Client Living Room Makeover Tour

Hi friends! 

Have you signed up yet for my giveaway of a $50 gift certificate to Cutting Edge Stencils yet?  If not, do so HERE.

It's time to share another client makeover with you!

My clients are a lovely young couple that have been married for a few years.  They were living with a hodge-podge of furniture that was a combination of what they each had before they were married.  It wasn't really working for them anymore.  They were ready for a grown up living room.

Here is a before picture:

They didn't have a couch, just 2 chairs and 3 tables, it made for an awkward living arrangement.  They also had nothing on the walls and no window treatments besides miniblinds.

After discussing their budget I gave them some furniture options to choose from, they picked the sofas they liked best and I went from there with my design.  We decided to keep the tables as they were in good condition and not out-dated.

Here's what I came up with...

Doesn't it look all grown up now?? :) 

Another view:


I was able to use the large wall clock that they received off their wedding registry that was still in the box after 3 years. :) 

This space was a particular eyesore with all the electrical and cable outlets just sitting there staring at you when you walked in the front door. They did not want a TV in their living room so I came up something else...


I was able to buy them some inexpensive ladder shelves and make somewhat of a wall storage/display unit out of them.  It fills the space nicely although my picture of the setup isn't great...

I had a great time decorating for these two.  I love doing my dream job, thanks for letting me share it with you!

  4. The cherry blossom canvas is at Bed Bath and Beyond. I got a print at Hobby Lobby and framed myself. Nice looking room and I love the ladder shelf!

  5. I love ladder shelves and yours looks just perfect!

  6. Where did you get the ladder shelves? I'm looking for some just like that for my home office.
