I’m so terrible at sharing where and how and why I find some of the things I use in the rooms and projects that I share around here and you all are so good at keeping me on my toes with that! I seem to always be answering all of these individual questions about where to find certain things and what paint colors I’ve used, but I never actually get my act together and include them in my actual blog posts for everyone to access. I’m trying to get better at it!
I thought I’d sit down today and go through all of my sources for my new living room update that I shared here last week. This seems to be the perfect time to start this new habit because so many of you have enjoyed that post so much. Thank you soooo much for all of the great feedback on that one. It means so much to me that I can still manage to contribute a little bit of inspiration to the blogosphere even with our very much in-progress house. 🙂
Here’s the room we’re talkin’ about here:

The sofa table, coffee table, and TV cabinet were all built by Chris about 9 years ago when we had no furniture. The sofa and the chairs are from the same time period and are the same living room furniture we’ve had since we were married. A little paint and a few cheap thrills in the form of accessories really goes a long way!
I hope this list is helpful! Again, if I missed anything you want to know about, just ask! I love chatting with you. 🙂
