The Big Reveal!!!

Before...


During...

And finally, AFTER...
That monster over there is a corner computer armoire that works so much better in this space than the old big box we were using. The old piece was smaller than this one but because it didn't nestle up into the corner, it took up more floor space than the new one.
This desk was retrieved from the spare room and fits perfectly over here bathed in the light from the window. It's useful in holding our school supplies and allowing for a place for someone to do some alone work if they need to. Eventually, I'd like to replace the table with a round one that has two leaves so that we can adjust the size according to our need.
The couches were put back in the same places but the uncomfortable overstuffed cushions that pushed you forward no matter how much I let my children jump on them to flatten them out are gone and replaced with some flatter ones we had in the playroom. These pillows knew how to cave to my sweet little bundles of outside force. I put a clearanced slip cover on the loveseat to see how it would look and Husband liked it so it stayed. I'm not worried about finding one for the sofa. We aren't sure if it's staying.

There are still some things to do but they are minor. This room needs some splashes of color and I have one great big wall that is in desperate need of a visual breakup. Stay tuned for Part 2!
