Living Room Makeover

Tuesday, September 6, 2011

I finally got around to taking a few pictures of our living room since I've been working on snazzing it up for awhile now.  (Unfortunately my picture taking skills are seriously lacking, but at least you get the idea).





I still need to find a picture of Nicholas and me for this frame, but for now this one is working as a filler.


While I was at it I decided to make a little desk area at one of the tables in the living room.  It's not really anything special, but so far it's been quite useful.


I had some green plastic desk accessories (the tape dispenser and paper clip holder) from college that I wanted to use, but they didn't match anything and were quite honestly pretty ugly.  Since the table is below the painting with the beautiful golden frame I thought I would try painting the green desk stuff with gold leaf I had left over from some other project.  It actually turned out really well!  Such a quick and simple fix!

  2. Quite beautiful! If you ever wanted to try to make your own art on the cheap, you should try this trick I used to make my own projector! http://thefirstapartment.blogspot.com/2011/06/how-to-make-your-own-projector.html

    Good luck!

  4. I like the color blue wall. Besides, it's my favorite color too. I never thought that a gold color furniture or decor would compliment well with color blue but it actually does. Great interior designing indeed.

  5. You really did a very great job in renovating the living room. I also salute you for choosing the color blue paint (it's one of my favorite colors). Anyway, I like the idea of hanging a gold colored picture frame on the wall. It looks compelling. The simplicity of your interior makes the house a very livable home. perth home renovations

  6. Your living room looks fun. Seems like you guys like modern designs very much judging from the way you chose your furniture.
