Living Room Reveal

Yeah!!!! finally have the living room put together to show you.  It is still a work in progress with me changing things up in here but you can see how the living room is coming along.



I stayed with my neutral love.  Dove grey, whites and a little cream.  The wallpaper added a little yellow into the cottage style living room.




I am so happy I had a wall big enough in this tiny home for the old farmhouse window I had in the old house.  This is my favorite chippy piece.    Peggy was assisting with this picture!!



I took some old end tables my daughter had in her basement and painted them white and added old chippy door knobs to this door.  You know how I love to recycle old things into new things!





My chippy old arch window fit in this space perfectly.

My bargain armoire I just re loved fits nicely in the living room space.
My old french window found a place.






My great grandmothers old cedar chest is now my coffee table in the new house.  Back in the day when you got engaged to be married you would get a Lane cedar chest.  Then you would use these cedar lined chests to add gifts, new linens etc. to bring into your marriage.  This usually was the first piece of furniture you brought into your home after you were married too. 
So there is a peek at the new living room in Junk Chic Cottage III

Have a great Friday and wonderful weekend.
Hugs,
Kris

    1. Hi Betty,
      No complaints. He is a trooper with my white femine decor. He does have the whole downstairs and his fireman cave so that gives him he style and space too. So it is a win win. I have this upstairs in my style and he has the downstairs in his style. Happy Friday.

  2. Kris, The wall paper is so soft...it looks great with all your whites and neutrals. I love how you have make a small room look so much bigger with your "storage" pieces. I think night stands make great end tables too. I do love the cornices. You've been a busy lady. Blessings to you and Terry. xoxo, Susie

  19. What a pretty living room, Kris! I love the wallpaper, it's beautiful and really anchors the room. And Miss Peggy coordinates nicely too!! Love your great grandmother's hope chest, it looks right at home:)

  20. Kris, It looks fantastic. You got a lot of oomph going on in that room. What it lacks in size you make up for in charm. You pulled it all together beautifully. Have the neighbors been peeking in your windows yet? I love that you put the wallpaper up on the one wall-it is just enough to be interesting without overpowering the space!

    Miss Peggy makes me smile...I bet she is a love to live with. xo Diana

  24. I am so happy for you, Kris. You truly have made a cottage of your home. THis room looks terrific, and I am loving the accent wall with the hint of color. Very pretty. Peggy was looking at you like, "What are doing? Are you standing on the couch taking a picture? Does this mean I can stand on the couch too?" lol Have a great weekend. No lollygagging in the basement - just work, hahaha!

    1. Hi Rachel,
      If you are asking about the wallpaper I got it in a wallpaper wholesale shop near my home. There was no information on it. They have what they have in the bins and when it is sold it is gone. So I am not sure how old or what brand this even is. So sorry. I just liked it when I saw it and thought it would be perfect for this wall.
      Sorry I cannot be of any more help.
      Kris

  42. All week long, I was wondering... what is Kris doing today? How is her living room coming along? I could hardly wait to see!!! And what a reward to see it and how you've been able to bring in some of your favorite pieces from your original cottage! I do LOVE that wallpaper with the touch of yellow.. hard to tell it's yellow in the picture, but I remember seeing it awhile ago when you were asking us which one you should go for and I think most liked that wallpaper with the yellow. I do too.... it's all so fun and whimiscal and calming and lovely. We see it in the blink of an eye, but we have to realize how much work you've put into it. Love your style.. I don't think my hubby would go for almost all white.. I tried in this little house we moved to, but color keeps getting added back in.. he keeps buying pictures for the walls (that I don't just LOVE) or he'll buy a new (old) chair that is some color that doesn't match anything! I keep buying white or cream throws so I can toss them over the chairs! Have a great Sunday! Marilyn

  43. Hi Kris! Your new living room looks lovely! I'm so happy that your favorite pieces have fit in beautifully! Look at cute little Peggy the photo bomber! She looks right at home. I really like how your chair and armoire create a little foyer by the front door! Everything is just perfect! So happy for you! Hugs!

  44. Looks wonderful with all your architectural pieces. Love your Great Grandmother's cedar chest and that you still have it. The cushion with the birds is sweet. Your floors are a nice contrast to the neutral colors. Coffee in the morning is a pleasant experience in this sweet room.

  46. Kris,
    Your new living room is divine! All of your wall decorations seem to have found perfect places on your new walls! The Lane chest is a beautiful focal point. My grandmother gave me a Lane chest when I graduated from high school. I love it. Mine is dark pine....I do love your white one! Hope you are enjoying this beautiful
    Space!
