Living Room {Before and After}

As many of you know we moved this summer and bought another fixer upper. I will be honest and tell you that this one has been so trying in so many ways. I won't get into all of the details but rest assured that the pretty after pictures you will see in the coming weeks did not go down like a happy and cute episode of hgtv Fixer Upper. It's been hard and I am so thankful to be on the other side of the story to now show you the place that we will call home. There are still many things that need to be finished but I want to go ahead and start documenting our progress and I can always show more pictures along the way. 

BEFORE


AFTER





In the living room we added a window to create more light and balance. I think it makes all the difference in the world! We also took out the carpet and added in wood flooring that matches the original wood floors throughout the rest of the house. The side you can't see in this shot will be saved for later because we are not finished with it but there was a wet bar that we took out and are still deciding what exactly to do with the space. We had planned to create a faux fireplace with space for a tv above but the budget didn't allow for it so we are going to need to get creative. In case anyone asks the paint is Revere Pewter at 25% and the trim is SW Pure White.

  3. Yes, we installed the plank walls.
    The curtains are drop cloths folded and ironed and then hung with ring clips from IKEA.
