A Completed Space

Other than one lamp still on order from Pottery Barn, our living room is finally finished.  It has been a long journey to get to the cozy, comfortable living space we envisioned.  Because we have a television in the basement living space, we decided to go sans television up here: we don't have cable and don't spend any time watching it, so why bother?  We wanted to have a space to sit and relax with the kids and have ample seating if we have company.  And if we have company, we're not going to have the television on anyway.

So, popcorn scraping, grass cloth removing, and wall painting later, here we are:

Sorry about the lamp glare on the after pictures- it's a darker room and it was pouring, and I had to share.  But you get the idea.  We're so happy with the result.

Now we're going to focus on the entryway, getting the half bath and mudroom complete.  Have you accomplished a big project lately?


  1. I love it! It's very cozy and inviting. Doing the cabinets in white was a good choice to balance everything out. And where did you get that awesome Aladdin lamp under the end table? (Please don't say the dump, because I want one.)

  2. very pretty - love the curtains and the furniture...all simple, but welcoming! love your blog x

  3. Looks great! I'll bet it feels wonderful to finally be done and have a lovely room to relax in! Especially to have that horrid grass wallpaper down!

  4. So pretty! You did an amazing job! P.S. Luci totally has that little car thing you can sit on or use as a push toy... Glad it made the pic:)
