Before and After: Living room

The living room was big white and pretty empty when we first saw it.

DSCF3086 (2)I took Kaylee over to the house with me to check on a few things during reno. She passed out by the front door. The next photos are of the mostly done living room. I still need to finish caulking baseboards, and do some touch up painting.

IMG_9066I got this AWESOME shoe dresser from Ikea. Inside those four drawers is a hot mess of shoes. 🙂


IMG_9059My area rug is getting sort of sad…. I found a dreamy orange and white chunky stripped one online that I fell in love with. Dreamy as in it’s just a dream…… Pretend it’s there though.

IMG_9056Looking from the play room toward the kitchen. I think Josh bought the biggest t.v. he could. I was not thrilled with having such a massive t.v. in the living room because I knew we would get used to it, and not be able to go back to a more reasonable size when it left. Jon and I are SO very used to having the giant bachelor t.v. It’s going away to Joshily house soonish. Jon has been eying replacements.
