Living room makeover in just two weekends

Here’s a white box, student grad house that used to look quite depressing and sad until someone decided to give it a makeover. You might think it’s difficult to start such a project on your own, but it’s simpler than it seems. For example, take a look at this living room. It got a brand new look in just two weekends and with no professional help.

All you need for this is a little imagination and creativity. In this case, the sitting area got a new couch that matches with the rest of the elements from the old design. However, it seems like the measurements haven’t been quite right because the couch is kind of oversized for that small space. Nevertheless, it was what the couple wanted: a big couch to cuddle on. And the cats seem to like it as well.

The room also got a new entertainment center. It’s not one of those heavy and big media centers because the space didn’t allow for something like that. Instead they improvised and created a series of storage shelves arranged around the TV. Notice the chandelier hanging from one of the top shelves. It’s an unusual place for a chandelier but this is how imagination works. The other shelves are filled with all sorts of treasures and memories and each one has its own place. Now instead of a sad and depressing room it’s a happy and cozy part of the house. We’re looking forward for the next renovation, maybe the bedroom or kitchen.{found on insideways}.
