Our Living Room...

Our living room has had some changes over the years!
It's so fun to see the difference.
 Our living room, dining room, hallways and great room were covered in white carpet.  
We saved up for a few years & eventually replaced all of the flooring on the main floor.
The wood floors were definitely one of the greatest improvements we've made to our home.
They really changed the look & feel of the whole house.
This is what my living room looked like for years...
I loved my floral couch set, but then we decided a sectional would open up the space & make it feel more open.  
My neighbor actually had this same set, but her dogs had ruined it, so she bought it from me. 
 It worked out perfect!
The sectional fit just right & really made the space feel so open!  
I also liked having a more neutral color scheme.
Here is another before:
This is the wall you see when you walk in the door.  
This hutch used to be the same color as the table behind the couch  in the first before photo.  
 When I stained my railing a walnut color in my ENTRY, I darkened the hutch & table too.
Now we have a piano here... 
 I moved the hutch to my daughter's NURSERY.
I've just recently added a touch of yellow to the room. 
 I just switched out the pillows & added a few yellow accessories.
  It's amazing how just a little color can make the whole room feel more cheery!
I also got this wicker rocking chair for mother's day...
I love it!!
This is how it looks from the front door now...
Here is how the sectional looks with a few yellow pillows...
I also moved a few pictures around & made a collage by the front door.
It's also been a fun change.
The next project is adding "chunkier" molding around the front door & windows. 
 It's a continuing process, but so fun to see how things have changed over the years.
Here is one more look at the before & after...
I can't wait to show you how I've added a touch of fall to the room!
I'm sharing with these blogs:
