Going gray

A lot of cosmetic changes have been happening in this little house recently. Primarily paint. Lots of paint! You may remember my list of rooms I wanted Jason to paint while I was away in Baltimore for the weekend. Obviously he is not super-painter-man and was unable to complete everything. But, he's made good headway!

The living room and foyer are completely finished. They have gone from this...



To this...!



We are going to be rearranging the furniture and putting the TV above the fireplace. I've also been perusing Home Goods for end tables and table lamps. I'm so excited to redecorate and finally put some art up on our walls, too! I am so pleased with the results so far. This room has come a LONG way from its beginning. You can see its progression  here, here and here.
And speaking of the fireplace... Remember my nemesis the mirror?

Well, it's gone! *cue angels singing*


Still to come are new ceiling fans and light fixtures in the kitchen, living room, foyer and hallway. We're also going to be putting beadboard in the breakfast room. I've been eyeing up some different fireplace redos as well. My favorites so far:

The Lettered Cottage



I'm so excited that things are finally coming together! I really hope that with some good ol' fashioned elbow grease and time management we'll be able to finish everything before Baby Number Two comes along in September!

I can't wait to show you all the finished product. But, really, is any room ever actually finished??

Linking up with Amanda today.

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

  2. Wonderful progress! Nice and modern, you have some great bones over there.

    Have fun at HomeGoods, don't hold yourself back!

    And I'd say for the fireplace, go for something tall, taller than the bookshelves, make a statement!

  4. I've gone gray too! I love the lighter color and have been collecting white pieces for a more crisp look. Great job on your new look!
