Living room tour

Somebody mentioned that they'd like to see the rest of the living room after we posted the trunk pics. Here is a much too detailed tour. Let me know what you think.... should we paint the walls? At the other house, we painted them burgandy... it worked over there, but here.... we just can't decide. We are kinda happy with them being white. (I never thought I'd say that). First up is a clock I made out of a cookie tin. I think it turned out pretty good. Here's the most comfortable couch ever. Yes, it is denim. The coffee table was bare wood that we painted- same color as the trunk but with crackle. Here is Raggedy Ann & Randy Andy. Stormi's mom had them custom made to fit our house. This Raggedy Ann and Andy I bought for Stormi for Christmas. She kept saying she wanted some to put out.... I bought them and removed them from their boxes (I had bought her one before that she would not take out of the box). I got in trouble, but she likes em. This doll was handmade by my daughter in school. While sewing it, she sewed it to the couch. She was very proud the day she brought it home for her step-mom. This hutch-chair was one of the first projects my dad built when he and my mom got married so many years ago.... It has been passed around my family quite a bit, but I think it has found it's final home. :) Here's our love-seat. Made from actual Levi denim... Pictures, pictures, pictures.... Lot's of details in this one... The mirror started life as one of the tacky black and gold ones... The bench was bare wood- it and the frame were painted and distressed... The pillows were quilted by my sister... and I think I built the little shelf.... Here's the TV wall... (Notice the show that was on... lol) The Swag up top was made by my sister. Well... I hope you enjoyed the beginning of my living room tour. For more, you'll have to go see my wife's page... I'll continue over there.

My house looks alot like yours..I love pictures so much, that I have literally had people tell me " I have never seen so many" I also have shelves and swags(that my mom made) and some americana pieces. I Love the clock you made it is awesome!

A year ago I had the inside painted "blonde" which is a light gold, a decorator suggested it and said it went very well with farm red, which is the color of my couch and chairs. It is an awesome color, if you ever decide to paint.
Enjoyed your post and Pictures!

I loved the little doll your daughter made for Stormi. I love it when my kids make things for me... so sweet.
