First of all, Happy MLK Day! I'm at work, but had to show you guys a little change to the Hamilton Living Room!
You may recall it looking like this.
Well, it's gotten quite the upgrade. Do you remember this piece?
My very first vintage furniture purchase and my prized possession.
Here it is in my very first apartment almost 5 years ago.
And here it is in our home in Missouri.
Well, when we moved to Memphis (and lost any real dining space), it was sort of tossed into the hub's man room and was left there to die. Here it is buried under every electronic known to mankind.
Another week in there and she would've been destroyed by the water rings from his beer bottles. So, she has been rescued! She's now safe and sound and the star of the living room.
She needs some new styling, but isn't she great!?! It took me a few hours to get used to seeing her in our living space, but I'm so totally in love with it now. Plus, I no longer have to worry about her demise by beer bottle water ring any more.
Now I feel the urge to completely restyle the entire space! Pillows, art, rug, accessories...I'm on the lookout for it all!
So, what do you guys think? Is this not the perfect place for my prized possession? Well, at this point, I don't think anyone could tell me any different. (c;
