Living Room Reveal!

Last week I asked for all of your help with my living room, in this post. I got so much great advice from all of you. I was excited just to jump in and start it.

So here is what my living room looked like before.And now....
Friday night after the kids were in bed, I left Eric to watch a basketball game and I went shopping.

I went to Home Goods- have you ever been to one? I never had and let's just say I am in love!

I wandered around the store and I saw these chairs. I stopped, sat in them, sent this picture to Eric and said a good possibility.I kept looking and wandering but kept coming back to the chairs.

I ended up paying for them that night (picked up the next day). While I was out, I swung by Ross which was next door and I found this beautyAnd it all came together for my new living room.
As I said I picked up the chairs the next day with Eric's help. We brought them home, just set them in the adjacent room and then I had to go with Alex to her soccer meeting. When I came home my living room was all set up! Eric had carried the green love seat couch upstairs to our bedroom all by himself and set everything up. I was floored! Yes my husband rocks- and I am not even saying that because it is his birthday on Wednesday.The chairs ended up not being as bold or as bright as some of the chairs I was looking at, but I really really like how well they go with the couch and at 50% off retail I could not pass them up.

I will probably look for a plant or some tall decorative thing for one of the corners still, but I am loving my new living room.

  2. Your living room looks great. I love the chairs! They match so well.

    I'm not sure if it was just the pic or not, but the one pic of just the chair, the leg looks crooked...like it might be loose. You might want to check on that so it doesn't break off.

  18. Wow, LOVE IT! I think you could stand some new pillows on the couch too. Perhaps bring in your bold color through them? Anyhoo, LOVE how it came together! Very nice job!

  20. I second the bright pillows to add color! It looks great - and those chairs are neutral enough to last through a few re-decorations (as long as they can last the kids!)
