Living Room To-Do

Now that the gallery wall is pretty much in a completed stage I have been thinking more about the living room overall. I know I mentioned working on the family command center, but it's not really ready for that.

We spend 80% of our time in the living room. We have a 5 room house. Living room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. That's it. We do have a screened in porch but it's really loud out there, so it's not a welcoming place to sit and relax, and it's really hot in this state. Back to the living room. It's the one place where we all get to hang out. Story's room is her playroom so she spends time in there as well. But Jordan and I just have the living room. His office is also in there. If we ever have company it's the only place for them to be at as well. Long speech to sum up : I need to fix up the living room.

Creating a To-Do list is a great way to keep on track. I know if I let my mind wander I come up with a ton of ideas, most of which I wouldn't be able to complete. So I've created a list that pretty much covers all of the basics to the room. We are in a rental, so there won't be any major overhaul going on here. Just a change in decor.

Let me give you a refresher of the room.

This is the view from the doorway that leads into the kitchen, and the rest of the house. This is also the view from my desk. The door shown is our "front door" which leads onto the screened in porch.

The area behind the chair is Jordan's office. I didn't take any pictures because it's his private area. And it was messy.

This is the view from the couch. The the far left is the front door. To the far right is the doorway leading into the kitchen.

We have a pretty tiny room.

Here is the list of all the To-Do items.

* Hang curtain rods on 2 remaining windows
* Purchase 2 more panels for small window
* Hang panels for all windows
* Fill rest of frames
* Pick out frames for the rest of the gallery wall
* Hang new frames
* Stuff new pillows already purchased
* Pick out and buy 3 new pillows
* Find navy blue throw blanket
* Fix space behind couch
* Paint lamp shade in a chevron print
* Hang panels in JP area?

Not a huge list. But writing it all out will give me a better sense of what to try and accomplish.


  1. stuffing pillows! how fun! i REALLY regret not buying pillow forms that i saw at a thrift store the other day for a mere 2.99 still in the packaging.


I love comments! They make my day :)
