Bryce and I are slowly adding little things to the living room. We got rid of our TV and stand - the TV was broken and we hardly used it. A friend picked up a few items at Ikea for me this fall. I love the expedit bookcases and coordinating bins, which we are using to store DVDs, games, my workout stuff and, later, kids toys. It also provides a place for (our growing collection of) children's books, which I wanted to have low and accessible in the living room.
A friend gave us a large, canvas world map that we hung in the living room in place of the TV. Bryce has been wanting one for a long time. Oh - and the leather chair we found on craigslist. The matching chair is up in the nursery/guest room.
Just keeping it real. That's where Bryce's stuff usually sits when he comes home from work.
