Sometimes when you are constantly working on your house, you don’t realize how far you’ve come. Our living room is not completely finished but it has changed so much in a year! I am really loving how this room is evolving.
Before we started the transformation this room was, well, BLAND!!!! We started our home remodel with our bedroom. This room sat untouched for quite a while. It lacked style and color. It was pretty much a blank slate. I remember just throwing some things we had on the wall just so it wouldn’t be so plain.
It’s come a long way. We’ve painted, made a library wall, did a lot of furniture makeovers and DIY projects, changed the light fixtures, changed the curtains and rug, and have added a lot of accent pieces.
There are just a few more things to do to finish out this space.
Living Room To-Do List
Replace the rest of the baseboards
Paint window wall
Reupholster fireside chairs
Reface fireplace & add mantle
Change out outlets & covers
No kidding, reupholstering the chairs is not something I am looking forward to. I have never recovered more than a chair cushion so I have a huge learning curve, but I am going to give it a go! I got the pair of chairs for $15 at Goodwill so I won’t be completely heartbroken if I mess it up! DIY is definitely a learn as you go experience in this house. I wish I could fly Jennifer from The Chronicles of Home over to hold my hand and wipe my tears as I try my own hand at reupholstering!
I also would like to thank Shannon over at Blogger Homes for featuring our living room. You need to check that blog out if you are a window peeper like I am! There are so many great rooms featured there!
I will be taking the 4th of July off to enjoy my little family! We have planned an outdoor movie night on our semi-pimped patio and the weather is so great right now. See you Friday!
