Show Us Your Life - Living Rooms
What does a teacher on summer break do with her Friday morning? Well, today I cleaned my living room and took pictures (as proof! haha!) for Kelly's Korner's Show Us Your Life Home Series. As many of you know, we just moved into our new house about two months ago. This living room is not complete yet! What to do with that mantle?
The two shell wall valances are new and so pretty! They give the room a little beach feel. They came from this etsy shop. They were so nice, easy to work with, and made sure that I got just what I wanted!
This is my little corner of the room. This is the softest, most comfortable chair ever. I love that it is completely slip covered and can be easily washed. I picked it out when Lauren was a newborn and Carter was a toddler.
Okay, so this is the incomplete part that I mentioned. All of these cords are driving me crazy! We were so excited to get a new TV and get it mounted that we just slapped the cords everywhere. Now it is my husband's project to hide the cords. I've bought a couple of those covers that you paint your wall color and am anxious to see how they work. If you've got any other suggestions, I'd love to hear them!
Probably my favorite part of the living room is this set of windows and french doors that go out to the deck. We have plantation shutters and they are just so nice. The wide trim is painted in a cream enamel that I love, too. It just frames the room!
Since it is a lazy Friday morning here at the Mansfield house, we are still in our jammies and taking it easy. This little sweetheart was on the couch the whole time I was taking pictures. Yes, that is "Shake It Up" on the TV!
Hope you enjoyed the visit! Thank you, Kelly, for the motivation to get this room cleaned. Now I'm off to look for some cord and mantle inspiration!
