Baby Steps in the Livingroom

Yes, just baby steps, I found out that’s how it has to be done to get the look that I’m aiming for! Love Pottery Barn  a whole bunch as I know some of you do too! Oh, my though it can be expensive, our nearest PB is about 40 miles from here and unfortunely no Pottery Barn Outlet close either. So I haunt their online store and go right to their sale section to drool plus I get their catalog to read from cover to cover also. Here is my livingroom so far:
PB coffee table, thanks Craigslist and PB pillow cover for $14.99 online. I’d love a new sofa and I’ve been looking for months just waiting for a good deal to come my way. It’s over 10 years old and it’s time for a change I think and something else for above the couch I’d like too…but I have to remember “baby steps”.

We just painted our fireplace white this year and love it.
As you can see my livingroom is one long room that includes the diningroom!
PB’s leather chair, even on sale was just to much so I bought the Target one they had on sale one week.
Here is a better pic…I use old or neat looking bottles too for decorating.
This is the view coming in the front door.
Into the kitchen.
As a side note I can’t believe it’s coming time to close the pool soon, love it on a sunny day like today!
I hope you have a wonderful week ahead and as always thanks so much for stopping by!
I’ll be partying at these great blogs:

I love the changes you made to your living room. Painting the fireplace white was a great idea. It really brightens your home. Have fun relaxing in your pool!

Rondell- It looks fabulous! You have done a great job and it is very PBish looking. It is hard to close up a pool, isn't it? Then you know summer has really come to a close- xo Diana

So neat to see how your living room is laid out. I had no idea the dining area was connected to your den. I get the baby steps stuff so much. The great thing is you actually know what you want, so that' s a major step IMOP! It's looking great!

I agree...the baby steps you've done look great!! I do know how you are feeling...I'm having to do baby steps with changing my decor too. I hope to have a garage sale after the kitchen is done and then I can use what I make from that to get some new things.
Have a great week.
