Since Andrew and I moved into our apartment only 5 short months ago, I’ve had grand ideas of how to make our cute little space even cuter. The majority of our furniture has been “borrowed” from our parents, purchased from “The Pit” at Bob’s Discount Furniture or the Habitat for Humanity Re-store (which I am a HUGE fan of not only because of the fantastic cause but because they have some great pieces like a solid oak bed frame and a solid cherry trunk from 1939). Our dining room and bedroom look great, not to toot my own horn or anything! My issue lies with the living room though. We were lucky enough to have a couch, chair, ottoman, and coffee table from my parents and two end tables from Andrew’s parents which make the room look cozy, and quite nice for the $0 spent!! I have so many ideas in my head that I wish I could execute, but the dollars just aren’t there at this point. The plus side of all of this is that I’ve had more time then the average person to really decide what I’d like to do with the living room. We have such a great space here and I want to make the best of it! I continually spend time researching color palettes, furniture options, and layouts and here are some images that are really inspiring me to get started on the living room makeover.
