Can I just share with you that my living room is one of my favorite rooms in my home? I think it is because at the moment, it is the room that is the most decoratively complete and the most “me”. This room has color, personality and definitely decorated on a budget with pieces collected over time. I define my style as Vintage Traditional. I love mixing antiques, collectibles, found items and pieces with special meaning into my decor.
So…come on in and let me show you around.
Speaking of furniture, this antique sofa was free! Can you believe it? I have a friend that owns an upholstery business. This sofa was given to her in multiple pieces and she was going to throw it away – I know…don’t even get me started 🙂 So I offered to put it back together with a little bit of assistance from her husband. I purchased very inexpensive fabric and my friend upholstered the sofa for me. I can’t express how excited I was to get this antique beauty in my home!
Like a lot of you, I make the rounds at TJ Maxx and HomeGoods – in fact I call it the pilgrimage, as I visit my local stores. I typically make a beeline for the home section and visit the clearance shelves first. You would be surprised at the deals I’ve found on those wonderful aisles. On one particular visit I found these three decorative wooden mirrors for $5 a piece. They are the perfect addition for this odd wall behind the chair.
Luckily for me, and not too far from my home is a hotel furniture liquidation center. The coffee table is super heavy and needs two people to move it. The table is quality made and cost me a grand total of $30!
Y’all have seen my painted wing chair before…yes, the fabric is painted 🙂 You can read that post HERE.
Do you remember when I showed you how I transformed this carved wooden box?
The brass pieces are vintage memo holders.
The antique mahogany table has made the rounds, so to speak. When I lived in North Carolina I purchased the table from a friend at a yard sale. A couple of years later I sold it to another friend and then bought it back from her a few years later. I was thrilled to get it back…sorry Ladies 🙂
This living room is my favorite room because every piece in it has special meaning to me. I remember where I purchased each piece, who I was shopping with or who gifted me an item used in the room. I love drinking my morning coffee on my painted wing chair while talking on the phone with my friends. This room is like a favorite pair of jeans – well worn, comfortable, cozy and loved.
I hope you liked the tour 🙂 We’ll see you back here tomorrow!
