I cant even begin to put into words how much I love this living room makeover. It has been a whirlwind few weeks to get this puppy done, but it was SO worth it!!
I sure hope that you guys have enjoyed this #100reveal series with GE reveal® Lighting and The Home Depot as much as I have! $100 and a little creativity can go a long way!
Lets just have a room refresher shall we?
I love showing these pictures. THIS my friends, is what our house looked like on the MLS listing.
This is what the living room looked like 2+ years ago (you can see the room reveal here). I love so many things about it still, but when the orange couch kicked the bucket, I knew that it was time to make a change.
This is what the living room looked like when we started this series just a couple of weeks ago:
Cue sad trombone.
My inspiration for the space was an industrial-ish loft (because that is all I want in this world and lofts don’t exist in Southern Utah)
This is what it looks like now:
(So many pictures, click through to see them all!)
My fear with leaving the brick raw was that the space would be extremely dark, so adding big light elements (as well as multiple light sources) was critical. The modern dowel art and the light rug make a massive difference.
This room is pretty long, and the way that it is laid out puts the main area right in the center of the room. There is this left over space that is too small for another seating area but way too big to just do nothing with. I moved the desk from the wall next to the window to right smack dab in the middle of them and I am diggin it!
Real life Before:
After: ( I feel like with this pulled back shot you can actually tell how giant the bent arm chandelier is)
The copper plant shelves in the entryway are just to die for. Can you believe that I got every single one of those plants from The Home Depot!?
We all love beautiful spaces, but one thing that was absolutely necessary for the entryway was complete functionality. The plexiglass calendar is so critical to our lives and hello about those cute wall pockets.
Obviously these letters are for pics, but I just have to announce that the 2nd one is addressed to a Mr. Tim Riggins because of course.
This is the view from the front door, the shadow art literally greets you as you walk in.
One of my favorite elements in the room are the family pictures . I love that they are so us, and not just giant smiling face portraits.
Tell me this vase is not the greatest thing you have ever seen.
Can we just talk about the couch for a second? I am 1000% sure that it turned out even better than I could have ever imagined. This is the actual couch of my dreams.
Do you remember what it looked like before with that horrible vinyl?
All of the black and white cactus prints will be available in the shop shortly. We added a few quick swipes of water color to liven them up just a bit.
I LOVE this room. It turned out exactly like I was hoping. Doesn’t it feel so loft-like?!
Creating a whole new room is so fun, but before you start tearing stuff apart, first try switching out your light bulbs. Check out the difference between regular bulbs and GE reveal® light bulbs.
I am telling you guys, using reveal light bulbs are like instant Photoshop for your house. Without the reveal® bulbs there is not a chance I would take a picture in the dead of night and post it on the blog. But seriously, look at how good it looks! Reveal® bulbs make things look the way that they are meant to. Whites are white (and not dingy yellow) colors pop and patterns and textures are more pronounced.
I didn’t want this last video to get lost in the pictures, so I am posting it down here too. Court is SUCH a sport. I don’t know why he goes along with these hair-brained schemes but man am I glad he does!!
You can see all of the projects from this series here! There are SO many projects still to post, watch for the sources post next!
