Living Room: Past and Present.

I just wrote out my rent check for June and was reminded that it's been two years since I moved into my little place! That got me thinking about just how much my place has changed in the last 24 months. If you are regular reader, than you know I kind of have an aversion to things staying the same. Just for the heck of it I thought I'd flashback and share what my living room looked like the weekend after I moved in back in June 2011...
(Please forgive the TERRIBLE quality...this was taken on my old digital camera and probably at night.)
And here is today... 
Only a few things have stood the test of time...
1. The dresser
2. The coffee table trunk
3. You can't see it in this picture, but the artichoke lamp is still in that same spot next to the TV.
Everything else like the curtains, furniture, rug, and accessories have been brought in over time and within whatever budget I was working with. I'm really liking the way the living room looks and feels right now, but I know it's not "done". Any room of mine will never have that label and I wouldn't have it any other way :-)


  1. I love the chair in the corner. I must know where you got it, it would go perfectly in my bedroom. Email me at lilsweetie114@gmail.com please :)

    1. Hi there! I just emailed you but here's the link in case anyone else might be wondering:


      Thankfully, I got mine on clearance at a local place which was going out of business so I didn't pay what Living Spaces is charging :-)
