The past few days I have been painting the living room. As much as I loved my red walls, it was time for a change. We've been in this house almost 4-years and though that's not a long time, it was time to brighten things up.
But this isn't the first time I've changed things up in the living room. Nope, nothing beats the faux fireplace de-'mantling' of 2011. As pretty as it was, it took up very valuable floor space. And when you have 5 people in a 1,200 sq. ft. house, you don't waste space.
*We were able to salvage the mantel and sold it to an antique store and used the money for supplies... it worked out great. I still miss it, but the blue piano has helped ease the pain. ;)
|One month in our new house. |
It was just the three of us at the time.
I love my little house.
|This is the living room right after the babies were born. |
Very, very crowded. (Almost a year in the house.)
|As much as I liked the faux fireplace, we needed the wall space. |
It was also very therapeutic. ;) (2-years in the house.)
|My vinyl trees. Oh how I loved them. |
But not as much as the twins loved
peeling them off. :(
|I love red, but it's a small space |
and green makes me happy. :)
How did Lowe's know my color scheme?! ;)
|Our piano I painted blue. It was free and has a broken bridge,|
but the kids love to pound on it and I love the whimsy it adds.
|You will notice we have a guitar or 5. |
In the dining room is a fiddle and uke.
Our instruments are our art. :)
|Karate Girl was sad to see the red go so |
I painted over a decal. You'll notice the screw hole,
I have it hidden behind the lap steel.
Only she knows it's there and she loves it. :)
