Well after 2.5 months waiting for our chairs to be delivered they finally arrived and we now have a complete living room! Here are some of the before and afters of our living room. It is connected to our kitchen so it is definitely a casual well lived in room and we are preparing with lots of storage before baby comes.
Here is our living room before. We loved the wall colors so we left them and the sliding glass doors were brand new and let in lots of light so those stayed as well. So at that point it was really just about bringing the right furniture into the room.
You can see that we have our wicker basket tucked away and ready for baby toy storage! Also the 3 separate small tables are awesome since we can move them around where we need them when we have parties and they aren’t as static as a coffee table.
You can also see under our acrylic table under the TV that we have two ottomans. These both open up for additional storage! Oh and I love that acrylic table. It is totally functional but also doesn’t take up space in the room beside the big chairs.
I am in love with the shape, size, and comfort level of these chairs. The rock, glide, and swivel which is so nice in such a transitional space. I also love the fireplace screen. That was a Christmas gift from my parents and I love it in this space.
I really love how comfortable but clean this space is. There is still a ton of room for playtime on the floor and lots of storage for toys. Also, we kept our Ikea couch because it is 100% slipcovered. So we are ready for all the dirt and spills this little boy is going to bring into our lives.
I think the majority of the house is now furnished! Now it is time to focus back on the nursery 🙂
