A Year In Review Part 1 Living Room

It has been one year and one month exactly since we moved into our current home.
 
I thought it would be fun to look back and see all that we have accomplished over the last year, through some before and after photos.  Sound like fun?
 
 
The first huge project was removing old stained carpet and adding hardwood floors.  Here is how the living room looks today.  Other projects that happened in this room over the past year were making and hanging the curtains, adding floor outlets and refinishing a table top.
 
 
Here is a shot of the living room, right after the floors were finished, before we moved in and before the walls were painted.
 
 
 
 
Before, with dirty worn carpet.
 
 
  You can see more of this transformation in this post, here.  For the next week, I will be posting projects that happened this past year.  It is fun looking back and seeing all we accomplished.

You sure have done a lot in your beautiful new to you home! It's been fun watching the progress. Hope your Christmas was merry. Mimi

I don't understand. You don't like the dirty worn carpet? I hear that's the latest rage! Just kidding. You have done wonders with your house since you've moved in. I think your family room has great "bones" anyway. That's what matters most. You saw the potential and made it happen.

As someone who has been watching all year, you got an amazing amount of work done on this house! It really looks so much sunnier and warmer with the wood floors and new wall color.

Dearest friend, you and K ALWAYS make a house a real 'home' that's for sure. It's hard to believe that I've visited with you guys in three different NC homes, each one so lovely thanks to all the effort you've put into reno and decorating.

It will be fun looking back over this past year with you Penny.

Happy Boxing Day - did you get any snow?
Hugs to you both - from me
and Bob from his new leather recliner Christmas present, LOL!!!

I love seeing what you've done with your home again. You always inspire me, my friend! This morning I was inspired by your arrangement of chairs. I need to replace our sofa - now I'm thinking chairs instead of a sofa! Thank you for sharing the last year with us.

It is truly hard to believe that you have been in your new home over a year. Wow!

see you there! said...

Always enjoy the before and after photo's. Really shows your talent for decorating. I can't believe you've been in this home for a year but then again I can't believe all you have accomplished in a year either.
