Updated Living Room Sneak Peek | dreamgreendiy.com + @article #gifted #OurArticle #BurrardSofa

As you might have been able to tell (although I don’t blame you if you didn’t), I added a couple of extra details to the room after the reveal went live last week. I like to take my time with room refreshes, swapping things around here and there until it feels just right, so I spent a few more days perfecting the room after those initial photos were snapped.

I later decided to hang a plug-in sconce by the chaise side of the sectional since there isn’t enough room for a lamp on the slim side table (which is actually an entry rack shelf). I found that I used the chaise pretty often for reading, but that the natural light wasn’t great over there by the evening. My new sconce is the perfect supplemental light when I want to kick back with a book. I also added a throw blanket and extra pillow for the same reason: cozy reading (and TV) sessions!

The Loloi rug and Juniper Print Shop art are easily tied for first in my opinion of “favorite details” in the room makeover. There’s no denying that rugs and art have the power to make or break a room, and our new additions really sealed the deal on this living space update.

I wasn’t sure that I wanted a rug at all in the room because, in the past, it has been really hard to find a rug that will lay flat over our wall-to-wall carpet, but this one from Loloi is the perfect fit. It hasn’t buckled or bubbled at all since I laid it down, which, I think, is because it’s a really thick printed design. It’s stout but soft all at the same time, and I absolutely love the earthy colors throughout it.

Aside from the rug, the new gallery wall of framed art pieces from Juniper Print Shop (and the digital print I used on our Frame TV pictured above!) instantly draw the eye. I decided to take down my old art ledge to create more of a traditional asymmetrical gallery wall, and I love how those three pieces fill the room with color and (dare I say it?!) even a bit of sophistication. We are very far from elegant people, but those beautiful art prints make us feel like we fit the part.

7 Ways to Upgrade a Plain Metal Shed

Ways to Upgrade a Plain Metal Shed

I’m extra excited to share today’s story because it was an especially fun one to produce and write (I’m new to outdoor DIY projects, so it feels really refreshing!), and it’s also been a long time coming since we started this project back in April. After deciding that we wanted to purchase a new ready-made shed for our backyard (full explanation of our big outdoor design plans here), John and I had no idea what we would find when we started looking around at the options. Of course, I had hoped that we would find something that was at least slightly pleasant to look at, but I’ll admit that I wasn’t expecting much. I figured we’d just have to make do with a really bland looking structure.

And my expectations were at least partially spot-on, as you can see in those photos above of the plain metal shed we ultimately purchased from Leonard USA. We had given ourselves a budget of $2,000, and managed to stay right under that figure, even with the small upgrade we added (a second window).

The place we ordered from had a whole range of color options for the metal siding, trim, and roof, and I think our out-of-the-box choices really helped give us a great starting point. We chose dark “Charcoal” siding and trim, and then black for the roof, and it’s safe to say that our shed looked nothing like the other plain white and silver-trimmed sheds on the manufacturer lot. So, that’s my first (bonus) suggestion if you’re looking for tips to make your shed look more custom: think outside the box with your colors! It didn’t cost us anything extra, but I think our modern color choices helped the shed look more custom in the end.

But, naturally, we didn’t stop there. To learn about all of the DIY upgrades I made to our shed, hop through to Hunker here. I wrote an in-depth article detailing the seven things I crossed off the list to give our once-boring storage unit some character, including a black door handle, new wood-look flooring (that took 30 seconds to lay down—seriously!), painting ideas, and lots more. Get the scoop this way, and let me know in the comments here if you have shed upgrade tips of your own to share.
