We made some changes to the living room. Again. So I thought I'd do a "living room through the ages" post.

Too bad for you, I never took a picture of the living room when there was a pool table in the middle of the floor instead of a couch.

When I moved in (but before Mike's furniture got the heave-ho and mine took over), it looked like this,
Then it looked like this,
This weekend we painted the back wall slate blue and the other walls a lighter color cream. Remember the pool table I mentioned? Well, through the years of Mike's prime bachelor-dom, the walls had fallen pray to many a blue-chalk fingertip and abusive pool cue. They were scarred with blue marks and scratches and needed a face-lift somethin' fierce.
We also painted the awkward wall between the dining room and living room to sort of tie it all together. It works really well. I wasn't 100% satisfied with the frames on the wall above the couch. I think they were too small for the space, so I spent some time on Monday evening rearranging.
(Instagram pic...)
I hung the mirror all by myself. I AM WOMAN.

Anyway. I love how the house feels when we finish a project. Next up? The front door and yard - I'd love to add some curb appeal to our little ranch-style corner-house. Then The master bathroom. Then the deck/back yard. Then the kitchen.

  1. We're getting ready to paint at my fiances house (that I'll be moving into). I'm not allowed to paint...(this is what happens http://littlelailalou.blogspot.com/2011/01/ive-been-busy.html)

    We're also getting ready to start a big bathroom remodel and then possibly the basement. EEk!
