Today, I thought I would share my living room with you. It is one of my favorite rooms because it is sunny and warm and comfortable. It is a work in progress, but aren't they all? My youngest daughter and I painted it a warm yellow this fall. It actually looks darker in this picture than it is . You can see one of the cats enjoys the sunshine in the window too! To the left you can see the edge of an old dining table we brought up from the basement so Victoria could work on her AP Art projects in the best light. She will be finished with school at the end of the month and it will go back to the basement, but right now it is full of her art projects. The old water pump lamp I picked up at a garage sale is in the corner. Not sure that I love it there and may look for something a little less rustic. Yes, I still have a Christmas wreath hanging in the picture frame over the sofa, I must change that to something more springy! Someday the beige carpet has to go and I would like wood floors instead.The beam in the ceiling used to be the outside wall of our house. When we moved here as newlyweds the house was around 600 square feet. We added two bedrooms and a bath, building everything ourselves except the basement. At the time, and after living in such limited space we thought doubling the size of the house would be plenty. HA! I blame youth and inexperience for that idea. Some day, even when the girls are grown & gone, we will move. But until then, it's just our little cottage and I am pretty happy with it. It helps that we have 5 acres to roam. The expansiveness outside, and the large windows helps it feel a bit more spacious than it really is.
I also need to make some new pillows for the sofa and chair but that will have to wait until I am done with my second job! That is my living room, small but cosy and warm. Hope you enjoyed the tour:>)
