This is the room we all spend the most time in, other than the kitchen, as this is where the TV is. :) It's also always been the room that I tend to put everything that I don't love as far as furniture goes but I wanted to change that since we do spend a lot of time in here. First thing I did was get rid of our old TV stand. I hated it. And when you're looking at the TV, you can't help but see the stand it's on so I wanted something pretty to look at.
Hubby found an old fashioned dresser so I removed the top two drawers, cut the center wood brace (to allow for the DVD and cable box), painted it, distressed it and changed the hardware to come up with this.
It was a long awful winter and I really was tiring of the plain white curtains we had so I bought these lovely cheerful ones at Target. I don't think I've ever loved a curtain so much. :)
Hubby picked up this old vintage table at an auction. The iron horse statue evidently goes on the top of a fence? Another find that I love. And I simply can't get enough vintage books lately.
I bought the same curtains for the living room, which has also had changes that I will share next week. Our den is carpeted, which I don't like but it does make the room more cozy and our dog loves to lay in there so it's staying. :)
The artwork on the wall above the couch I spent an entire rainy afternoon putting together and painting with old wood planks and various shades of neutral craft paints and stains after seeing a similar version online. It's one of those pieces of art that just makes me happy looking at it.
And that's it for the den changes. I've come to discover that I really do prefer a neutral color palette in our home with pops of color added by using fruit or fresh flowers. I like it simple. Oh, we also painted the walls Simply White by Benjamin Moore. I'd like to find a rug to go in there as well, but am not sure about a rug over carpet? What do you think?
Enjoy your day!
