Newlywed Home Tour: Formal Living Room

Here's a quick room-by-room tour, followed by some of the DIY projects. First up, Formal Living Room.

Note: Here is the "BEFORE" of the formal living room (our blank canvas).

And here are the "AFTER's":

My hubby and I also refinished a coffee table (originally dark brown wood transformed to this rustic piece below). Here are just a few pictures of the updated table. Check out tutorials on my Furniture Makeover page!

Here are a few more pictures. The baskets were painted to match the blue piece (below).

This grey shelf was also painted to coordinate with the room (it was previously black).

Adding a few floating shelves with coordinating decor finished off the room.
