Living Room Finale (11 months later)

This post has been in draft form for ohhh… 2 months! And we’ve already moved back to Texas! If you follow on instagram (thecraftblog), you saw the 26 hour road trip madness.  So, here’s the as done as the living room got before we moved out pics!

Decorating debacle: What would you do?

Our rental apartment, Sunny, is literally 3 rooms: kitchen, bedroom, living room (+1.5 bathrooms).

The dining room half is divided into 2 areas, the kitchen table and this weird little nook… I call it the bar/chatting with the chef nook, and it is super desperate. It’s a hodge podge of random pieces, including the free bar (Andy collected a lot of freebies before I moved to FL).
