Living Room Redo in Process

I have been waiting for a new sofa.
I've bought second hand and poor quality for years.
We counted that we've had 5 sofas in the past 5 years.
You know I love a bargain, but bargins without good quality
are not bargains.  They are a mess!

So, Mr. H said we could spend the bonus money on what I want. 

It's gray.  It is comfy.
I was afraid the gray would not work 
with the beige walls so I got a rug to pull it all together. 
It worked.
I'm gonna paint the rocker ivory to brighten up 
the room a bit. 

I'll have to get some wall art with some white,
beige and gray.  I'm looking for a seascape.

I moved the H and the birdcage.
I pulled it together with some of my pitchers. 

I bought the plant stand from a friend/vendor at our local flea market. 
She always gives me a deal.
My house has something from her booth in every room.

I sold a plant stand that I loved, similar to this 
while I had the shop.  I let someone (a friend) take 
it home to try before she bought and I was never paid. 
In our small town, I see her often.
I am always so embarresed.  She doesn't seem to care in the least.

As everything, this room is a work in progress.

Wall art, a painted chair, a painted coffee table and we'll be set for a while.

Putting life into a room, gives me joy!
I need a little bit on this gloomy day.

Hugs and Kisses,


  1. I love it! Our couch and chairs are looking worse for wear too. We want to get new and move these to our downstairs family room. We'll see how long that takes. :)

  2. Hi.. It is so nice to meet you .. Thanks for dropping by my blog and now I am your new follower.. It is so nice getting a room to look the way we love, eh? It is looking really cozy and comfy.. xo

  3. I like the gray. Did you already have the other sofa that is grey. Grey is neutral, I think, and can go with anything.
    You shouldn't be embarrassed if she is the one that never paid you.
    Sofa's are the hardest things to buy, aren't they.

  4. VERY nice! You have such a knack with putting things together.
    There's something uplifting about a new look for rooms in the hous.

  5. I think the gray is classic. Ivory for the rocker sounds nice. As for the friend? I would have to ask her if she was enjoying the plant stand.

  13. I love it! We lived with used sofas for many years. If it didn't come from a thrift store, we didn't own it =) we now have 2 new sofas....they were new when we got them. Not new any more! I do like gray but don't own anything in those tones. Maybe next time I need something and can buy new!.
    Blessings to you today!
