Pick Me! Pick Me! Living Room Makeover!!

Mandi from Vintage Revivals is having an AMAZING giveaway contest where she will go to the winner's house and help them completely re-do a room!

I REALLY, REALLY Need some help with my living room! (well my whole house really...)
I have a couple of ideas for every other room in my house but when it comes to the living room I'm always Stuck!
I don't know what to do to change it.
I guess I will just show you the pictures so you can see what I mean.
The only real furniture in our living room are our couches we got almost 6 years ago, the rocking chair I just painted and a cluttered desk I took out of my bedroom which is now tucked in a corner
of my living room.

I took a couple of cool panoramic photos for you all to view and really get a feel of what
I am talking about. Please excuse the poor lighting I took these at night obviously :)

I have actually tried decorating this space myself as you can see, I added some color with pillows,
bought curtains from Ikea and hung some artwork and now I am stuck!

Let's get down to the nitty gritty, these pictures speak for themselves:
(with some help from my new photoshop program YAY!)

A close up of the fireplace,
those patches have been there for about 2 years now...

But the thing I really dislike and don't know what to do with in my living room is this:

This picture is much brighter since I took it this morning. 
I didn't even bother cleaning it up so you can see how we actually use it.
I guess it was intended to be used for a tv but I really, really, REALLY 
don't like it! It is just where we put all of our junk, movies and more junk!

So there you have it, this is why I would LOVE for Mandi to come over to my house
and help me figure out how to decorate, paint and style my living room!

I will be asking for your votes some time soon! :)
In the meantime could you give me some ideas? What would
you do with my cubby hole nightmare?


  1. Oh My Gravy. Do you know what we could do with this room??!?! And that CUBBY hole? Dude. I am so glad that you entered! Good luck!

    Love your guts

  2. Thanks so much Mandi!! I am excited! I doubt I will win but it's worth a shot! I LOVE your blog!! :)


I would LOVE to hear from you! :)
