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.
