Before and after

So, the never ending project of the living room is finally complete! (‘cept for maybe a few wall hangings, anyway!) So, here are some before and after shots.

The before photos were taken when we were having the home inspection done:


Here’s the after photo from a similar angle:


Another view:


…and after:


Though the curtains required more work than I had anticipated, I am happy with the results:


(note to self: either the curtains or couch need a little adjusting there!)

I posted earlier that I love, love, love the tables and entertainment stand we got:


These have an antique/worn look to them which will likely prove very beneficial in our house – the cats can scratch them and no one will ever know!

I also love, love, love the lamp I got for the end table:


So, there it is. The fruits of our labor. Its been a long time coming but I am very, very pleased with the end result.

Next up? The kitchen. Be back soon!

    Mary, may your “never ending project of the living” continues for a long long time!

    Wow. What a bit of color can do. I’m so afraid of color! I have such a small, dark house that I just wouldn’t know what to do. Yours looks lovely.

    Very nice Mary! I like that lamp, too! When can we hire you and hubby to do our kitchen?

    I like the new decor. The green color for the wall looks awesome.
