Or at least my living room! In summary, 3 years ago I bought a matching set of Lane chairs. Biggest mistake EVER! Long ordeal in a shorter version? It took 5 chairs to get two that were passable, and even one of the ones that I finally kept needed repair. Well, they were marginal at best, but I settled with the two I had. One has always had a chronic problem of the pillow top getting wedged to the back, and last week after hubby reclined the chair, it broke. And by broke, I mean you have one side of your body 5 inches lower than the other. The back looks worse, but here’s the picture I have:
So we went shopping. And we ended up with a nearly new living room. So here are the before:
The bookshelves are all IKEA as are the end tables, and as soon as the TV is replaced with a flat screen, I have the matching TV cabinet that fits neatly between. But in the meantime, here’s what a new rug, two new chairs/ottomans, a new couch, and a new coffee table will get you! (Note, the first picture is closest to the true wall color)
Shockingly this is what the couch looked like before assembly:
Now I just need to do some updating and rearranging of décor (almost time for snowman stuff to go away) and this room will be just perfect.
