Reveal of the Living Room Finally!

Hi Everyone.  Happy Sunday.  Hope your weekend has been good.  We hit in the 80's this weekend.
I got my front flowers planted and oh how I am feeling it!  My back and knees are screaming!!! I am trying to put in more and more perennials but I still love the annuals.  So glad I can finally be planting in the garden.  Nothing like digging in the dirt.


Now for the Living Room Reveal.  I got my slipcovers this past week so now I can show you how the living room is coming along.

This was the foyer before. 

I took away the cedar chest in the Foyer and added this little chippy chair I got on our trip to Michigan.


Love this sweet little chippy chair.  Just adds some charm to the entry way.


Moved the expand o matic table under the mirror from the other side of the room.


Added some of my garden decor in the entry way for summer.











Did not touch my old lake house window and shutters.  In this tiny house that is really the only wall that will fit on.



Now on to the Living Room change a roo!



This is how my living room looked with two chairs and the vintage dresser.  It made the room feel bigger having just the two chairs but I always felt it needed something more.



 I wanted a conversation area for this living room.  So I added two more chairs.  I had the lovely and talented Lisa from Fabric 8 Slipcovers take my Ikea slipcover and add a ruffle to the bottom to match the other two chairs.  If you need a simple ruffle added to an existing slipcover or a whole new slipcover Lisa is your girl.
Her work is outstanding.
This is her website if you want to visit her and see some of her work.
Lisa does not compensate me in any way I just have loved her work for a long time and I love to let you know about wonderful talent like hers.   Lisa is a real sweetheart and so easy to work with on a project.


I like that I have more seating in the living room.  Makes the room feel more like a living room. I like the cozy feel that a conversation set up adds to a living space.

This is the cute little chippy table I got on our trip to Michigan.  Perfect size and shape for my conversation area.

I had showed most of you how Terry put up my chandelier and we framed it out with old vintage frames.

This is the cute sign I got on the trip too.  I love this saying and it fits perfectly in this small cottage home.

A friend and I took a ride over the boarder into Wisconsin to Chippy Shabby's Market sale at her home.  I found that awesome porch post at her sale.  It is so full of character and charm.  Thanks Jeanine I love it.

I feel the old chippy birdhouse needs a little something added to it.  I am currently working on that.


I just love the old chippy detail to this porch post.  Very unique.












So there you have it.  Just buying two more Ikea chairs and a new coffee table along with a few new decor pieces I have a whole new look to my living room.

 I am not so great at the picture taking and adjusting my pics with the amount of light that comes into this space.  I really wish I could have you all see how pretty this room really is. 
So please come on over to see it!!!
The pictures do not do it justice.

Have a fabulous new week.
This was fun to share my new conversation area with all of you.
You can go to my Pinterest Board to see other ideas for conversation area's I pinned. 


Soon I will show you some of my summer flowers.  It has been so lovely with our weather. It has been so nice to be out in the sunshine and planting.

Terry is also working on our new deck.  That man is awesome to be able to make a deck area in the backyard for us.  I cannot wait to show that to you too.

xoxo
