Living Room


Well, I finally have some photos of the chairs with their painted legs and of a few other things we did to "spruce up" the living room. Eventually I would like to replace the legs on these chairs entirely but for now the paint and wax at least helps make them more appealing. I used Shenandoah Taupe by Benjamin Moore for the paint and then added some of Annie Sloan's Dark Wax over the top.  We also sort of got a new lamp. I actually ordered it for Jason's house back during our last Joss and Main event but on accident put in my shipping address (honestly, it wasn't on purpose!) and now I kind of want to keep it. =)


We also moved the large coffee table back into the family room and put this slip-covered ottoman back in this room.







I hope you all are having a lovely Monday!

  1. You have a lovely living room, Jennifer and I like your changes very much.

    So will you be hosting another Joss and Main event again? How does that work?

  4. Everything looks beautiful, as always! However, to be honest when I saw the lamp right away I thought the lines of it just didn't flow with everything else and it looks a little masculine, probably perfect for Jason :) Not trying to be negative, just sharing a design opinion, take it or leave it! You always do such an amazing job!!!

  12. I love your dining room, and every time you make a change, I love it even more! The legs go so well with the "accidental" lamp, which, by the way, goes very well with the mirror....just saying ;)

  13. Can't believe what a difference you were able to make in those legs! Great work.

  14. Can you do a tutorial for how you did the legs on the chairs? I have a sofa that has dark wood legs and a topper piece that I need to refinish and I want exactly the look you did!!! I hope it wasn't too hard :)

    1. It was nice and easy, Meghan! I just painted the legs first and then once they were dry I just used a paper towel (because I was lazy - I normally use a piece of jersey knit fabric) and wiped the the wax on and that was it!

  16. Ohhh, i'd forgotten that slipcovered ottoman - i really love it in the living room, and that striped lampshade, and lamp, yummy, i need to copy that idea. Love the mossy balls with the silver urns too... Always that touch of green that is sooo perfect with your decor.

  20. Hang on a sec...that slipcover looks different! Didn't it have ruffles before? And the fabric looks textured...??

    1. Haha - good eye. This is the original slipcover I made for that ottoman. I showed it way back a couple of years ago but the first time I washed it the pleats got messed up and I was way to lazy to iron them all out nicely again. Seeing how we had not used the ottoman in a while I somehow lost the other slipcover and had to pull this one out. I ended up stapling the pleated ruffle down though to avoid having to iron it. =)

  21. I tried to leave a comment to enter for the drawing, but it wouldn't let me. I ended up clicking on"I commented", which I didn't because I couldn't. I love your blog, your home, the photos you post and your products. I requested a "Silent Night " pillow for Christmas and was delighted to receive it! I absolutely adore the oversize growth chart, though my children are grown, the grandchildren would love it! I hope I am entered through my email.

  23. I looked at Joss & Main and was unable to find your lovely new lamp. Please help me figure out how I can purchase one just like it. Thank you!

    1. Joss and Main has sales that only last a few days so you have to purchase an item during the "event". You might be able to find the lamp on wayfair.com though!
