I was looking through my blog and I realized my living room/office has changed so much since I last took pictures of it and so here is a little tour!
Our living room in previous homes never served a purpose except to collect dust. When we were on the hunt for a house a living room was not on our wish list, but this house had so many other things we wanted we decided to turned it into our office. I was a bit nervous designing this room, I wanted it to be elegant but functional and NOT scream HOME OFFICE every time I opened the door.
Here is a little refresher on the BEFORE:
Welcome to our HOME!!
I wanted our Entry way to tell our story to whoever came to the front door. The items displayed all have a story behind them or represent who we are! You can read the full post here.
This cute little chest was given to use by my mother in law at our wedding. Her father made it from old barn wood, isn't it so cute? It used to be red and ever since I refinished it she keeps trying to take it back, it may just be gone one day!
My awesome husband found this desk, it is a HUGE 6 foot HEAVY BEASTLY desk, that took 4 guys to get it in and they even took out my floor in the process. It was so big I refinished it right there, and I don't intend on ever moving it, good thing I love it!
You may remember my hutch I refinished not too long ago (post here)...here is where is sits and I still love it! It is my favorite piece and makes me smile every time I see it! I had family over for dinner and I felt so grown up when I said to my mom, "will you please get the nice china out of the hutch." LOL right?!?!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!!
