Today I want to talk about my living room redo!  Its not completely done but it’s close enough!  I moved into my new apartment almost a month ago and I’ve been working on trying to figure out where to put my furniture and what I wanted to do with my living room. This room has definitely taken me the longest!  So before I moved in here this what my living room looked like.
It’s a pretty basic apartment living area.  The way the kitchen is though it made it hard to figure out exactly how to put my furniture.  I have a pretty large couch that fit into my last apartment perfectly but there was a lot of moving around until I got the furniture where I wanted it!  I also decided to do a gallery wall.  I had talked about this on a Things I Want to Make Thursday and I finally did it!  So here is what I have so far!
This is the left part of my living room and my gallery wall!  Disregard the fact that the fluer-de-lis is missing part of it.  I haven’t glued it back together.  It was the only fatality in the move!  Most of the stuff on this wall I had up in my previous apartment.  I have a black leather couch so I like the black frames in the living room.  I also just got the set of brown chairs this weekend at an antique store in Galveston. I’d been looking for something to put in this corner and the minute I saw these I knew exactly where they need to go!  You can also see to left of my couch a table my mom made out of an old suitcase and a frame. You can read about it on her blog here.
Here is just the gallery wall.  I think it turned out nice and I’m very happy with it!  From my apartment and some of my other projects you might notice a Texas theme here.  I’m a little proud of my home state! :)
Here is the doorway and my chevron table which you can see my post about here.  I think this turned out pretty well also!  You might be able to tell that I love black white and green.  I just can’t help it! Also, I didn’t like the fact that I had a fireplace and it didn’t have a mantle so I went to ikea and made my own mantel!  I want a place to eventually create a cute fall mantel like everyone else! :)
I hung up some pictures and put my elephant book ends up there with some of my penguin series books!  Also you might notice my repurposed drawer which I made into a coffee table tray with a big map of texas.  You can read about the project here.  That is it so far for my living room but I have a couple other projects in mind that might end up in here!  Thanks for coming by!

  1. This is lovely, Cara! I love the mirror and the fleur dis lis (sp?) in your groupong. I have a similar color on my walls too with mostly darker framed pics and wall decor….beautiful!

  2. LOVE the gallery wall! I think people from Texas have the most state-pride of any other (maybe Alabama, too 😉 Love it!

    Dawn from I Think We Could Be stopping by from All My Bloggy Friends :)

  3. Great to meet you Cara through the WW blog hop! I love seeing what others do in the way of home decor. Maybe one day I will get motivated to make a few changes of my own to share. lol Now following you on Facebook, Twitter & Google+!

    Happy WW!

  4. Cara, Great update to your living room! It can be tough in an apartment or rental where you don’t have total control, but you did a great job!
    Thanks for linking up this week at the Link it or Lump It party!
