30 Spaces/ 30 Days
Space 16 & 17 of 30: Clean Wood Floor/Area Rug (Living Room)
Today, I cleaned the floor in the living room. I took the rug outside to shake it and let it air out a bit. Then I scrubbed the floor and rearranged the furniture a little before putting the rug back down. I like the arrangement alot better.
I can hardly wait to do a little re-do in this room. I've started jotting down ideas already. One thing I really want to do is have some built-ins made for the wall with the big tv.
Here are a few styles that I like (via Pinterest):
I'm not sure if I want a cabinet over top the tv like this one? I do like the style of the two side bookcases though but a little wider, and the crown molding.
I like the bottom of this bulit in, but want more of a finished look w/ molding for top part.
I like the bookcases, with a place for tv in between instead of fireplace.
I like the cabinet/bookcase style of this one with different hardware.
Love the crown molding and beadboard in back of bookcases. Don't like the cubby style shelves, I'd rather have regular shelves.
Buy 2 Billy bookcases from IKEA and add plank paneling to back instead of flimsy backing that comes with bookcase and crown molding for a custom look.
horizontal plank paneling added to back of bookcase
crown molding added to bookcase
I coud use the tv console I have now (bought from Target), and join DIY bookcases on each side of tv stand and paint the unit white. Custom look built-in at a fraction of the cost!
