Switching things up a bit…

Happy Halloween!  (I wanted to show you our Family Halloween pictures first thing, but I will have to get back with you later today, since I haven’t taken them yet!!  Whoops!)

Anywho, no huge projects today, but I wanted to tell you about a small change I made in my living room.  I’ve had a green wingback (via craig’s list) by the sofa for a while, I really like having a chair right there, but I didn’t love the wingback.  It took up so much space visually because of the height… and it really is needing to be recovered.  So, I decided to trade it out.  The old chair is going into my daughter’s room with a slipcover to dress it up, and the a new chair has taken it’s place.  (sorry for the night time pictures, we have been crazy making costumes all day!)

I love the new chair, it is the Safavieh Leah chair, from Wayfair… but I have to admit it makes me want to buy a new sofa!  I love the style so much more than the more modern style of our current sofa!  But I guess I will just have to live with the opposing styles for another few, well who knows, it is just not a priority right now.

Anywho, here is the space now:

It isn’t a huge change, but I am surprised by how much more open our space feels.  I am loving it SO much more than I used to!  Yay for a new chair!!  Any fun updates you are working on?

  1. Ohhh! Love the new chair. I could buy new furniture all day. ha. Can’t wait to pop back for the Costume pics. I remember the post from last year where you guys did a great job making them.
    I made my ds *years ago* a Tarzan suit *not much to that one* and then the next year he went as
    Santana and they last year he dressed up he was a GoGo dancer. A lady at the party bought the
    costume right off his body. haha. Good thing he had clothes in the car. I love to sew but not a fan of
    sewing clothes. This year we get to see our precious 8-month old grandson all dressed up. I’m thinking
    he won’t be a GoGo dancer. 🙂

    Happy Halloween!

  2. Love the new chair! I think it goes much better with your sofa than the old one did. They both have lower backs and cleaner lines. A huge improvement!! Don’t ya just love getting new furniture? 🙂
