

  2. Oh my gosh, love the puppy picture in the middle of it! Looks beautiful! (The room, not just the dog :)
