Getting Our Paint On...

So, besides updating the living room and kitchen we really haven't done much changing in the house yet. We have been patiently waiting and saving for a current project in the works, which I hope to share with you once our HOA approves it.

We have slowly been trying to figure out how to use our front living space. As soon as you walk into our house we have a large greeting room, technically it's a formal living room/dining area but we don't use it as such. When we walked through the house before putting in an offer the previous owners had it set up like this:

After we first moved in and added our furniture, it looked like this:

We really loved this set up and it helped define the room.

I love this old trunk, probably one of my favorite pieces in our house.

This was our first dining room table we ever bought. We loved it for a short period of time. It was bar stool style table and chairs. I thought we would love it forever, but it was uncomfortable to sit at for long periods of time, like over 30 minutes. The second table we bought {in the background of our eat in kitchen area} is much more comfortable to sit and talk after dinner or play card games if we have people over. We decided to sell our first table. We bought it in 2008 for $300 and sold it on craigslist recently for $150. We are putting the $150 back in the room this weekend, starting with a lot of this:

I hope you check back on Tuesday to see the changes!!
