The Rug is Here!

Hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July!  I had a wonderful weekend: I spent some time at the lake with my cousin Katie, then came back and saw David Gray perform (he was wonderful), and then spent some time on Monday catching up around the house and relaxing.

In other news, our living room rug arrived on Friday afternoon!  Hooray! 

(We've got magazines stacked along one edge to coax the rug to lay flat.)  Overall, I'm very happy with it.  The pattern and color are just what I was expecting, and it feels really nice.  Plus, it was a great price!

Although the room still isn't done, here's a look back at what it looked like: 

Strange green walls and a HUGE red chair that I recently got rid of.  My mom and I painted over the green one weekend and it's now a soft cream.

I found a $100 sofa on Craigslist (and they delivered it for free!) and then had the sofa recovered in a peacock blue velvet.

And now here we are!  I still need two chairs to sit opposite the sofa, as well as some window treatments.  I'll add in some small furniture (side tables, and maybe a small chest) and some accessories and it should be done!  So, in other words, look for "After" pictures sometime in 2015.

Hey there! I've been following your blog for a while and must say I love it! I don't mean to spam you or anything, but I really think you should check out my aunt's Etsy store: bonbonseyecandy.etsy.com. I have a store as well, but I'm not going to waste your time with that.
I really think you'll like some of my aunt's stuff!
