Updates--Part III--The Living Room

Another quick blip to get you up to date on the living room!  When last we spoke about it, I'd showed you the 'Wilt Chamberlain' sofa and it's massive revamp.  Since then, I've rearranged the room completely, added a few pieces...most notably a fantastic Brasilia-esque rug!...and made some pillows for the back of the sofa.

 I finally found the perfect pillow fabric at Joann's.  I thought I'd never find something that didn't look, well, cheap.  This is a lovely poly crepe.  I still need to make one more, but for the moment, I'm using the 'Dodge City' souvenir pillow my grandparents brought back from their big 'Western Tour' of 1964.

Closeup of the carpet...Pip approved....


This was taken moments before he 'claimed' the rug as his own...if you know what I mean.  Don't worry, I didn't kill him.

I switched the two stereos, Deano and Danno.  Danno now acts as the tv stand.

I love this mirror!  I found it at a local thrifty for $15.  I didn't buy it the day I saw it and regretted.  I regretted it even more a couple of days later when my newly referbed living room suit was delivered and I realized that the pink on either side of this mirror was a match to the upholstery I'd chosen!  Of course, I rushed back with fingers crossed.....SCORE!  It was still there waiting for me!  Once again, I'll say how lucky I am to live in a place where no one gives two doodles about deco or mid century!  It makes the finds few and far between, but boy oh boy the prices are always right (most of them will pay YOU to just take it away!) and there's never much competition!
