Remember when I promised you pictures of the yard work we've done? Yeah, I never got around to taking the pictures before the snow got here so it looks like they'll have to wait for spring.
But, we do have two rooms redecorated and semi-done! First up, the dining room.
This is what it looked like on closing day:
The walls were a dark purple color - it didn't look bad when the previous owners had it set up, but it's not our style. And a very, very dirty light fixture. And, you can't totally tell but the curtain rod is covered in vines and fake flowers. Ugh.
And, here it is today:
We cleaned up the light fixture, took the funny stuff off the curtain rod, gave the room a nice, new grey color and added in our new furniture. I'm so loving the china cabinet. My wedding china finally has a home!
The painting was - by far - the worst. The purple paint was uber shiny so when we went to put on the first primer coat it just ran down the walls. Such a mess! Mark ended up having to buff the walls in spots to get the primer to stick.
I love the clean look of the gray with the wood. We still need some new curtains (I have no idea what I want) and some art for the walls (also not sure what exactly to do) but it looks so much better already!
