Back when we first moved into this house my main focus was redoing a horrible no good very bad kitchen, you can check out photos of the kitchen remodel here. Back when we first moved in we didn’t have a rug for the living room, we had dark curtains and ugly flesh colored walls. They don’t look to bad in these photos but I promise you, it was like Silence of the Lambs on the walls.
I finally painted the brown brick on the fireplace. I am also hoping to paint over the sassy brassy parts soon with high heat paint in black.
The back wall is not my least favorite part of this living room. It looks like someone forgot to finish the bookshelves. For now the TV is there but I am hoping to convince Mr.A to build some built-ins and move the TV over the fireplace to make one focal wall instead of two. Then we can tear down the half finished bookshelves and do something else, like board and batten so we don’t have to drywall. Good thing we have Ms. A in the picture, otherwise there wouldn’t be anything cute about that picture above!
If I could paint my living room again I wouldn’t choose such a bright color, I’d go for something softer but still an aqua/turquoise type color. I think if I told my husband I wanted to paint the living room he would cry. He read this last sentence and said it would be more like weeping. Good thing he thinks I’m so cute!
I am hoping to get our gallery wall over the couch done this week but with the kids on Spring Break it might just be too much for this week, seeing as I’m already redoing the dining room chairs and table. have I ever mentioned that I think I have project ADD? Does anyone else do that?
