Cha Cha Cha Changes

I have been sharing more craft projects on here recently and thought it was time for a house update. After all, this is Remodel This House, not Craft This House. So, how about I share the living room?! You have only seen the living room like this:
That photo brings back some memories...great memories since this is our first house. And we have done quite a lot of remodel work in this area. Here is the project run-down list: ripped up carpet, installed hardwood floors, refinished hardwood, replaced ceiling fan and light fixtures, tore out the built-ins, removed the fireplace hearth, tiled a new fireplace surround, built a mantle, frosted the side lights, and replaced the gold with brushed nickel. Whew! We've been busy bees. Check out all the juicy details on the project page.

Now for a recent picture:
Um, yep. It is slightly different than the before picture. We got a new temporary couch, an entertainment center, coffee table, and a few decor items. Now for the run-down of the new items.

The entertainment center is from IKEA, my favorite 6-hour-drive-away store. There are six separate cubes that make up the unit. This is great because if I ever want a change, I can break up the unit into individual pieces. And the storage space is wonderful compared to what we had - an open tv stand which was reused in the man cave. The coffee table is a cheap Lack table, also from IKEA. I couldn't pass up the $20 table, on sale.

The sofa is temporary. It will eventually  move to the sitting area in the bedroom when I find a sofa I like for the living room. This sofa is actually modular so I can have a love seat and chair, or a sofa. Perfect for the sitting area, but not-so-perfect for the living room.

And this is the other side of the living room. The little bit of wall you see on the bottom right is the same wall that the entertainment center is on.

Yay for changes! My house is constantly changing. Every day. I am always updating something, or spray painting an item, or repurposing a thrift store find. You get the picture, it is constant changes around here.
