This was our living room
(of course I started tearing it apart before I snapped a picture and yes, that is "Deliverance" on the TV- "you got a purty mouth, boy").
On Saturday morning I said to the Mister "Could we PLEASE get the new trim put up today?" and that started the whole ball rolling. He said he really wanted to paint the walls before he nailed the new trim up and then...
he said he really wanted new carpet and so we might as well do new tile around the fireplace before we had new carpet installed!
Here's a picture of the fireplace before the tile was removed:
after the tile was removed...so creepy! I was afraid a critter was going to crawl down the chimney and run loose in our house! But then again, isn't a wild possum lose in the house a bloggers DREAM?
I was never a huge fan of this wall color, it was SO dark in here!
The kitchen after the cabinets got re-painted, but pre granite and tile backsplash.
I get a little crazy about picking paint colors, I always 2nd guess myself. After my hideous entry way disaster I've been shell shocked and afraid to pick a color for the great room because it's a huge area with no real breaks, so I had to pick 1 main color. I went with Tobacco Leaf, which is just that, kind of a khaki color. With the 1st swipe of the brush, I knew I didn't know if I liked it- I saw the panic on the Mister's face but I had 3 full gallons of this color... Now that it's up, it's so much brighter in here!
There's still a LOT to do: trim, fireplace, new carpet, new lights and someday...
new furniture! Don't ya know when you freshen up one thing, it makes everything else start to look ratty. I'm talking to you faded red couch!
Anything you're working on in your home?
Anything you need to do but want to avoid (like me and my entry?!)?
Happy Tuesday friends!!!
