So this is the way the room has looked since we've moved in. It's funny how long it took us to realize how bland the beige walls were! The light fixture was chosen months before the house was even framed and most of the ones we picked we've changed. But I liked the fixture in the living room with the exception of the colored shade which would cast a sickly yellow light when illuminated. Amazingly, we were able to find the perfect new glass shade so I was able to keep the fixture. The carpet will be replaced with wood flooring but that's not happening for a while yet. I know this pics aren't the best but I had to show you the bare bones of a room :) This first pic shows the blank wall where the mantel was put up and the pic below is the other side of the room.
Ok so here's the AFTER ...
Oh I just LOVE it! The little green chair is going to go; I brought it up from the basement to play around with the placement but another armchair will replace it once I get it. I still need wall decor and curtains but to see it this far along is so.darn.exciting!!! Gotta put in another pic of that mantel:
Here's a close up of the crystal lamps and the ceiling fixture:
And since I've gone pic CRAZZEEEE - here's a shot of the dining room too :) We still have to paint the trim in here, add wall decor, and curtains for the bay.
Ok, so that's all for today as I believe I have broke my own record for the most pics in one post :) I hope you have a great weekend!! Happy Crafting, <3 Lisa
