Our Living Room

The day you've been waiting for has finally arrived--I'm ready (kinda) to show you guys some "after" shots of my house. I'm a little nervous but shoot, ya gotta pull the trigger eventually so...WELCOME TO OUR LIVING ROOM! Before it's all decked out for Christmas, (which we're going to work on tonight!) I thought it'd be nice to show you some non-Christmas details (like our new floor). I don't even have any before shots to show you right now...I'll try to dig some up here soon so you can see the progress we've made. But here she is as of today...still not completely finished (we need to touch up painting and finish installing trim) but she's come a long way, baby!

Did you spot our new rug?  
(Ha...get it? Spot our new rug?)

Detail shot of the floor. (and my toes which could use a pedi here soon)
One thing I love about our vinyl flooring is the texture of it. It's raised in places (i.e. not smooth) and actually looks pretty darn close to hardwood if ya ask me. And how fun is our leopard print rug?! Got that puppy while shopping at a thrift store on vacay. It's a thick wool Pottery Barn one that I bought for $85.


And here's a shot of our gallery wall that I've never shown you guys. I'll do another post on this soon once the table under it (you can see the top of it in the bottom of the picture) is styled and the trim has a fresh coat of paint on it. It (the gallery wall) was a fun project that accumulated over time. Actually I just stuck those mounted antlers on there today:)

And here's my other gallery wall that I completed a long time ago and of course our ottoman and new-to-us couch and lamps both of which I got for a steal of a deal.

So there ya have it. I'll be posting more pics of our living room as it comes together but just wanted to hold you guys over with these pics. Hope you enjoyed!


  1. Sweet! Love your new flooring and rug, so cool! It really changes the look of a room, right? I love all the work you and your talented hubby have done so far :)

  2. Looks great! Love the touches of natural elements sprinkles thoughout:)And the floor is beautiful!


  3. Looks so nice and homey! Great job Kat!

  4. Finally we see the living room. You always said it was off limits until the carpet was out and now it is! I am sure happy is a major understatment! The room looks great and that rug was a major steal. You need to tally up the total for that room.
