I hope you guys aren’t getting bored with all my recent posts about the front room. There are so many fun things going down in hurr, so let’s discuss. :)
If you’re new at Drab to Fab (Welcome!), below is the mood board I created for this room. Take note of the semi-boring but still attractive loveseat. Good, but not great.
Well, we spent a little more on a loveseat than what we had planned. The normal questions arose….Is it versatile? Will we still like it in 5 years? Is it made well? Does it have good reviews? Is the material going to show dirt/stains?
After reading as many reviews as we could find, we took the plunge!
The winning question was, “Would we rather have one we love and spend a couple hundred more or one that we like and save some dinero?” We chose the LOVE option.
Nail head trim makes me as giddy as a 6th grade girl at a school dance! And Home Decorators Gordon Tufted loveseat did not disappoint!
Here she is in our front room. The coffee table (that will go in front) is currently in the garage undergoing its makeover. It was a $40 Craigslist find. Whoop whoop!
We also snagged this genuine cowhide rug off eBay for 200 beans. Gotta love ebay. We went with one that 1) is tricolor and not the typical spotted look, 2) goes with everything, and 3) hides the pup’s hair.
Here are a couple progress shots of this room:
It’s nowhere near done. The walls are looking pretty naked. The newly madeover buffet makes me smile though. And progress is progress, people!
We are still deciding what we want on the wall behind the buffet. Those botanical prints are only temporary. We’ll do something creative, no doubt.
A quick trip down memory lane for ya–
When we moved in:
Then we painted and added wainscotting:
But it just wasn’t feeling right. You live and learn. And our style evolved.
Dude, we got it right this time. I’m a happy girl.
