The Living Room Reveal: Finally!

Finally!  The living room has been completed!

Ah, who am I kidding?  This room will never be done.  
I have been trying to figure this room out since we moved in 2 years ago and I have blogged about it a ridiculous amount of times.

I *might* keep it this way for a while, though.
Please tell me what you think of the changes!

Introducing:  The Living Room
We LOVE our new built in bookcases (read more about those HERE)  The cabinets underneath hold SO many toys!
New coffee table
I loved the old one I made (tutorial found HERE), but it was time for a change
Plus, I got to decorate it with all “new” stuff 🙂
Still working on that, but I am loving all of the books
Aren’t the mismatching side tables cute?
I still need to redo the accessories on the corner hutch
There you have it!
Our living room might actually stay this way for a little while.

    I absolutely love it! Either I need to move in or you need to come redo my house!

    I love the bird art behind the couch. Where did you find them? I also love the bird pillow.

    Is it weird that my favorite part is the oval platter!? Drool!!

    Thanks everyone!
    @Jenn, I found the bird art a long time ago at Home Goods…. unfortunately, I haven’t seen them since 🙁

    @Kate…oval platter is from Target! Woot!

    What is the wall color in your entry way? I really like it!

  8. The Mouse House August 9, 2012 at 12:38 am #

    Thanks everyone!

    @Brianne, the wall color in the foyer (and in our dining room and family room) is Tobacco Road by Duron, but that is no longer being made. The closest matches to it are Blonde or Restrained Gold by Sherwin Williams. They are literally almost identical!

    It is a LOVELY room, and I love the way you staged it. Cozy and airy.

    @Justine, I painted the stenciled wall, but I didn’t make the actual stencil…. I bought it here:

    What a beautiful update. That little white artichoke is great. Can it come live in my house!?!

    LOVE the owl on the bookcase. Everything goes together SO well! I wish you could come to my house and redo it!

    Today was my first visit to your blog & I’m astounded.
    I love it & going to watch for more.

  24. Rachel August 17, 2012 at 6:42 pm #

    Love it — where did you find your slipcovers? Did you make them?

  25. Debbie Booth August 22, 2012 at 12:54 am #

    Love it. Love the furniture, love the bird pictures and how you decorated the bookcases…really nice job on the whole area. You decorate beautifully!

  26. The Mouse House August 25, 2012 at 2:37 am #

    THanks everyone! I am so happy that you like it!
    @ Rachel, surprisingly, the slipcovers are from IKEA! We don’t have a big budget (at all) so IKEA does the job and we love them!

    Absolutely beautiful! The stenciling, the white book cases…it is all just lovely!

  28. Kelly @ A Swell Place to Dwell April 4, 2013 at 4:48 am #

    Your living room is beautiful. It’s so bright! I love the bookcases and the stencilled wall. Glad I stopped over from East Coast Creative,
