So I have been working on a few changes at our house. I bought this green furniture set when I was single and bought my first house about 8 years ago. We had been wanting to get something new but had planned to wait a while. And then some friends of ours got new furniture and sold us a leather couch and 2 chairs (one we put in Scott's office) for a great deal that we couldn't pass up. This is the BEFORE of what our family room looked like.
And this is the after. New couch and chair. I got a new rug and of course the bar stools I already told you about. The room seems a little bigger now which is nice. That wall to the left of the window needs something. I'm thinking once Harper is a little bigger and I get one or two great pictures of her - I'll have them framed and hang on that wall in some big gold chunky frames.
This is looking from the back of the family room into the kitchen before:
And this is after. I'm happy with how it looks. The only other thing I want is some new things to go on top of the armoire that holds the TV. Right now there is some floral arrangement that I think is left over from Christmas. ha! So I'm scouting out bargains for that and then I'll feel really happy about that room.
I'm also in the middle of doing a makeover on another room but I can't show you it just yet. Don't get excited......it's NOT another nursery. ha! I'm re-doing our master bedroom but I have a few steps to go. Once again, I've been able to do a lot on a small budget so I'm excited! I think I'm going to like it. I'm also in the middle of packing up a lot of Harper's baby stuff that she can't use anymore like the bouncy seat and a few other things. It makes me a little sad.
P.S. LOVING the wedding gown posts. I'm on #30 so it will be fall before I get to the 400's but this may be my favorite blog carnival yet. Next week is the wedding party and flowers but feel free to include anything else like your wedding rings, your proposal, etc...... and then the next week will be reception pictures. SO fun! I thought it would easier to break into a 3 part series!
