Home Tour Continued ~ Our Living Room

A while back I started doing a 'Home Tour'....
During our 'spring cleaning' this week I worked on a way to display the children's artwork and photography and I wanted to share those pics with you. I also realized I never posted a 'After' picture of the Home Reserve Furniture so here goes...
The bookshelves are along the back wall of the living room.
Standing in the doorway from the back porch this is to your right.

and from the same point, this is to your left.
The huge, useless, monstrosity of a fireplace that I wish would just disappear overnight! I could sure use that square footage!

I just finished the top photo collage. It needs to be rehung higher but I just used a nail that was already there. I wanted to have photographs of the children's grandparents where they could see them often.
On the cabinet, L to R: Aunt Louise, my maternal grandfather's parents on their wedding day, Matt with Jenn and Landon, and a photo from our wedding with our parents (before the divorces).
In the frame, clockwise:
My mom with her red-haired grands, Elijah and Molly, Tony's grandmother, Grandma Alma and Grandpa Lonnie (Nissley), me and my dad, Tony's dad, Tony's mom and step dad and in the center Aunt Louise and Uncle Max.
Over the short end of the sectional.
I wanted to display the children's artwork and photography.
I really like how this turned out!
Here's a closer shot.
I have such talented children!

I hope you enjoyed your tour! Please stop by sometime, kick off your shoes and snuggle up on the sectional... MaryVance will bring you your favorite drink and we can visit!
