So, when I finally lost all control of my living room:
I decided to to take it back. That meant I had to let go of my computer room/guest room/storage room. That room has served many different purposes since we moved in the house, but this will be the most useful, I think!
Today I completed Phase One. Whew!
|North wall with a few cuties I found!|
That's pretty much the whole room. From where I'm standing to take the above photo, there is a dresser that works OK in the room, but I plan to move to the basement sometime.
Now, to add.
|New rug (on clearance) from Target: $20.98|
|Curtain panes for 2 windows (from Ikea): $14.99 each|
|New-to-us toy refrigerator - $8.00 (Craigslist Find)|
We already had the toy kitchen.
|New-to-us bookshelf - $13.00 (Craigslist find)|
Refrigerator - $8.00
(2) curtain panels - $29.98
Rug - $20.98
(4) red pillows - $19.96
Ikea Latt Table - $19.99
Total so far - $81.93
This is only phase one. I have big plans for the rest of the room - including some Expedit shelves! I also want to do some painting, not necessarily the walls (they are a very tame tan color, if I were to paint, I had ideas of Robin's Egg Blue, but that might be a bit garish).
Stay tuned for Phase Two and a new running total!
