The Living Room- Before & After


BEFORE
This is what the living room looked like when we first saw it. YIKES!!! We had a lot of work to do ;)
 Here it is while we were in the process of painting. I had already painted the inside of the front door.

 Notice my wonderful little helper. A big thanks to my best friend, Alli for spending the day helping me paint. She was a huge help.


AFTER
 We painted the walls Oatbran by Valspar. I was really pleased with the way it turned out.
 I love deer skulls and antlers and I've always wanted to display them in my house somewhere. Aaron finally let me spray paint his deer skulls and now he's pretty pumped that I put them on the walls.

 The curtains are from Kirkland's. I decided to spray paint these antlers gold and I'm so glad I did. 

 This lampshade I found at Target.


 This pillow is my favorite part of the living room. I found it on Etsy here.


 We discovered the hardwood underneath the linoleum and decided to stain it Dark Walnut. It is not perfect and has a lot of character....so don't look too close. It by far beats the linoleum though.
 I painted the door Palladian Blue by Benjamin Moore, but in the Valspar look a like version. It is one of my favorite parts of the living room. 
 And there is our glorious hole in the wall from an old heater unit. Not  sure yet what we're going to do with it. 

 I found this rug at Target .



Everything else you see in the living room is stuff I already had. It's crazy what a little paint on the walls and woodwork and some stain on the floor can do to a place. We love it and are so excited to have one room in the house completely finished so we can enjoy it while we work on the other rooms.
