Our living room is 90% completed! The painting is done. A few new pieces of furniture have been bought. A painting has been hung. We still have to add curtains. We still need to hang more art. But it is starting to feel like home!
Here is what our living room looks like today.
The picture below is a before shot.
The carpet was removed and hardwood floors were installed. The walls were a dirty beige and are now painted a sunny Belgian Waffle from Olympic Paints.
Remember the niches? I blogged about what to do with them, here.
Here is what they looked like before.
Here is what I ended up with.
A close up.
I placed a French countryside oil painting in the center, then added a plant, pheasant and some antique leather bound books on the shelf.
I like the way things are shaping up. So far I have painted the dining room (which I showed you a few weeks back), the hallway, the guest bathroom, the den/library and my office. I am currently painting the kitchen.
None of the rooms have been decorated. No pictures hung etc. That will come soon. When I get each room a little more complete I will share them with you.
Thanks for coming on my house whispering adventure with me!
edited to add: Maryaguer mentioned my lamp cords stretching across the floor. We are going to install floor outlets, like we had in our previous home. We had to wait to get the furniture layout right before we cut into the wood floors :-). That will be coming soon. As with any home remodeling project....one step at a time.
