Living room corner makeover

It’s always interesting to follow the transformation of a particular room of the house and to see how it slowly becomes something different. In this case, we’re only going to take a look at one corner of a living room and see how it was turned from an empty space into a cozy and inviting space.

In this corner, all we have is a chair and some shelves. The chair is obviously the star but the bookshelves are beautiful too. Let’s start with the beginning. First, the shelves were taken out and the back of the bookshelf was taped up in order to paint it. This portion was painted the same color as the dining room in order to create uniformity and continuity. Then the shelves were put back on and the books were added. Even though the owner is not a big book lover and prefers technology, the books felt like a must-have for an inviting home. They also make a statement.

The chair from the pictures was a gift. The gesture was nice but even so the chair still needed a makeover. It was a simple project. The chair only needed a fresh coat of paint and some new fabric. It was painted black, a neutral and elegant color that matches everything. The green pillow which was then replaced with a purple one adds a touch of color to the corner and it also matches one of the book collections. The whole project was fun and not that complicated either.{found on htyh}.
