House Update: Living Room

Happy fall! Yes, I know it is not officially fall for another week but Starbucks has released my FAVORITE Pumpkin Spice Latte, so it's officially autumn in my book.

I can't believe how quickly summer flew by! It feels like I was just counting down the days to our California vacation and FIRST anniversary- we returned from CA on Tuesday and our anniversary is just next month!

It's been awhile since my last house update but I FINALLY have our living room to the point I'm willing to share pictures. There's still much to be done- I'd love to paint the walls and buy an accent chair for the corner next to the fireplace. 

Sofa and love seat: Ashley Furniture
Coffee and end table: Ikea
Lamp and shade: Target
Curtains: Target

Rug: Target

Pendant light shades: Home Depot

The bar stools the hubs was given by a coworker. They were a light brown so I used this chalk paint to paint them black to match the rest of our furniture. I also used a glaze by the same brand to give it some more shine. It was pretty easy! No sanding and just a little buffing with a soft rag for shine.

I'm currently scouring Pinterest for ideas on want to do with the mantle.  Help!

The white bookshelf is from Target. While we were putting it together I painted the back panel red for some pop. This is to tide us over until we can afford built-ins which I'm dying for!

Dining table and chairs: Rooms to Go
Shelves: Ikea

Mirror: Milagros

I'm obsessed with the mirror! It was a great find our first trip to Pike Place.  I would love to take out the builder-grade mirrors in the bathrooms and replace them with these beauties! 

Throw pillows: Kohls

So that's it for now! I think this room will be a work in progress for a couple of years.
