Living Room Update

So I've been working on my living room for quite some while now.  My mom laughs because she asked if I'm going to be redecorating it on a weekly basis (hee hee, maybe!).  Anywho, have been having a tough time with it.  So, here is a sneak peak at what's been brewing.
It started off with this awesome Craigslist find (Please ignore the bizarre wicker lamp hanging in the was replace with something much better)

I know what your thinking...What in the world are you gonna do with that!?!  Well, at least that is what the Mr. was thinking.  It was only $60 and the seller offered to deliver it...Score, right!!!

So I painted it (still using the left over paint from the dining room), gave it some new hardware and lined the whole inside with this awesome shelf paper...Perfect!  It's a desk/craft station all in one!!!  So awesome and perfect since I've let the Mr. keep his man cave even though I would love to have an office/craft room (OK, maybe more a craft room than office) but this new cabinet is perfect!

After this I promised the Mr. that this was the last furniture project and that I wouldn't be turning our living/dining room into a garage anymore.  BUT, then I found this set on craigslist!

A whole set, 2 side tables and a coffee table!  The best part is they all have storage...Extra blankets to cuddle with, pillows, and board games all easily accessible right in the living room!  The problem is that they would need to be painted....Oops!  There goes that promise I previously made ;)

Ahh, beautiful!

And did I tell you that that the coffee table is a lift top???  What a bargain!!!  Now the Mr. and I can have date night in front of the TV!  Every man's dream, right?? (Kidding...he is much better than that)

On this set I did decide to keep all the original hardware which is where the spray paint came in handy...Love spray paint!!

OK, so that's the major furniture pieces.  Next, I have to figure out how to blend my surfboard that hangs on the wall in the living room (again, more needs for a garage!) with the rest of the living room.  So...drum roll please....Here is my sneak peak

Cute, right!!!  I can't wait to show you the rest, but I have a few finishing touches to add...Stay tuned for the big reveal!
