After: The living room

This is looking out the front window, which is original to the house. Don't you love our chair? Our couch should be here next week. It is a beautiful sectional! We are tired of fighting over the chair. heehee
The front door is original to the house as well. The house was built in 1937, I believe. Notice the register is missing. I am painting them.
This is one of the built-ins. There is a matching one on the opposite wall. The stairs lead up to the attic where the boys' room is. The door you see is to Gracie's room. Pictures of the bedrooms and bathroom will come later. They are not picture worthy yet!!
This picture really dwarfs the size of the hutch. We have 10' ceilings in the entire house with the exception of the attic. As you can see things are not quite finished. I am still trying to figure out what to do with the walls. So, I was pretty exited when I stopped by The Inspired Room earlier this week. She is hosting a Fall Nesting Party this week, I am hoping for a chance to win one of the shopping sprees to HomeGoods. I am sure I could find something for my living room walls and even a throw pillow or two for my new sectional!! I am also trying to find something for the windows. I promise to post more pictures when the room is complete. Thanks for stopping by and if you are wondering what the before looked like please click here.

Looks FABULOUS!! What a great feeling to have so much work behind you and now onto the more fun "decorating" part - you have great ideas and I'll look forward to seeing how it all finishes out! : )

Nice blog…. It isn't easy to choosing that perfect Living Room Furniture. It needs to be ergonomically viable and superior when it comes to comfort.

I LOVE YOU said...
