What you've been waiting for ...


I've hesitated to put these pictures up because we're not all done but we've at least reached "substantial completion"
The above picture is on the first day the furniture was delivered. Right when they brought it in I saw 2 problems - they brought the floor models instead of the new set we were supposed to get.
And, the furniture didn't contrast at all with the main paint color. We'd tried so hard to pick just the right paint.
When Paul got home that night we decided we had to paint again and the very next day he painted the 2 corner walls a chestnut brown and it looks so much better. I love the color and sometimes think we should paint the rest of the walls that color too.

This is with the new brown walls, the green accent wall and the new TV installed on the wall.
The brown recliner is from the old living room and we are leaving it there until we get the new chairs we've ordered. We're still not sure how we're going to arrange the furniture for sure - again waiting for the other 2 chairs to be finished.

the chair and ottoman are my favorite, along with everyone else, and its a fight to get to the living room first when we're having prayers and scriptures to get that chair.
I'm still hunting for the right corner table. and accessories.


The chair in the corner by the window is new and was on debate for a couple of weeks but we've decided to keep it. Its very comfortable and reclines. We're just not sure we're going to have room for 3 chairs and if they all will go together. oh well, if it doesn't work maybe i'll put it in my room.

This has been the greatest project and its so nice to be getting to the end. Last night Paul finished painting the entry and put it in a new light which we've never had in there so that will be really great. I did buy some plants to add some greenery to the room and I really like them (sorry no pictures of them yet).
We still need to get the piano moved back into the room and figure out where to put my rocking chair and recliner until we finish the family room downstairs.
