In addition to the library that we updated, I also updated our living room. Of course, it’s all new IKEA furniture because we may have an IKEA addiction problem (although is it a problem, really?)
I was looking for some before pictures of the living room and realized that I, for some odd reason, didn’t take those pictures. The best I could do were the pictures I took when we had our floors redone. It didn’t look much different on day to day basis, really.
Also, I got a new Christmas tree that I put up before I took the after pictures. I have been waiting five years for a 7.5 foot tree. I just wanted a tree that was as tall as the room because I just love big Christmas trees (and, yes, there are presents already under the tree as we are having a Thanksmas celebration this week with family).
Michael calls this room our grown-up room. I do feel like a grown-up in this room. Gone are all the college and newlywed hand-me-down pieces that were falling apart. And it’s so cozy (though to be fair, the Christmas tree is making it feel extra cozy). And it has a rug! This is the first rug I’ve ever purchased (unless you count bathroom rugs and of course, I got it from IKEA).
I think we are done for a little bit on all the updates. But I’m so happy with how everything has turned out!
