Making Progress

Things are coming right along in the new house. This week the new coffee table arrived as well as our patio furniture. We're excited to take advantage of the nice weather we're supposed to have this weekend.

I've been focusing on the living room because it's the first room you see as you walk in the front door, so I want it to look nice ASAP. My "to do list" is:

1. pick a paint color and paint (hire painters because the ceiling is vaulted)
2. find area rug
3. install window treatments
4. accessorize
5. figure out how to make the fireplace surround more attractive


Can you believe this is the same sofa? I found it on Craig's List (for a steal!) and had it recovered.



The new table from The Well Appointed House. It has an antiqued mirrored finish on the top which I love!

A fun accent table that I've been coveting for some time now purchased via Lillian August, but they're everywhere.
The dark brown chairs will be moving to the family room when these beauties arrive from Hickory Chair

The new patio furniture from Crate and Barrel

The top is tiled with travertine which supposedly has been clear-coated with a sealer to make it less porous.
