Our plans have changed and grown with time. And while it feels slow, we've made so much progress. The first step was a coat of paint. After living for 2 months with a bunch of paint swatches on the wall, I chose S-W Aqua-Sphere, tinted at 50%. Next, we ripped up the carpet because our dogs trashed it very, very quickly.
That fireplace was screamin' for a remodel. New tile wasn't in the budget, so a little paint fixed it right up. It was plain white for awhile before I painted a little marble effect onto it. I'll post a tutorial about that too.
The curtains softened the room immensely. I was worried about blocking out too much light, so I made sure to hang them high and wide.
The flooring went down in February and we are still loving it. I had a really pretty sisal rug in here for awhile ... and then the dogs peed on it. Sisal + dog pee = rug death. For now, we're living with just the smaller rug, which I actually kinda like because it allows us to enjoy more of our beautiful floor!
I wrote about installing the baseboards in this post. I love how the finish the room!
The giant mirror came down last weekend, so now we're planning our remodel. We're planking the wall, mounting the TV, building out a fireplace surround, and building a mantle. To say I'm excited would be an understatement. Here's a little preview of what we have planned...
EEEEEKKK!!! So pretty. So, so pretty. I'll post more specific details soon!
