And now the moment
you've all I've been waiting for... the LIVING ROOM REVEAL (did you yell that? I hope so)! I wanted a neutral room with pops of color that I could change out once in a while. Also, I want the piano to be the focus/conversation starter, which I think will happen. Since you know I'm all about saving money, I'll break down a general expense of this room.
view from the stairs
the piano area ($110 including decor)
love seat ($69), lamp ($14), coffee table ($20), end table ($10), couch from Z Gallerie ($2000-ish -- okay, I'm not always super frugal), sunburst mirror that isn't finished ($4)
I know the wall needs more, but I couldn't wait until I was totally done (which I am... never).
craigslist chair ($61), mantle ($59)
One of my fave parts is this bamboo that I used as a curtain rod. It was used as decor with some others at our old house and I don't have a place for them here. I like this use.
I went with indigo for the color of the lamp base from the Anthropologie Inspired Lamp Tutorial that I shared last month. I love light blue but decided that I would tie it in with the craigslist chair, which has the same color. The end table that it's on will soon be another before/after thrift store feature.
Here's the sunburst mirror, minus the mirror. I made it yesterday and will soon post a tutorial for it.
What do you think? Comments are always welcome!
