I recently posted our dining room makeover reveal, and now I am finally ready to post our living room makeover reveal!  I know. I know. It took me long enough! As a reminder, what seemed like a hundred years ago, I posted the introduction to our new home.  I didn’t know it would take years to finally fall in love with my living room.

Here is the room before.

Living Room Before

Since we have moved in we redid the floors and painted the interior. For this room, we painted the walls a bright white with a grayish tint.  We removed the carpet and refinished the floors in cement with an epoxy overlay.  We also got new six inch trim as well.

This is the view from the front door.

We found some great pieces including these fun wood cubes with rollers for our coffee table.

I also got this metal tiled media console for our entertainment stand.

The TV console matches this eight foot vintage metal tile mirror we bought during our architectural salvage hunt in Los Angeles.

I filled the room with things I have collected like vintage books, a globe my best friend gave me (yes it lights up!), and a ball jar that we use as a memory jar.

We also replaced the lighting with these fun metal orbs with a crystal chandelier inside.
