Well, I knew it. I knew if I did not paint the den right when we moved in, it would not get done. I lied to myself prior to getting the sofa, thinking I would paint before it was delivered. I didn’t paint. I’m pretty sure I’m not going to anytime soon or ever. I just don’t feel like. It’s just too messy.
The walls do not look as warm in person. They are warmer than I would like, but they aren’t lime green so I don’t feel like if I do not paint, I will go crazy. The space has turned into an eclectic mix of Asian, traditional, and rustic decor. Most everything is from family members or homemade.
The sofa turned out great. It is aesthetically pleasing and comfortable. We have spent a lot of time in the den watching TV and taking naps (well, Matt takes naps).
If the decor wasn’t given to me by a family member, it most likely came from TJMaxx or Homegoods. The media cabinet, floor lamp, and baskets came from Target .
The mirror and footstool came from Target. The horse came from ZGallery and the other items are from my aunt and grandmother. I want new lamps eventually but these still work so they are fine for now.
All in all, I’m pretty happy with the room. It’s nice having a place to sit around and watch TV. Yeah, I would like wood floor too but right now, everything seems to work pretty well together.
