Some of the other changes I've done in the living room are a new family picture (thanks to my Dad for taking it!) up there in the frame, plant, and yellow throw. The yellow throw makes me smile every time I see it. It's so cheerful! I think I need more yellow things. I picked that up from home goods. The plant is a fiddle leaf from Home Depot. I've been wanting one forever but never saw them at Lowes where I normally go. I toyed with buying a fake one for practicality (I hear they are hard to grow) but the faux ones that look real are $250. I was walking through plants at the Home Depot one day and saw the real deal for $16 on sale!! Score! I figure I (or the kids) could kill a lot of them before it would add up to the fake for $250.
I'm also excited I finally get to do more seasonal decorating because I have shelves. Summer's not over but I was too excited and decorated for fall with a pumpkin, acorn, and pine cones.
Also Cam did a good job with baseboards here. See that intake vent? He carved the baseboard around it. I think it turned out awesome.
Next week dining room pictures... should give you a better view of baseboards since there isn't any furniture in there!!
