Living Room Inspiration

Pretty sure it has been established that I LOVE pinterest! 
As I am in the process of redecorating my living room Pinterest has been there to help me through it, because we all know once you have children your brain sort of goes a little coo coo! So I have a little something to help me remember the things I see!
I posted a few days ago the dresser I found… you can find it here. This dresser will be my new TV stand! 
and I want it to look a little something like this

My Annie Sloan paint is supposed to come in today and I am super excited! 
Now, as for the colors of my living room, I am thinking of going with something like these

I am leaning towards the first one… what do you think? 
Here is a living room I found with these type of colors. 

Not crazy about the paisley things on the wall, but I love the colors : ) 
I found a coffee table similar to this side table and this is EXACTLY the look I want! I can’t wait to get started on this!

Now for couches… If I just had some extra money lying around I would be these from pottery barn

So… since I don’t have money lying around.. I will settle for these from Ikea! Surprisingly they have gotten great reviews! I hope that stands true for me!

I haven’t looked too hard for fabrics yet, but I did run across this one the other day and I like the style of it. But I think it might be a bit too dark for the look I’m shooting for.

Anyways… now you know a little more why I LOVE pinterest so much! They even have this little button next to the things you pin so you can copy paste it right into your posts! 
I am really going for some lighter colors. My husband and I have only been married for 5 years and the majority of our stuff has been given to us or we bought because it was really cheap. So I have ended up with a ton of dark wood furniture and an overall dark house… I need some color and some light! Unfortunately I will have to go a while with a living room and a dining room that are visible from each other and won’t match an ounce, but I have to start somewhere.
Baby Steps!
Plan for today (assuming my paint does in fact arrive):
Paint my dresser so I can put a TV back in my living room because my son is dying to play Wii! 
Don’t forget to stop and check out my Craft and Tell Link Party!

    Love the colors and the room. And I can't wait to see how your furniture turns out. My hubby and I have been married 5 years as well and I am in the process of updating a 70s themed home – can you say PANNELING! – yup so I understand baby steps – wish you luck and thanks for stopping by. drop back anytime and follow my progress – I'm gonna do it all – if it kills me! Have a great day!

    I hope you are painting right now, because that taste of things to come, sure has me craving for more. Love the direction you are taking with your living room. It is going to be wonderful.
