Please excuse the blurry blackberry photos
We painted the main house a light gray (honestly, I'm not a super fan. I want less blue gray and a darker gray. I think repainting the main area will be a spring project - before the new trim goes in), took out the baseboard heaters and added a ceiling fan.
We had a horrible brown and white chevron rug that refused to lay flat. I've never been so happy to get rid of something in my life!
Also on the agenda - refinishing the coffee table and building the end tables.
In the previous photo you could see the plain white curtains. I painted the curtains with a tan color to add some depth to the windows, as well as tie in the space between the fireplace and couches.
Here is our current 'After'. Notice the mismatched striped curtains in the back? Yup, not quite sure how I mangled that so badly. We put in a ceiling fan, painted the fireplace white and added some fun lamps!!
Here's a close up of the lamps. We love geometric patterns and plan to use another pattern in our entry way bench.
