Thanks to Craigslist, I have a new living room! We took the old hugemongo chairs out (as seen above) and purchased a matching pair of smaller, vinatge chairs (for $40!) to replace them. Those old recliners were waaaaay too big for this room.
Then, oh then! I found two antique corner hutches for suuuper cheap. It was the score of the century.
After that, we hung up some old toile curtains that I have had for awhile that I found at the Goodwill, set up our old record player, and voila! We have a whole new living room!
Now we just need to find a rug (possibly a cool oriental one?) and get my grandma's old coffee table down from the attic, and we'll be all set.
What kind of a rug do you think would look good in this room?
I need your wonderful opinions/ideas...
I've been wanting to get more of a vintage-y feel in here for a long time, so I'm super excited!
I love my new living room. I felt like we had been slowly drowning in brown. It feels like it is so much more "us" now.
Craigslist RULES. :)
PS. Tomorrow we will be in CALIFORNIA! Super mega ultra Squeal !!!
