Betties, I can not begin to tell you how insanely happy I was to come home from my 2 week vacation to my new hardwood floors being installed! We had been living in the house for a month with most of our furniture stored in the garage, waiting for our floors to come in. Not easy. Poor Little Betty thought her toys were permanently lost! But now we can finally, FINALLY move into our new house for real! I have been spending the last couple days gleefully hanging pictures and arranging furniture. We are all so happy to have this place beginning to feel like home! So, want to see some progress? Our front living room is pretty much complete, so that’s what I’ll show you today.
When we bought the house, it looked like this:
Here’s a shot of the work in progress:
Fresh white paint with an avocado green accent wall and new oak floors! What a difference, right? I think we kept the vintage integrity of the room while just “polishing” it up a little. As you can see the valance is gone, but we did keep the lovely green silk pinch pleat curtains and sheers.
All in all I could not be more pleased with how it turned out. The oak flooring looks great next to the green VCT in the back of the house. It all has a cohesive flow to my eye. In this shot you can also get a glimpse of the rad turquoise ceilings in the back of the house. Now I just need to get cracking on the bedrooms and then I can officially call us moved in!
