House Tour Stuff: The Living Room

I’ve been adding a few things here and there to the living room this last week, and I think I am finally at a place where I like it enough to quit messing with it.

The only new additions are the rug and ottoman.

The story on the rug is, well, I got it from an estate sale. 
Are you grossed out? 
Normally I would be, I don’t like to do upholstered stuff, or rugs, etc, second hand.
But I made an exception this time because the house it came from was luxurious, wicked clean, and nothing in the house looked used at all.  So I made an exception and brought home this rug, at a crazy low price, of course.

However, this rug is a weird shape (Blobbish, as I like to call him) and much darker than would prefer for this room.  So I don’t know if he will stay here, get relocated to Jaggy’s room, or maybe the basement.  But for now he is comfy under my toes.

And here’s the other newbie to the room.

So that’s how were living.

  1. i like it. i like your blob rug a lot too.

  2. I think that the blob looks great. And the furry ottoman is pretty awesome too!

  3. Fantastic find! The whole room is great. We are about to move into a larger home and I'm going to be looking for some good buys. :)

  4. Impressed, to say the least.

    I am totally loving your rug... I need like 10, or something crazy like that, for all of my no-carpet-house. I wish I could find a wicked clean estate sale. :) I should be on the look-out, as I would've never thought about that.

    I am def going to make a Jesus Loves Me sign next week... loved that when I saw it at your house, and it looks perfect on the wall with their silhouettes (sp?)... and did you make those, too? If so, I would love a tutorial, please. :)

    I love it. It looks so welcoming and warm... is there a home magazine needing pictures? I believe it's worthy of recognition. Pinterest, perhaps? :)

    1. Hey Selena!
      About the silhouettes..... nope, I didn't do them myself. A couple years ago I emailed some side profile pics of my boys to this lady... http://silhouettesbylena.com/ and she did a few for me. I think I ordered like 3 copies of each, and used them as Christmas gifts for the grandmas. And I absolutely LOVE them, so do the grandmas. They are pretty great quality too, so I totally recommend her. Not very expensive either, although I bought the frames separately.

    2. Thanks so much... just looked at her site. I think it will be neat to have a memory of the boys the year we moved into our new house here in Martin {If we ever get in there. :)}.

      It looks like the copies are cheaper, so I might go ahead and get some gifts for Christmas, too.

      Thanks again!! Hope all is well!

  5. The room looks warm and cozy. Love the rug and the fun ottoman.

  6. Oh my word. I feel like I'm looking at a magazine. I love everything you've done. And call me crazy, but I love that rug...right where it is! I can't wait to see it all in person!

  7. Love the space and the furry ottoman!


I love hearing from you! Thanks!
