I showed you what our living room looked like before we moved in in THIS POST. I mentioned we lived in a historic home with TONS of wood! Like tons of it...wood windows--CHECK, wood floors--CHECK, wood walls--CHECK, wood beams--CHECK. And honestly...I love it. Its too beautiful and historic to paint so we need to be creative in our decorating. We are not there yet, but here is an IN PROGRESS pic..
She is the cutest, right?? Especially in her Dora PJ's!
We tried to lighten things up as much as we could. Any parent will tell you that having light ANYTHING with kids is hard, so we are doing our best.
Here is the before one more time..
As indicated above, there is still many things to work on. We are in the midst of building a TV stand out of an old Remington Typewriter crate. I love it...just a couple more things and it will be ready to go. The side tables are obviously there just to give our lights something to sit on. They were never meant to be a part of this room and with the Provence Paint (Annie Sloan's) on them...they don't exactly match...
Apparently we have a things for ceramic animal heads. The dear head is up and we have a moose head that still needs to be hung. The papasan chair is also a filler--we purchased this to go in our daughters room, but for now its in the living room. Eventually we will replace with the matching loveseat for our couch...but you never know with us. We are always changing.
