I need something on the wall above the couch! 😭 I like a patterned rug and structured couches. Plus our living room isn’t really big enough for a sectional (there’s a piano on the wall near where I’m standing). I go back and forth on wanting a coffee table, but the leather ottoman is very comfortable to put your feet on! Almost like a chaise then.

julies1949 :  We do have a tray we can use on the ottoman that works well, and we have end tables on both sides of the couch for drinks. I think it’s too big to have two or get a U table, but those are great suggestions!

SabL22 :  Both are from Wayfair! I got the lamp a while ago and I don’t know if they carry the exact one anymore, but they have similar.

SabL22 :  Thank you. I enjoy painting so painting walls and furniture is fun. My husband helps with the rest. I am still too terrified to try wallpapering so I have a very bare wall in my dining room which needs sorting haha.

I am so here for these cool old houses and love the modern apartments. We moved last year, and my living room is a hot mess of toys and crap, but I’ll play along. I am desperately trying to find a lower, casual sectional that will fit nicely and still give room for toddler antics. I love single cushion sofas for napping, so that adds to the difficulty on finding the right thing. My current sofa has been with me since my first apartment when I was 23. It’s a microsuede that literally does not stain no matter how hard my family tries. I love it, but not the right thing for this room.

whitums :  You’re not wrong!  The entire property was basically gutted, rewired, replumbed, re-plastered, floors ripped up, new bathroom, new kitchen, lots of windows replaced etc.  

That fireplace actually caused a huge delay to everything as it turned out it was made out of asbestos and we had to have specialists come in to remove it.  As did the textured ceilings.  The joys of renovating a 1900 property that hadn’t been touched since the 70s.

zzar45 :  Oh man, that’s so awesome you were able to do all of that though. My house is 150 years old, and most of the work to have it re-done was by previous homeowners. I wish we could have done it ourselves as I don’t think they did a quality job and there was definitely asbestos and lead paint involved. We did refinish our floors and replaced in some spots that weren’t so great. We actually found large rocks upstairs being used as support instead of wood embarassed
