Ok. That post title is really lame, but at this hour of night & how random this post is, it’s all I have! So, lately I’ve been feeling really “stuck” with our downstairs living room. I just feel like it started great, & then I just stopped working on it. Then it just bugged me. I all of the sudden got inspired today to make some big changes in the space so I decided to document the space before we start with the changes because I have a feeling it will be really soon. When I get an idea in my head, I just go with it!
These lanterns I replaced our side table with for the summer. The side table was never used & kind of big for the space, so these work here for now. they are from HomeGoods & all I did was place some large battery powered candles from Target in them & place some greenery at the bottom. Pretty cool! These probably won’t be staying here, but for now they are fun & work with the space.
Some plans I have for the space: Add a sofa table, add a sectional, reupholster the chair [not pictured], add lamps, get rid of a lot of the decor & switch it out, remove the doors possibly, & remove the ladder and all of that because the sofa will now be in the corner, build a TV console for the tv [not pictured on the other side of the room], & so on… that is just a start. Don’t worry, when we finish the basement we will have a third living room down there & these couches will be used there. We are not wasting any furniture around here. Always recycling!
Now on to some fun news. I started a new hashtag on Instagram! Each week I will pick a a topic like “living room” or “centerpiece” or “gallery wall” and so on & I will start by posting something in our home & then that week throughout the week you can post your photo of that weeks topic & hashtag it with #LMBloves & @LizMarieGalvan so I get notified of it… & I will feature some on my Instagram & maybe even some here on the blog. Seriously fun & I’ve been wanting to do this for like a year so I’m excited to finally be doing it. You guys are so talented & I just want to see your work & show it off! This weeks topic is “family room” & ‘living room” you can see my post on my Instagram with more details & you can post your photos of your “living room” or “family room” & use the hashtag #LMBloves & @LizMarieGalvan. It’s also fun to look through the hashtag at other peoples photos & find some new accounts to follow & photos to like! I hope you all love it & have fun with it! Let me know wha you think of our living room changes, our lanterns, & the new hashtag in the comments below, find me on Facebook, & chat with me Instagram.
