Making Some Changes
So. It's been over a year since my last post. Not that I haven't had anything to post about. I mean, come on, I have 3 children, a husband, wonderful family and awesome friends. There's ALWAYS something to post about. Anywho. Instead of going back and trying to remember details of so many fun things my family and I did since my last post I'll just start from the big project my husband and I completed in this new year. The picture on the left is the "Before" picture of our living room. The picture on the right is the "After".
In the span of 4 hectic, messy, dusty, late night, debris filled weeks Charlie and I were able to soften up the look and feel of our living room. Going from bold and in your face "Fabulous Red", a tiled corner (where a wood stove used to be), laminate wood flooring and a large area rug to a warmer and more neutral wall color, crown molding and carpeting. We DID use some of the old laminate flooring for the entry of our house as a place to take off shoes and not muck up the new carpet as quickly.
I'm THRILLED with the new look and our friends and family who've been over and remember the "old" look have been very complimentary about the 'new' look. It really feels like we've got a new house. We also renovated our kitchen in the same 4 weeks we redid our living room, but, that's the next post :)
