LIVING ROOM BEFORESOctober 14, 2016
Try not to grit your teeth when reading through our first official home project. Our sellers are adorable. An older couple that have been so sweet to us. I mean, hello, did you read my nightmare home buying story? They stuck with us through that mess and have continued to stay in touch via Facebook. Any jokes I crack are in no way meant to poke fun at their decorating, style, etc, but we are in our 20's and obviously have our own home ideas in mind.
Both of these lamps will disappear in the final living room reveal. The one on the far left actually came with the house, but it's dated and not my style. The one on the right was from the apartment. There used to be a twin, but Penny broke it. Remember when these crystal style lamps were super trendy? Well, as you can tell, I rode that trendy train to Target, which resulted in two and a half years of inappropriate jokes about my "suggestive" lamps. I'm not going to get into it. Let your mind run wild with that.
The table was something Joshua actually made in high school. I love it, and it will probably make it's way into one of the bedrooms, but for the living room, I wanted to have matching end tables.
Behind me, in these photos (not pictured) is a little more of the living room that leads to what will be our dining room. To the left of the window (pictured above), is a little more wall, and a slight hallway that leads to a coat closet and the front door. It's an awkward space and we're not sure how to make it the most functional just yet. The lighting was weird, and didn't photograph well.
Already, this looks so different than it did less than a week ago, and I cannot wait to show you the finished project! The before and afters won't even look like the same house!
So what are your weekend plans? I am up to something a little on the crazy side tonight and if you follow me on social media, you'll see what I'm talking about in a few hours. (; Have a great weekend, all!
