The nursery is not the only new thing in our house. For the past 4/5 months we have been on the search for a new couch. They were either to expensive or to big, so on. We finally found one where the price was right! We were able to pick a fabric we loved and have it custom built. They said 8 to 10 week wahhh wahhh. Well thanks to a christmas miracle it showed up in a months time!
Here is what our living room looked before
And here is what it looks like now! It’s going to take some getting use to, but I LOVE IT!!
The rocking chair will go where the tree is now.
That back left corner is kinda bugging me, but what can I do? I’m also not crazy about the couch not being centered under the window but again it fits better this way. SO welcome to the world my new baby… couch!
Well that was a long break, lets call it summer vacation…
A couple weeks back I was on Craigslist, I always search for furniture. I typed in Crate and Barrel and came across a queen sized bed frame for $100.00 OBO. Few emails later the bed was mine! It’s perfect for the guest room. Stay tuned for the new dresser the hubs and I found at a salvation army for $19.00. 🙂
I’m a fan of window shopping, and by that I mean searching the web for deals. Almost everyday I hit up my local Craiglist to see what’s out there. Here are some of the find in or around my area!

I get lovely emails from West Elm, CB2 and Crate and Barrel all the time. Telling me about sales and new items, and making me wish I was loaded to buy everything they all make! Today CB2 hit me up with their latest sales items and it got me thinking. What would it look like to do a quick redo of my living room. Keep the bones but change colors of pillow rug and curtains.
