Slowly but surely our living room is coming together. Today I ordered the rug that will go on our living room floor after the hardwood floors have been refinished in November. It’s the taupe rug in the picture.
We’re redoing the floors in a nice red mahogany, so this lighter area rug will really show off the floors nicely. The rug should be delivered in 5-7 weeks. It’s just so nice to think that by Thanksgiving our living room will actually be a room that goes together. For so long we had a mish-mash of stuff that didn’t go together (we’ve been together six years and in that time have gone through FOUR sofas – first a black one that came from my single days and had seen much better days, then a green/white jennifer convertible I got from a co-worker, then my mom’s teal/white check sofa, and finally our brand spanking new sofas from a couple weeks ago).
Once this room gets done – complete with valances, new floors, creamy rug and paint on the walls it’ll be a respectable ADULT living room, instead of the “straight out of college” look that it had for all those years.
