Before & After - Living Room

Let's try something new about some direct comparison shots!

BEFORE - the living room:
As I mentioned HERE, in the above picture you can barely see the opening down into the former den/current playroom.  I know we have a good picture of it on our old hard-drive. It was a 28" opening with an archway.

AFTER pictures:
We just love our "new" piano!  Lily loves to play & does Ella.

very special painting. My Grandma painted this from a picture taken of Lily at the beach back in May.  It was Lily's birthday gift from them.  It goes perfectly with our collected shells from Wrightsville Beach. I am currently looking for a frame for it.

BEFORE -  Cut outs into the entryway & kitchen.


BEFORE - The below picture is taken from standing at the archway down into the den.

AFTER - We just love how open the floor plan is now.

BEFORE - entryway
Some of the in progress demolition is documented HERE.


I have so enjoyed cutting fresh hydrangea from our yard this summer.  

A few more AFTER pictures:

Just the other week, Jake found the lamp in the foreground, at ReStore.  It was a burgundy color.  He spray painted it for me to match our decor.

Paint Color for the Living Room -  Valspar Hopsack 3003-10B
Paint Color for the long Entry/Kitchen wall -  Olympic Dawn's Early Light C57-1
