A few months back I had posted a living room design plan for my friend Heather. http://livingjoydaily.com/2016/04/06/design-plan-for-heathers-farm-house-living-room/ She and her fiancé had recently purchased a very old, yet charming, farm house in Wisconsin. She asked me if I could help decorate. It was an interesting challenge, since I wouldn’t be able to go to WI to help her. I based my design plan on the photos and video she provided me, as well as measurements. She has done a great job! I am impressed with how well it has come together. It was a true “design on a dime” project and so she needed to do a bit of the work herself in order to pull off this design plan. She hemmed curtains (or actually used iron-on sewing tape to shorter the curtains), chalk painted numerous pieces of furniture and decor items to make everything to match, and she had a wood piece cut for the mantle which she also sanded and stained. She put a lot of time and effort into this room, which hopefully will make it feel even more like a comfortable and welcoming home for her, as it was her efforts put into making it just right for her family. I think she did a great job!
Here is the before photo of the room:
The furniture she had for the room was a couch and a chaise. She had a dresser from another room that had no specific place in the new home and since she needed a stand for the TV, I suggested she use it in the living room, as it fit in the space well. Here are the before photos of the furniture:
Her mother than gave her end tables and a coffee table. Heather used chalk paint in the moss color I suggested (as it matched the curtains and pillows) to make the three furniture pieces from her Mom match nicely.
Here is the room before and after:
Below are the rest of the photos she sent of the completed room. Great job Heather!
