Finally - My Living Room!

| Comments

Well I was browsing for furniture the other day, as I frequently do, and finally found a media stand and bookcases that looked good and were cheap enough for me to get for my living room. This has been a work in progress for about the past 6 months. I have been a regular “browser” at Ikea, Cost Plus World Market, Crate & Barrel, and any other furniture store I could find, but could never settle on or find the right piece.

I took my lunch hour Friday to go pick up the new stuff after I took a quick look and determined it would be a good fit. Then I spent most of Saturday and Sunday moving things around and “assembling” the new furniture. My knees are sore from kneeling on the floor, I snagged one of my thumbnails pretty good on a cardboard box, and my body is just generally sore from lugging around the 3 heavy boxes it all came in, but man does my place look good now! I’m so excited to be finally rid of the moving boxes full of books that were still sitting in the corner of my living room and having my TV sit on a coffee table.

Here’s a before and after pic of the new room for your enjoyment, and there are a couple more pics here: Before wl-moving/Living_Room
