Lindzilla takes a living room from white and bland to blue and just a smidge nerdy #Decor & Decorating#before and after#living room#Southern homes#star trek#Texas#tile May 24 | Guest post by Sara Lindsay Remember Sara, of the heavenly laundry room redo? This is her living room makeover. Enjoy! — Cat Okay: the paint is fresh, which means we haven't been able to hang any art or photos. And we still have a few changes we want to make — a new mantle eventually, panel curtain set-ups framing the entryway and the dining room. Everything's always evolving, anyways, so you know. Change happens. But… I think she's ready to show off? Here she is in her before state — this was during the final walkthrough before we started the house-buying process: Related Post How to make a large L-shaped couch take up less space in a room My cousins recently moved from California to Texas. They say "everything's bigger in Texas" but that wasn't true for their living room. The large L-shaped... Read more Are you ready? BAM: Eventually we're going to get nice nice photos of Brutus & Tang to hang in the space above these stools. We FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY got to put our bookcases up! Super yay! These were our main living room tables for two years — now they're perfect nested as a side table and pulled out during parties. I AM IN LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE. Join our community!

It can be beautifully executed and in theory, they're just amazing. But can you imagine stumbling through the house at 3am in the dark for a glass of water and EEK INTRUDER ATTACK! Oh, wait. Nevermind. That's me I see. o_o Great call to cover it up (haha) and I LOOOOVE this blue. 3 agree Reply They actually removed the portal to hell that was hanging on the wall there. I know people have painted mirrors but I don't think it ever looks good. Reply Some people choose to just build a wall in front of it rather than removing it. I don't get the logic on that, but sometimes, removal means ripping out the wall anyway, so may as well leave it in case a future buyer wants it, I guess. Reply I am in LOOOOVE with your house!!!! and so terribly excited that other people paint their rooms nice strong and righ colors. I grew up in a very pale house…. 2 agree Reply I love the beams and the book shelves. Everything looks so inviting. The bold colors are fantastic. 1 agrees Reply I really, seriously, want the See No Evil… bookends. So bad. Any clue of a way for me to have those? PS: rest is fantastic, and leaves me with home-owning envy… soon, so so soon! Reply They're right here: http://www.logo-imprint.com/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=335387 but kind of expensive at $45. Reply I love bright colors on walls. I feel like I'm drowning in our ivory-walled apartment that we're not allowed to paint. SIGH. Also I love your taste in books. Speaker for the Dead = <3 <3 Reply I rescued Mists of Avalon from my mom's garage yesterday! i'm excited to start it…how funny to see it on your shelf. And Speaker for the Dead was a fav in HS. I have a feeling we'd be library buddies. Reply I love the blue! Can anyone tell me what brand and color that is? I'm seriously considering for my bathroom. 1 agrees Reply This makes me want a blue living room! Reply Tardis blue baby! love it!! 1 agrees Reply Love the room! I'd just like to know where you got the narrow media shelves. I've been searching for something like that FOREVER 🙂 Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
