Welcome to our main level living room right off of our kitchen. We don’t use it much except when we are entertaining since the TV and toys are in the family room downstairs.
Now don’t get me wrong, I actually really like coffee tables, end tables, and a few decorations…but see all of these little guys:
It was just too hard to keep it clean, unbroken, and everything in place. So for this season, we’ll keep the room a little more bare and when they are older, I can decorate a little more again!
This is the Palette Wood Baby gate that my husband built for us. It functions great and adds character to our home.
You can read about the construction process and find plans for it HERE!
You can read more about our fireplace surround at I Think We Could Be Friends, it is actually free palette wood, find the post here: Palette Wood Fireplace surround (seriously, did you ever think that free palette wood could look so good?!? You can see more pictures of the fireplace surround and about the process HERE).
There isn’t much in this room, but it fills up quickly when we have company and no one notices :)
Next is the kitchen!
