Before & After of My Living Room~Part II~

I'm going to try and make a long story short!

We moved into our home two and a half years ago, it was not our "first choice" home. Our first choice was a beautiful home with a green house and a library and tons of extra storage and all the things on our list. Everything was going smooth until....dum dum dum dum......The Home Inspection and guess what? A very bad 4 letter word *MOLD*  SO, at the time we were in corporate housing and thanks to all the time that we had spent on Mr. Mold we now had 2 weeks to find a new house. Thus leads us to the house we are currently in, a small ranch style home on a dead end street with THE BEST neighbors anyone could ask for. We love the area but the house well....not so much. You can make any house a home and this has been home for two and a half years but now we are moving to Louisville and hoping this time we will be able to find the home that we want.

SO, I am going to share with you the living room before and after. It is simply amazing what a can of paint can accomplish!  


Awe! Small Prince was just 2 and 1/2

Those walls were painted QUICKLY! lol...

*******DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!*******


Ahhhh so much better!!
The living room furniture was my Mothers Day gift last year from Darling Dear and I just LOVE it.
Our goal was to take up the carpeting and put hard wood down. 

I'm still looking for lamps to place on the end tables.

Normally the curtains are drawn back but with this 100+ weather the house stays much cooler with them down. 

Another tealight lamp that was a Goodwill find for $2.00.
