TV Area Reveal & Linky Party #167


Hi Everyone! Well, I'm finally done removing Old Rusty, moving furniture around, painting and reorganizing~phew!



Before: Here is where the TV was. Old Rusty was to the right and the book case to the left. This is an older picture, before we replaced our windows.


After: Here is the TV in it's new spot. It feels like it was meant to go here, and I wish I would have moved it long ago! I like the view of our backyard behind it and the corner location actually makes the TV sound better.

After moving the TV to the left, I moved the bookcase to the left where the TV used to be.
Of course this created a domino effect by leaving a huge amount of bare wall space where the bookcase was.
That's when I decided to makeover the dish cabinet from the garage and move it into the living room. I also added the turquoise side table I painted last year.

Keanu Reeves seems pleased with the new arrangement.

My husbands chair sits right next to the side table, but I moved the chair out of the way just for this post, so you could see everything.
I added a reading lamp, and now Charles has his comfy spot to relax.
This is my favorite Pottery Barn lamp shade, I love the beading on it!

I decorated the little side table with my daffodils from Trader Joe's, just $1.29 for a bouquet. I get some every year at this time and wanted to share a picture of them with you before they're gone.

Normally, this little table will be covered with TV remotes and Charles' various snack items and coffee cups~Just keepin' it real! The shadow box with the shells was a $5.00 steal from the swapmeet. Every piece of furniture in these pictures were free curb finds and painted with free recycled or free samples of paint.
