My beautiful living room

This is my living room. It seems like every room in my house is "almost" done, and I never seem to finish. So there are definitely things I want to change about this room, but I am mostly happy with it.
Okay, here goes. Sofa and love seat from a discount furniture store for $600. The pillows around the room and table runner all sewn by me or my mommy. These are somethings I am wanting to update a little, but who knows when I will get to it. The coffee table was purchased for $80 (regularly $500) from the RC willy outlet. It is solid wood and it was stained dark, and I go and paint it white. I haven't liked the white paint too much, and now I wish it was dark to go with our new piano.

Fabric for window panels $3 per yard. (wish I got more.) Molding around the room, fab husband. Plus cost from home depot for supplies.
Okay, this is a dresser, but it worked so well in this room. Cost $150 from RC Willey outlet (steal!). I want to change the knobs out to crystal one day... Frames on top, Hobby Lobby. Plus one I decoupaged. I made the frame on the wall, and I am not super happy with it. (and I know it needs to be repositioned...again one day...

Chairs on each side of the piano, $45 each. RC willey. Regularly over @100 each. I painted them and recovered in prettier fabrics.


Piano...the most expensive thing we have bought in our married life (besides home and cars.) Wall art, all three peices from TJ maxx. I paid $50 for the center roses, and $15 each for the iron work on the sides.
And is that a little tiny baby on top? Why yes it is, my sweet brand new baby...priceless....(ahhh, couldn't see that one coming. No seriously, my two year old is for free, but this little guy, he is not for sale!

Okay, I so adore the decorative piece...meaning the baby in the last photo, totally priceless!

I love this room. Absolutely beautiful!

Yes, the baby caught my eye! HUH?! I wondered if it was some new trend in home decor. How sweet, that is a photo you will love for a long time!
I love the calm color palette of the room, very soothing (and you'll need that with two children!) The dresser really works as well, a lot of people wouldn't think to put a piece of furniture outside it's "designated" room. I love how the black piano looks next to all the whites and those chairs are WONDERFUL!
Enjoy your space...Janell

Love all the neutrals - all the whites. It looks great, don't be so hard on yourself.

....Very pretty room....if you want the coffee table a bit darker you could sand it a little then rub some dark stain over it....maybe try it on the bottom first to see if you like the distressed look....just a thought....

Love your parlor, very nice indeed. The baby is the best, I didn't notice him until I was reading! He is so small! The piano adds a great element in this room, total focal point. Love it all.

I thought I would comment on your dresser and the crystal knobs you would like to get. I purchased some knobs at an antique store but then found decent reproductions at JoAnne Fabrics. They were only about $2 each so I bought all that they had in the store. Beautiful pics of your home. You have excellent taste.

@cheapchichome. Re: Your comment about your rooms being "almost" done. Since I have started blogging, things I thought were "done" look sorely in need of updating--smile--it's never done, I guess!
