Living Room Update

We had such a wonderful Labor Day weekend. I can’t remember us having a long holiday weekend where we got to stay home and do whatever we wanted to do. It was so nice and we are definitely planning on doing it again! Andy and I took naps when Rory napped (so rare), we watched a bunch of Netflix (tv series and movies), and just did some stuff around the house. It was AMAZING.

Mainly, we painted the living room! I’m so happy with it! Because our room was a white/pink/weird color, our couch looked dingy all the time no matter how much I cleaned it. Now it pops off the wall and looks much better!

Before pics:


we painted the hallway too, and changed out the light

And yes, we still have that stinkin’ wallpaper in the entry way. It was my plan to take it down and paint that too, but unfortunately it has at least 2 layers of wallpaper. AND our living room walls are textured but they didn’t texture the entry way. Weird, right?

So what’d we do?

  • painted the living room/hall
  • changed out all the lights and the fan

Isn’t it amazing what a difference a gallon (or several gallons!) of paint can do? And the same goes for updating the lighting. It makes a world of difference!

  1. It is amazing what new fixtures and paint will do. Cheap fixes that make so much difference! We hung superlong curtain rods and curtains this weekend (after 2 years of not having any). It was pretty challenging, but it was so worth it. I hardly recognize my own house now.

  2. I love the color! Ya’ll did a great job. It is a good thing Andy had Rory to help him paint. Dad and I did a little rearranging this weekend. Surprise!Surprise!

  3. Love it, Love it, Love it! Makes a world of difference. Take that wp down from the foyer and texture it yourself. Home Depot has the paint and instructions on texturing your walls probably Lowes’ too. Ya’ll are experts now, you can do it!!!

I love hearing from y'all! Leave a comment below!
