Last week was all about my successful search for living and dining room furniture, but not too much of it had arrived to the house yet. Wanna see what the rooms look like now?
This outdoor chair…
…was replaced with these beautiful $99 chairs (inspired by the Pottery Barn ones I’d been gaga over).
The layout has also changed to make room for everything while still leaving space to walk around. Scott is very happy with both the recliner and it’s position in the room (in front of the TV, right next to a side table to rest a beverage). The only problem is that now the couch is blocking the satellite receiver, so we’ll have to cut another hole in the bookshelf to move it up.
The dining room has pretty much been vacant except for extra beer samples (from Scott’s job) and the remaining stack of laminate flooring that has yet to be installed.
Of course, neither room is finished quite yet. Both rooms need rugs, the dining room needs to be painted (and maybe some wainscoting?), that mirror on the left needs to be painted and hung, new light fixtures, new blinds for the dining room, on and on… But at least now my housewarming guests won’t need to sit on my pretty new floors. They can instead admire them from cushioned seats! An improvement, don’cha think? How’d I do with my furniture frenzy?
