Project by: Brittany and Justin
Location: Springfield, Missouri

The TV room in our 1930 bungalow is the room in the house that gets the least amount of natural light, so we wanted to create a bright space with a colorful touches to hang out in the with our three chihuahuas.

The previous owners had installed several built-in pieces—including a desk, shelving, and a decorative room divider—so we started by clearing the room. When the room divider came down, we found that the floors had been refinished around it, so we refinished them again ourselves and stained them lighter to play up the great original hardwoods.

We then painted from baseboards to crown molding, opting for a warm off-white (Valspar Lovely Bluff) for the walls. We are avid thrift shoppers, so we furnished the room with mid-century and vintage pieces, all of which were found at flea markets, yard sales, or on Craigslist.

Brittany also made some of the decor items by hand, including the pillows on the couch and runner beneath the television.

We are especially proud of our gorgeous Broyhill Brasilia gentleman’s chest and Adrian Pearsall jacks side table.
