Hi everyone, and welcome to my living room! In my previous post, I showed you the bedroom I share with my best friend in my rental house. The living room that I'm showing you today is my absolute favorite room in the house, so I can't wait to show you all!
We were so lucky to find this house last spring. We loved the hardwood floors and all the charm that comes with an old house. And while it's a small, cozy house, it has plenty of room for all six of us to spread out.
Every once in awhile we all get the sudden urge to clean the house top to bottom. This happened last night on Valentine's Day. We blasted some classy Billie Holiday music on Pandora, and spent probably an hour getting the house in order, followed by eating a delicious homemade meal together. And let me tell you...It. Was. Glorious.
This is the dining room, which is connected through an archway to the living room. That chair on the end and I know each other well. It's where I have spent COUNTLESS hours drafting floor plans and elevations for my design studio classes--sometimes until the wee hours of the night I might add.
We use this little chalkboard sign for messages to the house, and it also has each of our prayer requests on the other side.
My best friend's dad made us this gorgeous crackle-painted table out of an old door! We love it. So much.
Diane, my housemate's super crafty mom (and new blogger!!!) made us these cute initial frames, and then we just mixed them up with other frames/art that we had around the house to create a little gallery wall above the couch. Welcome her to blogland if you desire, she's really great!
See that? AN END TABLE. Remember when I talked about how we had no end tables? We now have one. Actually we had it all along, but it was just awkwardly placed by the front door and was kind of in the way. This is a much better spot for it! We need more still by the couches, but one is better than none :)
As most old houses do, it has its quirks (like the shower that has been dripping constantly for the past few days, and the teeny tiny kitchen) But we really love this house and have made some great memories here. I hope you enjoyed that little tour of my favorite room in my house!
