It is wonderful having the crunch time of company coming over!! We have all done it,,,,frantically tried to finish up those last little projects that you have been procrastinating on. Decorating for Christmas this year has been a lot of fun, reno is 99.9% done and the pictures are being hung where they should be staying for awhile!
A quick tour of the living room today, and I hope you enjoy the before and after shots. The before pictures were taken the first time we went through the house, so they are not the greatest, but you will get the idea.
This is the first room you see when you come in the back door and are standing in the kitchen
Looking into the kitchen.
So happy with the results ! New paint color throughout the house is Grey Owl by Benjamin Moore, new flooring, a total kitchen reno which is definately the heart of this open floor plan. Will post more on the details and a full kitchen post soon!
Some decorations in the living room.
Darrell's Industrial Farmhouse looking table that he made out of odds n ends from shop.
Check out Karianne over at Thistlewood Farms for the best in the industrial farmhouse look!
Don't ask me what all the medal parts are from but this one of a kind table
fits perfectly in this corner!
One of my favorite platters with some candles, nothing too fussy.
I love wreaths in the windows and have one in just about every window at the front of our house!
The shadow boxes in the corner were a great Homesense find $16.99 each and they have burlap
as the back so you can use it as a bulletin board idea. :)
I decided to use the blue colors in the living room rather than my traditional colors
I like how it works with the white and the grey colored walls.
Lovin all the chalkboard art that is out there this year!
These old doors were rescued from the dump! Yep,,,that is right... the
local landfill! Of course they were needing a fresh coat of paint, but they fill in this wall
behind the couch very nicely! I can change our whatever I want for the frames.
That will be it for the living room,,,,our Christmas tree is in the sitting room off of the kitchen.
Trying to get a good shot of the tree has been challenging! Anyone else have that problem?
