Update: Living Room

I thought I'd give you an update on our living room: Nothing has changed!

Except the lamp on the table. I showed you guys my rockin' awesome Crate and Barrel knock-off way back in February.

I did buy some drapes from Target, after seeing them here, but I just was not happy with the way they looked in our space. Obviously they are too short, but that could be remedied with some curtain clips.

The coffee table has got to go. I bought these legs from Ikea back in November with the intention of buying a slab of glass or acrylic to place on top. I thought it would lighten things up and get away from all the dark wood furniture we've got. Plus, neither of us are partial to that coffee table. And it's wobbly, so when the dogs bump it or you put you feet up it moves all over the place! Argh. I started pricing glass and acrylic last week (finally!). That sh!t is expensive! I think I need to just go to Rothman outlet, find a hideous glass 42"-48" coffee table for $100, and toss the bottom. Hmmm.

Does anybody have any experience with glass or acrylic table tops? We had a glass dining room table and it held up well, but I am not sure about coffee table height. Any horror stories, beyond smudgies?

I also haven't found another rug that I am willing to splash out for. I am thinking sisal or seagrass, but I don't know how they will hold up to the dogs rat-claws. Any advice or experiences on that?

O I love the layered curtains framing the area!
