Man, we are in a deep freeze but that hasn't stopped me from painting the living room... again.

But in my defense, I "had" to. ((giggle)) Actually, I finally got rid of the sofa my hubs picked out 5+ years ago. I "lovingly" referred to it as "the gigantic, brown turd in the living room."
Don't get me wrong, it was comfortable. But it was waaaay too large for the size of the room and it did not go with the look of our late 1800's farmhouse. At all.

So I (ummm) "we" did some furniture shopping. We ended up picking out two over-sized, cozy (colonial style) wing back chairs. I must give credit to my hubs for suggesting wing back chairs. I was going to go with a wing back sofa. They are made by Lancer AND they are made in the good ol' U.S.A. Woo-hoo!!

My sweet hubs also suggested the blue star fabric!! Shhh... He would be mortified if I mentioned his fantastic eye for decor. ((hee hee))

If you've never stopped by my dear, talented friend Carol Roll's Etsy page, you must! I have a wonderful collection of her little imps.

I am still changing things on the walls. I'm driving my sweet hubs crazy but hey... he married me. **snicker**

Stella is still a little unsure about the new chairs. I know she misses sitting on the back of the gigantic, brown turd and looking out the window.
Oh well...

Hey Peanut your furniture looks great! Your home is so lovely and Thank you for the kind words!! I enjoy your work in my home as well!

The older my bones get (and the wider my butt gets), the bigger and softer I want my furniture. But the room is too small and I don't like the style. So I continue to fit my large seat onto a small seat.
