Living Room Updates – End Table Styling

Thanks to BHG at Walmart for sponsoring this post.

There’s been quite a few changes around here lately. My house has been in a constant state of musical furniture as we purge and refresh. Anyone else going through that right now? We finally bit the bullet and bought the IKEA Ektorp sofa after a long debate and sofa searching. I can’t tell you how happy I am that we finally went through with it. The gray sofa gives a whole new feel to our living room

I wanted to share with you the updates we’ve made in the living room to give the space more rustic charm, making it feel much more inviting.

You might remember the red coffee table cart from my Christmas home tour, it’s totally different now! I loved that thing – I got it for just a few bucks months ago and had always planned on painting it white – so glad I did because it has such a crisp and clean look now. Also, I love the contrast of the wood against the crisp white.

I’m also enjoying the never ending art of end table styling. The second I laid eyes on this sea glass lamp it gave me heart eyes. The lamp, in combination with the linen lamp shade, total perfection in my book.

Also while browsing Walmart.com I came across this vintage inspired table top clock. It reminds me of one that my Grandma has at her house. I’m one of those crazies that loves the sound of a ticking clock. It’s so soothing to me. Another thing to add to my “weird” list πŸ˜‰

I love how little updates can change the whole feel of a space. The gray sofa, and the calmer color palette makes this space much more of a retreat to me.

It’s got just the right amount of rustic charm to satisfy my vintage loving soul.

  1. My style..hmm..Farmhouse,Eclectic,Industrial with a little bit of Glam sprinkled in.:) My motto live with what I Love and for a long time I was Matchy Matchy..and then I let go! Love Your blog and Style..Thanks for the Inspiration. Smiles.Cindy

    No instagram yet..

  2. My decorating style is very DIY and chic. I LOVE Ikea (love the ikea workspace blog btw, I have that desk!). Of course I’m on a budget so anything that I can find at stores like Wal-Mart or Target is GREAT… as well as thrift shops, antique shops.. I love vintage ANYTHING.. but when I re-did my office I had a more modern vintage feel. The rest of my house is country-vintage πŸ™‚

  3. I am totally with you! I’ve got a clock in my living room with no Facebook. It’s only purpose is to make ticking noises!

  4. Love your new sofa! I’d say my decorating style is Farmhouse/Rustic Glam. I just tend to add a bit more color than is usually associated with that style. But I love me a farmhouse table and chairs with a blingy chandelier, everything chalkpaint and mason jars, and a bold mix of new and old pieces. πŸ™‚

  5. Love all your changes! Such a beautiful space. And I would describe my decorating style as beachy casual glam πŸ™‚

  6. I love the cooler palette you chose….my favorite color is turquoise so I try and add that color into my scheme….I also love grey. I would say my style is a mix….I like changing things up as I feel.

  7. Love this look! Great inspiration for my living room…I have the Ektorp couch too but in tan..wanting to buy grey soon!

  8. Chelsea, I LOVE the sofa!! I have been drooling over the Ektorp for a few years now- I would love to get the sectional. Our sofa just about looks ready to be retired…. and you have inspired me even more today. I LOVE the lamp too- our wooden thrift store lamp just ‘exploded’ the other day when we turned it on (well, not exactly exploded, but there was a loud burst and then it wouldn’t work). A little scary – so I guess I am in the market for a new one!! lol. I will have to check Walmart!

  9. I honestly do not know how to describe my decorating style. I don’t think I really have one lol..it’s a ME style just use what ever it is I like that matches my color scheme.

  10. Oh….I would have to say my style is a little bit of everything! I love the modern rustic style, but also love the more contemporary!

  11. I love the updates, Chelsea! The lamp is definitely my favorite part… gorgeous!
    I’d describe my style as “beachy chic”. πŸ™‚ Thank you for the chance to win!

  12. I would say I am basically country. I love the farmhouse look and try to make each room look “old” in some way or another.

  13. What great changes! I love that sofa. Seems like a lot of us do! (I’m whispering……turn that lamp shade around so the seam is in the back. OK, I feel better. thank you for letting me tell only you that.)

  14. I would describe my decorating style as functionally chic. I love cute things, but I need my spaces to help with productivity (to keep my sanity haha).

  15. mmm…I’d have to say I tend to have a Southwest or Central American flare to my decorating. I love bright, happy colors and most of my items come from Guatemala or Mexico (hubby is from there, and I visit the markets when we spend our summers there!)

  16. Wow, your living room is looking so pretty, Chelsea! I would never guess that vintage looking clock is from Walmart. Thanks for sharing!
    Hugs, Jamie

  17. I love the mix of gray, white and rustic wood. I have introduced a few wood pieces like that into my living room. Adds just the right of natural touch!

  18. About 30 years ago, I had one of those glass lamps, homemade and you could put fish inside! As I tired of it, I threw it away!! DARN! Now I would like to use it!!!

  19. Hi Chelsea, this might have been asked several times already — but where did you get that gray sofa?? I loooove it! πŸ˜€

    1. Hi Mel – the gray sofa is actually the IKEA Ektorp with the gray slipcover. I’m now using a white slipcover for it. I love that you can switch it out.

    1. Hi Erin, it’s a DIY that never made it onto the blog. Would you be interested in the tutorial? If so, we can probably whip that up in the next couple weeks.
