~ The Living Room ~

Hey again! (If you are just arriving, I'm giving a home tour this week- a room everyday! Check out my other posts if you want to see what you've missed! =)

Here are 5 before pics and 5 after pics....

We have wanted to paint for a LONG time and just got it done about a month ago and now we are planning to move! ...sniffle... BUT we have SO enjoyed spending time in there since it has been done!!!!!!

....dark...
....dark...

....dark!...And now......................


LIGHT!!!!!!

(to see what's behind the couch, click here!)

BRIGHT!!!!!
CLEAN!!!!!!!!
WHITE!!!!!! (the paint color is called 'Cream in my Coffee' by Valspar, which I thought fitting since my hubby loves coffee with cream! =)
DELIGHT!!!!!!!!
(Have been planning on painting that little table with the Battenburg lace cloth on it... when life slows down and the outside is warm and I feel like it.....! It will be white! Someday... =)

Also, if you want, you can step out through our slider door onto the patio here! (Right now the plants are taken in for the winter and the pillows are put away, so I didn't take new pics for the tour! =)

See you tomorrow for the 'hallway' and bathroom!



Linked up with The Shabby Chic Cottage for Transformation Thursday! Check out all the other great DIY projects over there!

The power of paint! I have a paneled family room like yours and I've already painted it 3 times....getting ready to do it again in a plain white. Your 'cream in my coffee' looks gorgeous :o)

Hi Rebecca...

Ohhh...I just love your living room! Painting those dark paneled walls white really transformed this room...it's just unbelievable!!! Love, love, LOVE the light and bright white wall color, my friend! I also really like how you rearranged your furniture...love those two big comfy chairs right by the fireplace!!! You did GOOD, my friend!!! Thank you for sharing more of your beautiful home with us!

Warmest wishes,

Rebecca, I'm enjoying the tour of your house! Looks so cute and cozy. Where are you moving to?

We are (Lord willing!) buying a house that is not 1/4 mile from the church!
