I’ll just warn you now this is a boring one. It’s more for my family that likes to be kept on up changes in our house. Over Christmas I decided to rearrange the living room furniture, pictures, etc.
I had been in a bad rut for a while. A rut of not getting up to spend time in the Word before everyone else got up. Jerem had been struggling too. We both realized it was, in part, due to the fact that neither of us had a designated “spot” for morning quiet time. We didn’t have any lamps in the living room, and no one wants to get up at 5 and turn the main lights on.
Jerem’s spot with the “new” canvas wall behind him.
My spot with my new team-spirit-hockey-mom fleece blanket for cold arena games. I went with the cheapest lamps/shades I could find at Wal-Mart ($12 each total) and they are the perfect size for the room. The only problem is, my chair is rather “squeaky”, which kind of annoys Jerem. I wonder if it annoys him enough for me to bring his recliner up from the basement and use that?
Both this canvas and the large one in the living room were “fabric” posters I bought for $15 and wrapped around a wood frame I made. Definitely a lot cheaper than a 16x20 canvas would cost.
Below is the view from the top of the stairs. I REALLY want a new light fixture hanging there, but we are finding our wish list is longer than our budget. So, one thing at a time!
The next picture is the biggest wall in the living room. I’m still working on it. I’m not loving the way it looks and am open to suggestions and help. And yes, I realized not everything is hanging straight. I tried, really.
I’m kind of in love with the tin signs. I’ve been slowly collecting them and at $10-$20 a pop its worth it for the extra “art”.
Feel free to leave a comment on something you’d do different if it were your house!
