L is for…

l Livingroom

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.

  1. Oh, thank you thank you thank you for getting rid of the curtains (and the furniture, and the orange…). It looks so much better!!!!!!! The blinds look terrific with the lovely glass above. (is this house a money pit? 😉 )

  2. Gorgeous house! Fun to watch the progress. Especially fun to watch and know I don’t have tondo all the work! Nice job.

    • Thanks! Strictly speaking, we don’t do all the work ourselves either. But we did strip wallpaper and paint! And continue to do so… Thanks for visiting!
