My New Living Room, Guest and Craft Room

I'm so excited to introduce my latest furnishing and decorating project, my living room!
After going threw countless magazines and becoming a slave to pinterest I figured out the look I was going for. Then all it took was lots of DIY projects, I part time job surfing Craig's List and lot's of time. For those of you who have seen my old living room, this is the same couch. Its the pottery barn classic and it got a $45 make over with an Ikea slip cover. SCORE
I found this painting at a antique shop (more like a flea market type place than antiques) I got it for $130 and I'm in love with it. It's a local artiest and it reminds me of the foothills and Dish in Palo Alto.

 The picture on the left is my favorite on from our wedding. It's hard to tell but Rory just looks so happy to be with me and it makes me smile every time I see it.
 You know how I love my antique mirrors.

 I found these sterling silver chaffing dishes at good will for $10. I have never seen them for under 200.

 Yes I know, I know those are the stock photos that came with the frame. But I'm hoping that my talented friend Cassie will make silhouettes of my 4 children for the frames....
 I love this giant vase, it has such a chic 70's retro feel with a touch of Maria Antoinette.

 Found these at that same Flea market antique place $10
 My "M" wall finally found a new home.

If this doesn't inspire you to make something I don't know what does.
