LIVING ROOM

Since I know my followers are just DYING to take a little PEAK inside my house (NOT!), I have prepared this little post for their viewing pleasure.  The following are before and after pictures of my living room.  

The before....





Now I know what you're thinking...It was soooo airy and cottagey looking...why didn't I keep that sweet pinkish color and the retro wallpaper?  Well first off, I considered keeping the paper because I really did like it, but the hubster said the paper IS going...PERIOD.  Secondly, that pretty pinkish color was not as pinkish as it appears in these pictures...it was more like a horrible (FILTHY) mauve color...not very appealing.  So down came the paper...look what color was behind it....



...is that FRIGHTENING or what?  So now we'll just move onto bigger and better things...something a little more serene and a lot less frightening...so relax, come on in and sit a spell...the AFTER...










I am not finished with the built-in bookshelves yet.  They REALLY need more books and BETTER accessories...I am still looking for just the perfect treasures to showcase here...





Do keep in mind that I have used some of the furniture and decor from our old house, as I have yet to decide just what style I want to go with here...AND... although I have had many compliments on what I've done in here thus far...this is ALL subject to change...so STAY TUNED!
