Purchases to Hide! Shhhhh!

Here's all of my ideas for our nearly empty Front Living / Dining. 

Just so we're clear...all of these things are "free"...wink wink...

I would show you pics of what the room looks like now, but there really isn't much to show because it's kinda empty. Especially since the Christmas tree is down.

There's lots of work to do and lots of secret shopping that needs to happen!!

Highest on my priority list is attaining at least one of these babies.....

I love her "dress" and I would totally put my kid on a leash if she didn't already have a hood to hang onto.

Don't you just love them??

Then, the harder part, which is attaining that slip covered couch.

"Couches" are a sore subject in my house because I MAY be addicted to purchasing them. AND there MAY be at least two of my previous couch purchases in the basements of people I know. They ARE being used though, so doesn't that count for something???

AND THEN there's our desk...
that my hubs and my dad built together, for me, the demanding designer,

...and I am tempted to change it. Slightly.

By darkening the stain to a black stain. This idea was surprisingly well received. Mainly because it's practically free. BUT I'm still scared to do it! What if I mess it up?!? We'll see if I can muster up some courage for the sake of my new living room design!

If you know how to go about hiding the purchase of a rather large, slip covered sofa, please let me know! I need all the help I can get!

AND if you see any of the above La Vie's for sale somewhere....PLEASE tell this girl!!

Have a Happy Friday!!


  1. You're off to a good start with your idea board! Can't wait to see it all come together!

  2. Fab plans!!!! I like the black and white scheme.

  3. I love your ideas! I wish I knew how to hide a large purchase cause I would do the same. :) I can't wait to see how things come together, I know it will be fabulous!


Please do...don't be shy now! I love to hear your thoughts.
