My Home Renovation: The Study

So I haven't done a post in a while due to the fact that I just bought a new home. A three bedroom with a basement that has an additional room that could be a master. It's been rough moving in (and fun at the same time) as the house was a foreclosure and empty for over a year..which means I had to do a ton of cleaning and updates to the electric and plumbing. I finally got my electricity turned on so now I'm back to blogging :) I've got tons of projects I've got to tackle so I'll be posting before and after photos of my progress.

These next shots were taken of my study. Most of the items were purchased at IKEA and the curtains were given to me by my Mom which she bought at a thrift shop. The floral piece was also given to me by my Mom and is something I remember having in our home when I was a child. I'm going to spray paint it white except for the flower buds which will make it pop against the yellow wall. Also threw in one of my little man enjoying his new

Liam loves his new room :D
This is the new couch I got. It's sooo soft and looks expensive, but wasn't :)

Fabulous sofa, where did you score this piece?

Value City Furniture actually. I think I paid a total of 1300 including tax and a 7 year warranty plus scotchgard. There is a matching chair that goes with it as well. :)

No wonder Liam was laughing in the picture while he was playing inside his crib - because the room looks fascinating! =) That yellow wall brings a sunny, bright atmosphere to the room, and the furniture make the room look so cozy and warm! It’s so welcoming!
