new look for the living room

Slowly but surely, we've been tackling the inside house projects.  Fixing up the living room was a big visual impact room for me as you can see the living room from many other places in the house.  To start, I spray painted the fan and floor vents and then my Dad helped install coordinating new door locks (though that was for safety, not looks).  That was all we did for a long time, until I got motivated to tackle the wallpaper removal and wall repair.  1-2-3-jump! The best part about a home improvement project is having an undone room to play in.before, on the first day we saw the house and after with the new lookThe trim wall paper came off easily, but the single fully wallpapered wall was ripping the wallboard as I peeled it.  So, I decided to leave the wallpaper up, repair the existing damage and move forward with paint.  Once the walls were done, I replaced the furniture and added the wall accessories.  We really enjoy being in this space now.  The girls and I gather together on the couch nearly daily and read together.  It's been fun to make progress on the inside of the house, getting it to more look like 'us.'  Feels a bit more like home with every project completed!
