I wanted to write to you all about our living room revamp! I know, I did have a different couch I had purchased last winter, but it just wasn’t working for me! It was gray which I thought I would love and oversized and well I just didn’t like it!!! I am sooo happy with my new purchase! I bought the Stocksund sofa from IKEA. It is slip covered and makes the room feel so much lighter and airy! Hindsight is alway 20/20 and I wish I would have known about IKEA back when we were doing the house remodel, but it wasn’t until I met Rachel did she enlighten me to the wonderful world of IKEA. I mean OMG I LOVE that place!
Here is a picture of the new sofa-
Don’t mind the ugly plant there by the window. It is a lemon tree that is not too happy with me. I was going to remove it, but with baby in one hand and trying to take photos in the other I forgot all about it!
And do you see that hutch in the back?? That was my husbands grandmothers, Morna. I just was getting to know her before she passed two years ago. From what I know and have heard she was the most selfless women. She LOVED that hutch. I have to say I did paint it….. Morna goodness I hope you forgive me! But I too am now in LOVE with it. It provides just good storage for us now that I put baskets on the shelves and they are FULL. I used Annie Solon chalk paint. That color is called French Linen 🙂
The newest thing in the room is this ladder I found at that secret barn sale I keep talking about! I want to share sooo bad, but have been begged by friends to please PLEASE not share!!!
I feel it brings good height and love the feel it brings to the room. That dresser is from the Flat River Cottage in Lowell and was a must have. Talk about LOVE at first sight <3
Well folks, there you have it! The living room. Next, to decorate it for Christmas!!
