Living room checklist

As some of you know, I am a real list person, and checking things off my lists just gives me a real thrill.
A couple of weeks ago, I posted our living room moodboard and about our trip to IKEA to pick up a couple of things for our same new home (a couple, a.k.a. 100€ spent!).
On this trip to IKEA we managed to scratch a few things off our things-to-buy-for-the-living-room list. Let's see how far we got:
- sofa
- white curtains
- white LACK coffee table
- blue and cream cushions
- throws (blue, cream)
- coasters
- decorations for TV furniture

But to make the living room more "ours" and less "theirs", there are other things that have to be done besides a bit of window shopping. 

Things that have to be done:
- upgrade TV furniture, by moving things around and putting new things up
- change pictures on wall, find somethign more "us"
- buy new LACK coffee table
- move furniture around
- change curtains
- paint moldings and walls

So you can all get a better idea of what we want to do with the room, here is a round-up in this horrible before picture (you see what we have to work with?)

Luckily for us, none of things on the to-do list are very difficult, just a matter of moving things around a bit. Unfortunately, we won't be getting round to any of it until after Summer is over...But anyways, I is sure it is gonna be worth the wait!!
