Living Room Makeover REVEAL!

You’ve seen the paint color, the gallery wall, the furniture, the triangle art wall, the functional decor, and the pictures that I am using in my living room but you haven’t seen how they all come together yet. Well, I am happy to say (or sing, rather)…

Da, da, da, don. Da, da, da, da, don. Da, da, da, don. Da, da, da, da, don, da, don, da, da, don, da, da, don, don, don, DA, DON, DA, DA, DA, DA DON….

It’s the final countdown people.

It is finally time for the moment you have all been waiting for… My living room makeover reveal!

Because I know you would rather see pictures than listen to anymore of my singing, I will grant you your wishes to see the reveal very soon. But first, let’s take a little trip back in time. So let’s all put on our puffy vests and hop in my DeLorean for a little trip back in time to see what my living room used to look like.

Living Room Before Makeover

Living Room Before

Blehhhhh. That’s all I have to say about that. Dark and boring. Besides the giant picture of my family, it looked like someone else lived in my house. There wasn’t anything about the design that I felt really represented who we are as a family. I am happy to report that isn’t the case anymore. Are you ready to see the reveal?

BAM! Miracles really do happen. With the relatively small budget that I had to work with, I was able to transform the space into a place where I feel like truly represents my family. It all started with a can of Sherwin Williams paint that instantly brightened up my space. My love of Sherwin Williams Crushed Ice color runs deep to my very core!

Because my house is fairly small, our living room is the only space that can house our dog kennel. I tried really hard to find another space for the giant kennel we have for our tiny dog, but I just couldn’t do it. I do feel like having so many fun details all around the room kind of keeps your attention enough to make you forget about the giant black metal elephant in the room. I got the yellow rug from on their Black Friday sale. You HAVE to shop that sale for the best deals on rugs. I got this puppy for 70% off with free shipping!

I love the little pop that my triangle art wall brings to the room and the artwork that I was able to display. I chose not to replace every piece of furniture I owned because it just wasn’t in the budget, so I kept my TV stand for now. For now, it works. When it gets warmer outside, that will most likely either turn a different color, or be replaced entirely. P.S. See the kitchen peeking through the doorway? That’s one of my next projects!

Oh the couches. How I love my couches. They might as well be members of my family. I love them that much. Shout out to DownEast Home for having killer prices and awesome taste in furniture design. Pillows are from Groopdealz and the black and gold pillows are Nate Berkus for Target.

It was so fun to finally pull out all of the random crap that has been sitting around in my garage forever. I loved decorating this space.

Living Room Makeover: Couches & Giveaway!

I was provided with a $100 sponsored DownEast gift card, but was not otherwise compensated for this post. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

 DownEast Home Couches and giveaway

Things are really starting to come together in my living room makeover. I am just putting the final touches on everything before you finally get the big reveal to see how it all came together. When I first decided to take on this project, I knew I wouldn’t have the budget to get all new furniture. I decided to choose just one area in the furniture department that I felt like could make the most impact on my space and change that. I knew that couches were going to be that area. The only problem with couches, is that they can become very expensive, very quickly! Especially when you start getting into the nicer, more modern styles. Well, that isn’t the case when you shop at DownEast Home! They even have a great website to help you browse their furniture collections so you know what to look for when you go to the store! Check it out here.

DownEast Home Couches

I was able to get both of these beautiful couches for the price that similar couches are listed for per piece! I can’t believe how modern it makes the entire space look. You can get a small glimpse of what the space is looking like, but not all of it just yet. You are going to have to wait! For now, let’s just take a moment to embrace the awesomeness that is these couches.

The fabric that these couches are made of will be great with a busy toddler too because of the texture and the durability. They will be able to hide the random messes that seem to happen on couches.
