WW: Room {Linky}

I've been fairly busy.

Our old loveseat that we had, for cough 17 or so years was ready to retire. We heard a snap, when one of us sat on it. It had stains that I washed out many, many times. The velcro was coming off, so the cushion wouldn't stay put. We gutted it! Nothing in our house is every easy. Most people would just throw it on the side of some dumpster, somewhere. Travis wanted the pieces. I only cared to get the furniture tacks.

Good-bye Loveseat:

Sure enough it was a piece of wood that snapped.

Pay attention to the green shelves. I repainted them!

Hello Chairs:

I really wanted another loveseat. We are a family that loves shows and movies. Laying down is well...awesome! 

BUT we had a horrible time finding what we wanted. Travis wanted to be able to sit in whatever we bought. I'd find things online, but he couldn't sit in them. I finally saw our seats at The World Market. It was the Bohemian Style I was looking for, we both liked them, and they were 50% off. The sucky thing, they weren't a loveseat. I'm going to have to find a way of making poufs or footstools. We're already missing laying down. 

We were going to place the chairs next to each other, but changed our minds. Here's the chair Travis designed, next to one of the other chairs. I repainted the green shelves. 

I found a pillow that has sections just like Travis' chair.

Here's a better look at the shelves I painted:

Lots of stripes like the chairs have. Last coat of varnish! 

Travis put in the loveseats's furniture tacks. It sounds easier than it was. That wood was hard! He had to pre drill holes, to get them in. 

Then his sculpture went on top.

Here's the other side of the living room. 

The leather couch has furniture tacks too! We got an off white pillow that has the same pattern as the red one. The other bohemian case is new too. 

See the Cheez-It trunk in the back? I got that filled with products to review a long time ago. It's such a cool trunk. I love Cheez-Its, but I'm thinking about repurposing that. I want to have a board cut bigger than the trunk, add the red fabric from Travis' chair (he had extra), stuff it with batting from the loveseat, and screw the board on up through the bottom of the top. I'd have to add sliders, or wheels on the bottom. 

Sunny approves! The kids prefer to lay on the couch. 

Do you like ottoman's, or poufs better? 

If you're like me, and have no idea what a pouf is, here they are:

Poufs look cozier, but some ottomans can store things. Whatever I end up with I'll probably make it. Poufs and ottomans are just as much as the chairs! The Cheez-It trunk gets repurposed, for Travis' chair.

Ahh, that's a pouf. I think I saw one on a game a play on my phone which is basically trying to redesign a house. I LOVE the chairs and haven't gone to World Market in quite awhile. I do remember some pretty cool things there. Fantastic job on painting the shelves.

I'm not sure if my comment was published or not, been one of those days. Anyway love the chairs and the job you did on the shelves is fantastic. I am a disaster with varnish.

You have been busy and love the chairs. Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a wonderful week.

I'm an ottomans person, but the kind that you can put stuff in for sure. Love your chair. Looks really comfy and your shelf end table you did a great job. I don't like plain ones you gotta have a little design on it for sure. Thanks for sharing!

I love the chairs you picked! Great job on the table too. I like how you repurposed things from the old love seat.

We bought big foam bags for laying down in the basement/television/game room, so I guess I'm more of a poof girl. (like this https://www.amazon.com/Chill-Sack-Bean-Bag-Chair/dp/B00P21SVFI/ref=sr_1_30?keywords=foam+bag&qid=1580267426&sr=8-30)
