Yes, my husband is officially back from 44 long days in Germany! I cannot put into words how good it is to have him back. And to top it all off, he brought me a German Football Club jersey. If that’s not the best gift ever, I don’t know what is.
Speaking of which, we’re about to go get ready to watch Germany beat Uruguay for 3rd Place in the World Cup. But before we do, I want to share a few photos of our “new” living room. I couldn’t post these until Peter got back, because it was a surprise for him.
My new and super talented friend, Eliza, sold me a few pieces of wonderful furniture for my living room. Peter and I have had a black leather couch for a while, and I’ve been wanting to find another piece or two to match it. Well… when I saw this chair, I couldn’t wait to get it in my living room.
It’s sooo comfortable and so ME. I can’t wait to find a little ottoman to go with it.
Eliza also had this incredible 1960′s vintage couch. Isn’t it spectacular??
It folds out into a bed… and it’s pretty much the heaviest couch I’ve ever moved. Shout out to my parents for helping me get it to my house and into my living room.
Last but not least, Eliza had this coffee table. I’ve been looking for one for a while because the one that’s been in our house for the past couple of years has just been on loan from Peter’s brother and our sister-in-law. I LOVED the long, thin shape of this one and the floral detailing on the sides, but I’m just not a fan of how the color of the wood looked in my living room:
See? It just didn’t look right.
Solution? I sanded it, sprayed it with a primer, and then sprayed it this fun glossy blue color:
I think it definitely looks at home in front of our old couch and beneath my old table runner. When old meets new, magic happens.
Now if I could only trade our carpet for some wood floors….
