Last year we finished the living room and this is what it looked like.
I needed to clean the windows and that required moving all the furniture along the window and this is what I ended up with.
I think I like it. I love that the windows are not blocked. The room is a little beige, but someday we are getting dark laminate and I hope that will warm up the floors. I am on the manhunt for a table between the chairs. Here are a few that have caught my eye, but really I am looking for something used under twenty dollars that I can repaint.
