Comfortable and Classic Living Room

An awkward floor plan — complete with posts and cinder blocks — is resituated into an elegant living room.

  • The homeowners are struggling to find a layout that works in this awkward living room.
  • Moving the furniture away from the posts helps open up and balance the room.
  • This seating area is cramped and distracting.
  • This space is still a seating area, but this chair makes it much more inviting and comfortable.
  • Copper paint gives the metal fireplace an updated look.
  • Stencils give the concrete floor a decorative touch.
  • A little burlap upholstery strapping and slipcovers turn old chairs into usable and stylish pieces of furniture. © 2010 Scripps Networks, L.L.C. All rights reserved
