Makeover finished!

So if you remember, about 2 months ago, I blogged about making over our living room and dining room.  I'm happy to report that we're finished!

I'm also happy to report that we stayed with the striped chair and are very glad that we did, it looks great!

I'll save the talking for later, have a look at some pictures first!

Dining Room:

(Sorry about the coke on the chair and other boxes, shopping at BJ's makes it hard to store bulk!)

(Maya wanted in the picture!)

Living Room:


I would post links to furniture etc, but for the couch and chair and the dining room table, I did not have a good experience with either company so I would rather not, if you want to know where I got anything specifically, let me know.

This room is definitely much more my style!  We quickly got everything painted and then played the waiting game for the furniture (couch & chair).  Once we had that, we struggled to find end tables and then curtains.  It felt like it took forever to finally find everything and get it set up, but I finished before M came, which was my goal.

It's such a clean and bright look.  I'm now happy to go into these rooms!  Some of my favorite things in the rooms are the wine cork holder in the dining room (we got it in Savannah) and our cake topper in the living room on the shelves (from Paul Pape Designs).  Unfortunately I didn't get a close enough picture to share this time.  The ottomans are great and hold our board games and decks of cards.  Hopefully we'll get more use out of them now.

I am still looking for a few decorations to go on the shelves and end tables, but for now I'm satisfied with how it turned out and I hope we will sit in there and enjoy it a little more.

Have a great weekend!


  1. oh my gosh, I love the living room!! It looks fantastic!

  2. Beautiful! It's so bright now!

    Did I spy a spoon collection just outside of your dining room? I'm a spoon collector and I don't know any other young people who do it. I would be thrilled if you were one.

  3. Holy cow, it looks great! I love the light blue & beige, totally soothing. Nicely done :)

  4. Wow it looks great! It's so bright & open.

    I did the same thing. My LR in my old apt was a deep Opera house red and my new place it's blue. What color blue is that? I used Ben.Moore's "Buxton Blue". I stole it from the Pottery Barn catalog. LOL

  5. wow, it looks amazing!! Great job!

  6. Good job on your room makeover! It looks great!


Comments make me smile!

Have a wonderful day!
