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.

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

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

  2. I love the changes! The room looks so chic now. Good job girl ... err ... woman! :)

  3. How lovely everything looks! Great job with the changes! I love them! Change is always good!

    a fresh coat of paint does wonders for a room.

  6. Ooh...I really love the color. Its kind of a slate blue. I'm not usually a blue person ...tho I have it in my bedroom... it has to be a slate-ish tint. Congratulations.... room really looks nice:)
