Living Room Redo Update……

A lot has happened in the living room while Autumn Inspirationing.  Here’s a few  pictures of the ‘before’:

The coffee painting over the sofa on the bright green wall…..{now for sale in etsy}

The whimsical furniture in the corner for DVDs, etc…….{you can still see a bit of the bright orange wall under the book page covering at this point}  We were so excited to be able to donate this piece of furniture to the wonderful church that gave us the antique mantel.  Yay!

The corner bookshelf that needed a mate…….

Here’s the new bookshelf that Handsome built for the other side…waiting to be painted……

And here are the two corner bookshelves painted in Annie Sloan Old White chalk paint, and then distressed with dark wax……


We then added some fun French ticking curtains to hide all the stuff we needed to store.  Even after cleaning out…we had a lot of stuff that needed to be stored…..{Yes, I know….I’ve got to get the wrinkles out!}

I have been in a HUGE clean out mode!  Out came all the stuff that was on the shelves before….and only kept if it was special.  The open shelves now are less cluttered, and much more pleasing to the eye……

It has come along way!  Still some fun things to do in here, but we are enjoying the brighter, less cluttered main area of our home.  Isn’t it funny how everything used to be painted bright colors—but it made the area dark and closed-in.  This area seems twice as big as it used to!

{Excuse the not-so-great pics…I’m still having to learn how to take pictures in this area….it’s a tough one!}

Have you been up to any fun projects at your home lately?
