Aaron’s Living Room Before & After

By | Room Makeovers | 3 Comments

I cannot take full credit for this one. Aaron and I worked on this one together. This was labeled as his dining room when he first bought his place, but I convinced him to try it out as a living room.

I love the pop of yellow in the sunroom. The paint was thin and took me almost 6 coats to get it finished. I wish you could see the credenza on the other wall – it’s a similar color yellow and works so well with the gray walls and rug. I try to stay away from being matchy matchy but it’s working for me here.

Sofa – Macy’s

Rug – IKEA (Area rugs are so expensive. Save yourself some cost and put two 5×7’s together. Patterns are tricky but it worked out great here.)

With spring just around the corner, my front porch has been on my mind. I love this photo:

My parents must have been channeling my vision, because for Christmas they refinished a pair of 1960’s retro rockers for me. They are too neat:

My Living Room Before & After

By | Room Makeovers | One Comment

Another BEFORE/AFTER post. I wish I had an even earlier photo of my living room, with its cheap carpet, dark mantle, smokey blue walls and rickety ceiling fan. At one time it even had an orange sectional sofa! All that is now gone. In a typical Emily-style weekend, I turned manic and painted everything white and ripped out the carpet. A couple of days later, my dad installed the pendant light. The mess ended up looking like this:

And it stayed like that for many months. Because flooring (even laminate!) is expensive! Here is what it looked like during flooring day (of course done by my dad):
