I wanted to share a favorite corner in our home…

Here are the details:

The wall hanging is a scarf I found at a thrift store. I love it. I sewed little loops on the back to hang it.

The little chair is from my childhood. Gabe loves to sit on it and read his books.

The RICE stool was a thrift store find and diy recover. I posted on that here.

The crates stacked on the left side hold books. The crate beside the sofa also holds books and acts as a side table. I love crates. Two of them are apple crates that were given to me by my brother-in-law. The others are crates handed down from my Mom. They have old advertisements on them. I have more in other areas of our home. I wish I could tell you where you can find them, because I wouldn’t mind more, myself!

The curtains are burlap panels (on the left) held up with black curtain hooks on black curtain rods. The black curtain rods are from Walmart or Target. The curtain clips were handed down from my Mom when they moved. They were originally several different finishes, so I spray painted them all black. On the right, it’s panels of cream fabric and white sheers (that you can’t see), also held up with curtain clips. The burlap was from our wedding and the cream panels are fabric from Walmart.

The lights above the window are outdoor lights. They add such warmth on evenings and rainy days. You can find them at Target, Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot….

The black framed picture on the left above the crates is a framed burlap sack, also handed down from my Mom. The frame is a poster frame from Target.

The black dresser was a thrift store find that I refinished with flat black paint. When I paint furniture black I like the look of flat. This piece is great because it has two doors on each side, with 3 drawers in the middle. It holds toys and games.

Plants add a sense of warmth, texture and life in a room. I love plants inside. They get enough light because they’re in front of the window. They also give some extra privacy without having the close the curtains.

The sofa is my best Craig’s List find. It’s a custom Rowe Furniture piece and came with an oversized chair and ottoman. Even though the slipcovers can be washed, I keep blankets on them for every day use to keep them clean from two year old fingers and smears! When I was searching for a sofa, I knew I wanted the Pottery Barn slipcovered sofa look (but without the Pottery Barn price tag). I was thrilled to find this set that I got for a steal at $375, and was funded by my own Craig’s List sales. It’s in pristine condition!

And there you have it… a sneak peak at our living room. It’s one of my favorite places in our home!
