Livingroom BEFORE

This afternoon I have taken some quick shots of our livingroom BEFORE we begin to make some decor changes & add our Ikea finds from yesterday [see Ikea finds here] to our livingroom.
Enjoy.

As promised [from "clutter bug" post] here is the BEFORE:
 
The couch is the first thing you see as you walk in our apartment door. The art framed above our couch we bought after our wedding as our "first" real art piece from a local photographer that takes photos in Detroit and handcolors them. The one on the left is the Detroit Train Station in 1930-1940 & the other is the Detroit skyline along the Detroit River in 1930-1940.
our tv is on the same wall as the front door. oh, i almost forgot we bought a photo ledge for above the tv -- i think we're going to showcase our family wedding photos & we need a clock. the two shelfs above the tv i'd like to put decorative printed boxes to store randomnesses that appear to have no home.
the brown stand was a steal that I found at a garage sale for only $3 it holds our dvd collection - one of these weekends we're going to paint it..either white, black or (Rick thinks) grey. p.s. i cannot wait to mount our tv so we can close the drawers below.

"the blank wall" we are working on :cleaning: my desktop off to give it to Rick's parents & we're putting my desk in storage since we never use it. once we get that done we'll have "the blank wall" which i'd love to eventually buy a printed chair to add some pizazz to our livingroom. & as for the wall we'll be putting the tall photo we bought at Ikea (shown in THIS post) as well as hooks, & finally some of our favorite photos we have taken in Detroit over the years.

I'd love to hear what YOU think - if you have {any} thoughts, ideas, comments SHARE with me. :)

♥ Love. Erica
