Living Room Inspiration

I am excited about our bookshelves coming together (slowly) and decided since we are holding off on putting everything together I would get a good feel for the room and what I wanted to add or take away by putting it all together in a mood board. We already have some of the items, but for some reason don't want to put any of it out until its all done, is that weird? We have blanets (still in their packaging), frames, a rug, fabric for curtains, wall hangings etc just hanging out for a while until its show time.

Here is a run down of everything so far:

Rug: West Elm
Curtain Fabric: Ikea (still needs to be made- with new sew iron on hemming)
Wall Color: Valspar Cliveden Leather (already painted...YAY!)
Sofa Table: TBA...will probably be a DIY building project
Built-in Bookcases: ALMOST DONE! Big DIY project for us that's still underway
Mirror: Good Will find for $9!
TV Stand: Not sure about this yet...its just a photo stand in (Ikea)
Sofa: Pottery Barn Square Sectional

Here is our living room mood board!

I seriouly can't wait until everything is all there! We basically took everything out of the room when we painted and other than our old couch, loveseat and TV...nothing has retunred yet. Its still a work area so to speak with the tools and such from building the bookcases. We have lots of things that will be displayed on them too and I am Pinterest hunting for different ways to arrange books and such so that it looks balanced, lived in and pretty to look at!

We had some delays on our couch that was originally from West Elm....ehhem, they discontinued it! We didnt find this out until about a week ago...but no worries, we found a replacement. It just wont be here until March 27th (at the latest). I am really hoping it doesn't take that long since we ordered our first couch back in November during a Black Friday sale.

I will definately share the process as we go forward with our living room makeover! I am thinking its about time to tackle those no sew curtains!
