Living Room in Full View

I provided bits and pieces of my living room, now I am showing you the full view.  What I love most about the room is the checkerboard floor.  I removed old green carpeting and found a better quality plywood underneath (although I was hoping for hardwood floors).  Since there were no splinters or rough spots, I decided to paint it. I painted the outside perimeter black and then painted the middle of the floor white and then added the black squares.

Of course, the black and white dictated the color scheme for the rest of the room.  I love ironstone, white bird houses, vintage signs, and anything with a nice graphic quality.  I have a mixture of Ikea, flea market and Ethan Allen furniture.  The bookcases were built by my father and have followed me to every home.  I hope you enjoy the tour...

Mini Tour - Living Room

I am featuring a mini view of some of the vintage items that reside in my living room. I will show the full view at a later date per encouragement from Jan at Gracies's Cottage. It's obvious that I love the graphic quality of black and white. Stay tuned for more photos.
