My funky new living room!

As you guys know, the hubby and I have been remodeling the house for a few years. We have this living area (that no one EVER sits in!) when you first walk in. It’s a fairly small area which is why we use the huge family room for actual living–but of course I want the first room people see when they walk in to be cool and funky and unique. Alas…this is what we’ve put together.

Please ignore the back door–we are replacing it, so the trim hasn’t been painted yet and the door itself is a nightmare. Also, the colors in real life are actually much more vibrant, but my camera has a light that automatically comes on when you shoot video so it washes it out a little.

Anyway, I just had to share. Where it was when I first met the hubby to where it is now is like being in an entirely new house (think 30 year old Salvation Army throwaways to funky mod).

Oh, and if you pause on the artwork at the end (some custom photography stuff I did) you can see the family and all our fun times over the last few years.

I hope you guys are having a great week! πŸ™‚

      • When some of them found out, they were like “I knew you were nuts!” and things of the like. πŸ™‚ I was soooo young when I was teaching them (6-7 years older than them) that I don’t think any of my behavior really shocks them. I remember coming in one day after being out all night at a concert and saying to my first class, “Do NOT fuck with me today I’m not in the mood.” And the kids were great! Benefit of being a young, kinda cool teacher. πŸ˜‰

      • Haha that is sooo cool πŸ™‚

        Reminds me of something I heard. Don’t know if it is true or not though.

        An ex-marine gets a job as a teacher and because he is an ex marine, he is given the toughest class. A couple of weeks before he is due to start, he injures himself somehow, and has to wear a torso cast. When he goes into school, he opens and window and sits down. The kids are all being noisy and ignoring him. The wind blows his tie away, so he picks up a stapler, and staples it to his chest causing absolute silence. He has no problems throughout the entire school year.

        Not sure how true it is, but I think it is excellent πŸ˜€

    • Thank you! I painted it and then lit it with a few different types of lighting–finally landing on flexible LED lights. I LOVE them, even if they were a TOTAL PAIN IN THE ASS to make work properly. Glad you like–I just go in and stare at the pretty colors sometimes (yeah, I’m a doofus!).
