Living Room: Update

"after" but more like "in progress"

As you may remember from this post, I've wanted to change the TV situation in my living room for quite awhile. It may have taken 4 months, but I've finally begun the process and purchased two pieces for the living room (and given away the old Ikea piece). The bookcase is from Crate and Barrel, but I got it for over 50% off at an outlet store, and the dresser is an antique from the early 1900's that I bought at the Chelsea Antique Garage. As a side note, the Antique Garage is quickly becoming one of my favorite places and I've found some pretty amazing deals there, so if you're near NYC, go!

While far from done, hello crazy picture hanging out in space in the top right corner, the change is already making me so happy. The room feels instantly bigger and brighter, a huge thing in tiny NYC apartments, and I can't wait to style all those shelves (and maybe buy a thing or two for them too, of course ;). I'll be sure to share pictures once it's truly done, and maybe even a whole apartment tour, but for now, these in process pictures will just have to do.
