You guys are probably pretty familiar with this room cuz of all my holiday posts.
Now that the floors are done I can officially call this room done.
you get the idea.
Many of you, however, don’t know what this room looked like when we moved in.
Let me give you a clue: totally different, wouldn’t recognize it if it slapped you in the kisser.
(small disclaimer: these photos are unedited, which I almost NEVER post. but alas, my computer is a piece of toodle and its almost 11pm, so you guys are just gonna have to deal with straight out of the camera pics.)
This is the living room as it looked when we made our offer. super de duper dark and, well, red. I’m all for red but the dining room was dark hunter green. aka Christmas house. to the max.
And how it looks today. This is my petty, budgeted attempt to channel the living room from “Somethings Gotta Give” That movie with Diane Keaton. Check out that way more awesome house here.
Shot of the fireplace when we made our offer. Needless to say I started priming this room the day we closed on the house. It took me 2 days, 3 coats of primer and 3 coats of paint to cover the red.
I still see areas where I swear to jeebus I can see red shining through.
Husband thinks I’m nuts.
Blue curtains and couch with a yellow rug? yes sir! (flutter flutter! anyone?)
