Favorite Room Feature: Modern Jane

We adore Jane and her fabulous blog, and we know you will too! Her clean and timeless style is flawless and she is a great diy-er to boot! Thanks so much for sharing your fave room with us Jane! 


Hi Sadie and Stella readers! I'm visiting today from my blog Modern Jane and I going to share with you my favorite room in my home - my living room.

The first time I saw the house I was smitten with the large room and beautiful windows. Move in and I quickly saw the reality of what I was dealing with. Layers upon layers of wallpaper and an ugly brick fireplace (sticky from several coats of varnish and covered in dog hair).

Here are a couple of before pics from the first time I visited the home. 





Potential, right?
The wallpaper was removed, fireplace was painted (5 coats!), the floors were refinished and new windows installed. Then, the fun part! Decorating it :) Most of the furniture was thrifted, then painted or reupholstered. The back wall was wallpapered in a pretty geometric print and I still love it!


























It's become my favorite room because it light and bright and I spend most of my time there. I like looking around and realizing that it turned out nice and I didn't really spent all that much on the finishes. I successful room on a budget if you ask me!

Thanks so much for having me girls! It was fun!
