Have I shown you all the "before" photos of the living room, yet? I can't remember if I've posted it. Well, at any rate, I cleaned it today and figured it was a good chance to get some photos up. On any given day, if we aren't in the kitchen, we're in this room. It's where the books are, after all :)
It's the room you see straight ahead as you come into the entryway through the front doors. Right now, we've done absolutely nothing to this room except for putting our stuff in it. The previous owners had replaced and painted the trim in the main level rooms and this pale yellow wall color hasn't been too hard to live with for the last 10 months. We figured we'd wait to paint until after the new windows go in. Curtains are coming, too. Even with the hodge-podgey furniture in here - thrown together from the move - paint, curtains, and new windows are going to make it look so much better.
I honestly don't mind this room the way it is right now, though. It's comfortable and cozy. The view is lovely. The light is good (in the morning, especially). It's pleasant. But, it will be even more of all of those things when it's a little more put together. I think we're going to really love it when it's done.
That last one is my favorite :) I'm not sure when we're going to be getting to this room. Painting the floor is going to be a BIG deal. Not sure if you can tell in these photos, but it's really in bad shape in places. At the very least, we'll be getting the curtains up before Christmas. This is where our tree goes, so I'll show you the tree and the new curtains later this month!
That's exciting :)
