The living room has changed quite a bit! When we first moved in the living room it looked like this.


Look at the doom carpet. Pretty Awful no? Luckily we had awesome floors underneath! Add a couch and some paint and it looked like this:

While I loved the slipcover for the karlstad sofa, it's dry clean only. In reality with the dog, and being prone to spill everything I ever get into my hands, it wasn't realistic. I still have the slipcover, but It's been traded out for a washable one.


We added more seating! I bought a kind of broken karlstad loveseat for 60 bucks, and with 20 dollars spent in IKEA as is section, and a new slipcover, I have a cheap matching sofa! 


I scored two floor display RIBBA frames for five bucks, normally 20$. I added some photos of the city I had taken with my Dianna.  I can't wait to add more to my own personal gallery.
