Completed Living Room

I know this may not look like much, but getting the last few details completed in our living room is a BIG deal to us. We finally have pictures on the walls (instead of the blank frames that have been hanging up since we moved in...and were hanging up for 6 months in our last apartment).

I love how the bookshelf turned out.

I used canvas as a back drop for the open-back shelf. I used sticky velcro to adhere the canvas to the top shelf...a great way to make that corner look a bit more put together. I also made cute numbers out of card stock for my baskets (1 is our "home office," 2 is for electronics and cords, and 3 is for receipts).

Finally, we have pictures!

Chip board letters and some card stock for one frame, b&w photos of loved ones for the other.

A few odds and ends.

And our living room is finally a comfortable, relaxing, put-together place...

..full of treasures and sweet memories.
