L is for…
So, the living room. When we bought the house, it was orange (basically) and full of furniture, with lace curtains and a piano on one wall.
Got rid of the furniture, refinished the floors (after realizing that the tape that had been holding the rug in place would NOT come off the floor), painted and replaced the light fixture.
Eventually we also fixed the windows so that they now open and replaced the ugly lace curtains (sorry, I know some people, my mother included, love lace curtains, but I can’t STAND them) with wood blinds.
Now, it’s one of our favourite rooms in the house with plenty of room for having lots of people over.
