living room updates

I realized the other day that I've been so busy "doing" that I haven't done much showing on this blog lately. 

I finished those dining room chairs I mentioned a couple of weeks ago and couldn't be happier with how they turned out.

The wing chair I inherited from my mom had been sitting in the third car garage out of site and out of mind since we moved here. I finally found a slip cover that fit for a reasonable price and added her into the mix. 

My mom took back her corner cabinet {we like to furniture trade back and forth} and I replaced the empty spot with a tall white bookcase from the sunroom. We added baskets to the bottom two shelves for storing coloring books, markers, crayons  etc..

The spool table was sold and replaced with the mirrored side table which also gives us more storage and takes up a lot less space.  

We had needed an ottoman and I found this tufted gray linen guy from a recent Joss and Main sale. 

There are still a few minor tweaks to the space I'd like to make like replacing the the sofa- it was inherited from the previous owner. I'd love to add a few area rugs too but I don't totally trust my dog to not destroy them. 

Hope you have a beautiful day!
