A multipurpose design offers a seating, storage, and snacking area all in just one living room. See how this room makes the most of its limited space.
The most important aspect of the makeover was to create a more livable room, with space to accommodate friends and family. To make the most of the home's long, narrow living area, the space was designed with multiple purposes.
A patchwork of reimagined accessories and DIY projects creates the living room's sophisticated mix.
Old bottles, twine, and fresh blooms combine to create an instant centerpiece. The best part: You can swap out the flowers for new ones and voila, a new color and look to your centerpiece.
Get this look in a weekend or less -- sans major power tools -- using purchased modular storage cubes or shelves and wood boxes found at discount and craft stores. Unify the disparate pieces with paint and connect with wood screws. Look for pieces the same depth for a smoother look.
A simple table and chairs creates the perfect spot for a board game or brunch. When entertaining, extra chairs add seating for guests and the tabletop serves as the perfect buffet for finger foods.
A pendant light grounds the space and was crafted from a repurposed tomato cage. Simple embroidery stitches dress up the pendant light.
Cozy up the corner with soft, decorative pillows. Easy-to-create felt flowers embellish this store-bought pillow. Cut flower shapes in different sizes from felt, then layer the petals and tack them together. As you sew each one to the pillow, bunch up the fabric to create blooms.
