Are you all tired of our Living Room yet?
We’ve finally finished the piece that began this living room makeover: the great big, gifted, pine armoire. If you recall this is what we started with:
And then we made some small changes, like organizing the books, adding some blue and straightening up the shelves:
And then we revamped the coffee table:
And the armoire got painted a nice robin’s egg blue (a Behr colour match of a Beauti-Tone paint called Quayside 601-4):
But it still wasn’t quite right. We needed some new bling…er, hardware. We looked everywhere online and pretty much everywhere I could think of locally. It was much more difficult than I thought to find something that suited the armoire and the space. But finally we found what we were looking for at Lee Valley Tools.

Fortunately we live sort of near a store so I could satisfy my impatient nature and go and pick them up instead of waiting for them to be shipped. Yay! And my amazing hubby came to the rescue with drill in hand to put them on the doors and drawers for me.
So once again the before:
And…are you ready?
The armoire after (I’d love to not have the bookshelves, but we really need the storage):
So what you think of our mini makeover? I still have a few odds and ends to add, like a 50% off Goodwill lamp, which I will post about later. And we obviously have to redo the floors too, which will come as soon as we can do it. But it is much improved, yes?
