This time we bought two area rugs for the living room, a light for the wall in the living room, two lamps, and some non-slid mats for under the area rug. We still have lots to do but this was a good start.
Over the last few days I put the books back in the bookcase and began setting up the living room. We laid the area rugs and have everything laid out the way we want it. Hubby still needs to move his fish tank to the reading corner but that is about it.
We have decided we will paint the walls a pale yellow color. I am sort of considering painting the beams white but we still have to negotiate that. We also need to add base boards and crown molding which we did shop for at Home Depot but will have to buy it in February with our tax return!
Here are some pictures of our progress!
We decided to go with a darker color since we have kids, dogs, and a baby on the way! Should be less stressful for stains!
