SO a couple of weeks ago I must have gone crazy for a few minutes and concocted this plan to *redo* my living room! I'm not even really sure what I started out wanting and how I got to where I am now LOL!!
When we bought this house 4 years ago it came it ghastly white walls and the most hideous baby blue carpet I have EVER seen! Well I fixed the wall problems with paint of course! I chose a color called "Gold Coin" which is really just glorified mustard in my opinion. But I loved it and went with it. I have always liked the color in my living room but then one day I just didn't!
I think...(remember I'm drawing a blank here on the series of events that happened in this house)...I told the Hubby I was thinking of redoing the room meaning like repainting...Then all of the sudden I started fantasizing about new furniture and new carpet and new lighting and new this and new that etc etc etc forever and ever, Amen!
And yes I did have 2 sets of furniture in my living room before...See I bought the tan set thinking I would replace the green with this but then when I got it home it was absolutely uncomfortable and WAY to shallow of seats! I am so spoiled with my green DEEP seated couches! So then my "living room/family room" was created!!
I of course picked out the color that I wanted to paint the room and decided on a special paint with a texture to create the look of *brushed suede*, a brown color on the walls and a sandstone on the ceiling. Then we headed out furniture shopping, we looked at a few different stores before we found the set that the Hubby really loved and I liked it too! Then we headed over to the carpet store and picked out carpet and pad, it was easy enough because I already I had an idea of what I wanted so it took me all of 5 minutes to find JUST what I wanted!! Then I went on to finish up some other shopping while the Hubby had to go to work that day, my goal was new lighting. We had picked out the ceiling fans we wanted so all's I had to do was go back and buy them, good thing I went that day because I needed 2 and they had 2 left!
So I spent a few days painting, painting, and more painting....I was hurting! It was so painful for me to do all of this painting and everytime I do it I say I'll never do it again?! LOL!! Luckily our 13th Wedding Anniversary was coming up on November 15, so the Hubby decided to take me on a weekend getaway and I got me 2 1/2 days of rest before I was back to work!!
|The Ugliest Ceiling Fans EVER~!!!|
So that was the preview of my room BEFORE....
