Now that the elves have gone back to the North Pole and the Arctic Vortex has subsided, it's time to get back on track with projects. (Uh, and exercise, since I feel like I'm pushing the outer limits of my yoga pants!) I have made some progress on my living room renovations that I posted about in November (Ah! Blasphemy. What is taking me so long?!) But in all honesty, once I got the painters out, the holidays took over and then mother nature! (and on the 23rd day, the children finally go back to school!).
As a side note: when my dad would get irritated with us gals, he would say "some animals eat their young". I get it now dad, I get it. Rabbit trail. Rabbit trail. Where was I?
Right. So as a refresher, here is the look I was shooting for. Black trim, cream walls with a lot of natural hues and pops of color.
And here is where I started.
And this is the sitting room off of the living room. Before it was an undefined and under-used space.
We ended up converting it into a computer area.
More to come on this. . . now that we are finally out of the house!
