MrsLimestone over at Brooklyn Limestone has been kind enough to offer her expertise in re-decorating my icky living room. She wants before pics though..., do I have to move the piles of toys? It might take a while!!!
(Isn't her kitchen beautiful???)
This is how I described my space:
"Here is the most pressing dilemma... (trust me, there are more!!!)... but my front door opens right up to my living room (which is the size of a medium foyer!!!).
We have done nothing to this room since we moved in ALMOST 5 YEARS AGO!!! The moldings and closet door are a reddish brown stain (ick) and the paint is a yellowish cream. The large windows are south facing so it's quite bright during the day. We have dark chocolate brown sofa and loveseat and a silly large (old) black TV. That's about all that will fit in this room! (not including a coffee table and two toddler chairs, just for fun.)
There is a beige wall to wall carpet in there and the stairs leading up to the second floor are right there in plain sight (also in that reddish stain!). I like the curtains which are a "dusty blue" color, almost grey... which I think looks nice with the sofas.
Otherwise, everything is awful! If you have any suggestions on paint color perhaps? I also have a silly amount of my children's photos on the walls. Not particularly stylish, but..., alas!!!
I live in a small (cottage like) house on Long Island, which is on the Northeast Coast of NY. I like seaside/farmhouse... whatever!" (blah, blah, blah...)
I can't wait to see what she comes up with!
On another note:
How much do you think this file cabinet from Pottery Barn usually goes for?
Well, I picked up one yesterday at their Outlet Store in Riverhead, NY for $29.97.
I'm not kidding...
Bedford 2-Drawer File Cabinet
$279.00 SPECIAL $249.00 ($25.00 shipping*)
I just had to share one of the best bargains ever!
