Living Room Before and After

As promised here is the before and after of our living room redo. Our house has a living room/dining room combo. However, the dining room area isn't very large and is a little awkwardly placed in my opinion. It also has carpet, which drives me crazy under a table. We decided when we moved here to just use the breakfast area for our table and we have placed a kid sized table with 4 stools and a toy box in the dining area to create a little play area. We normally have a rug under the kid table but a certain puppy decided said rug was a chew toy.

The photo above the TV should still be there. However it came crashing to the ground last night. Will be on the lookout for a new photo to put there.

This is the wall with the TV and future accent wall. That doorway leads to the hall to the bedrooms and bathroom. 
No more Blank walls!

Notice the kid table in the "dining room". The toy box hasn't been put back yet.  
My 2 Dogs.
The smaller one on the left is the infamous puppy. We think she is a Lab/Great Dane mix, her name is Kira. The big guy with the gray chin is my 9 year old Newfoundland Cubby.


  1. LOVE how everything turned out! It looks really similar to the colors we've picked too. That accent wall looks really nice. We've toyed around with the idea of painting our brick fireplace a deeper color than the rest of the walls (it's pale gray and it just looks "dirty"). It's nice to actually see how great those 2 colors look together!

    I'm also loving the pictures of Grant on the mantle! So pretty!

    Hope you have a great rest of your week!
