We also picked up a Hovas ottoman from IKEA. We considered buying 2 Karlstad foot stools, but it was too busy looking for my liking with all those legs. I like the 1 huge ottoman. It's a little strange that it's skirted and our Karlstad sectional isn't, so I have some tweaks in mind for the ottoman. Overall though, we LOVE this ottoman. It turns our sectional into the most comfortably huge sofa in the whole wide world. We often push it into the corner of the sectional so that both sides are touching the couch...so awesome!
I don't believe that I've shown our TV/fireplace wall as of late, so here it is:
Down the road, we'll add some built ins on either side of the fireplace and finish the fireplace off with some stacked rocks or some molding.
For awhile, we had an old 'kid' computer on this West Elm Parsons Desk (purchased for $50 on Craigslist). The computer broke. The desk stayed.
This desk was finished last fall during our big garage paint-a-thon. It was $20 from Craigslist. I painted it with Rustoleum's oil based paint, and we cleaned up the hardware.
The best part of our basement as of late, however, is the box that our ottoman came in:
We turned it into a school bus, and the kids can't get enough!!
