Here's what our living room looked like when we first bought it a year and a half ago.
And here's what my it's looking like these days.
This is the view from the dining room.
I love our big windows in the front of the house.
The little nook behind the front door where my son can sit for me to put his shoes on.
I painted the bookshelf built-in right after we moved it.
I also removed the bottom shelf to allow for taller items to fit.
My gallery is probably my favorite aspect of the room. The Ikea frames are filled with black & white photos of us and our family.
The view from the front door.
Of course there are some toys in the room but most of them are hidden in the baskets under the TV. It makes for quick and easy cleanup, too.
Some of the throw pillows are new additions, like this one. My mom made 2 pillows with fun patterns on one side and left over fabric from these chair cushions to line the back side.
