More before and after

We still have a long way to go, but we have another room finished. This is our family room when we first moved in: white, white, white. (hi, little skyler!)


BEFORE:



AFTER: warmth! New couch, new rug, new storage baskets for the toys, and freshly painted walls. Our couch was ruined. It was a source of discontent for me for years (maybe it was all the snotty nose wipes on the pillows, the faded fabric from the sunshine or, actually, maybe it was the red sharpee design on the main cushion?) So, we finally bought a new one. And it's leather, which means a damp sponge is all I need to keep things spiffy.

Kudos to Sam for another meticulous painting job.


I think next is the dining room, then the garage doors, then the living room, then the kitchen, then Reed's room, then our bedroom... oh, and the bathrooms too.

I love your rooms. So warm and lovely and homey. Can you send some my way, please?

Wow! So beautiful.

through the snowy winter we did some work on our house as well. That gives me an idea for a post of my own... yeah right... don't hold your breath!
