I think I am in love with it.  I might marry it.  But I can't get a good picture of it.  This is my biggest reuphostery project yet.  There is actual blood from my body in that couch (but just s little!)

The cushions are crooked on this one.

Love what you've done! Looks about 80  bajillion times better. Cheesy
I also had to do a double take. Your living room looks the same as mine (minus the awesome sectional). Same window placement, door placement, hole in the wall by the door ( with ledge), same paint color etc. If it was my house, that pic would have been taken standing in the kitchen.

Hmm... that was supposed to sound much less stalker-y. Roll Eyes

Thank you!!

hippiekinder - You must live in a newer house too.  The picture is actually taken from the dining room table - it the common room combo living area/dining room that new houses seem to have.  The xmas tree is behind that classy decorator baby gate - it's not usually there. The kitchen is a couple rooms away.  But the paint colors are the same?  That is weird!

I have recovered a couple other things I meant to post. Maybe I will do that if I can dig up the photos.  It's not as hard as it looks.
