Here's what it looked like when we first saw it.
Ok. Then we ripped the carpet up, painted, KC put in laminate flooring and new baseboard thingys, I ripped the 'mantel' off the wall and almost decapitated my husband, you know, all in a day's work.
Before and after, because why not.
I know, it's not crazy different and awesome but we love it.
But that was several months ago, so here's what it looks like today:
The 'gallery wall' is definitely not finished, I'm just waiting for the right pieces.
I have a Gallifrey poster that I am going to put above these frames, once I find a frame.
So, yeah, no mantel and there is a chair in front of the fireplace. Not the best solution, but it'll do until we can get a sectional. And yes, that TV stand. I can't. We used to have a dresser turned tv stand and I loved the height and that it was white, but didn't love it completely, and mum got this one for us for christmas last year, and I thought I would be ok with it, but yeah no. I have big dreams for the replacement.
My best friend painted this as a wedding gift for us.
And here is the fancy hallway as well:
I'm not a huge fan of the layout of these frames, but I put them up in a rush and haven't touched them since, but I'm sure I'll change them because they just don't look right.
So, this is a 'during'. We aren't in the after stage yet, not by a long shot. But are you ever really done?
Clearly I need some help in getting to the 'after stage' for the whole house, so while I am posting these room tours, I'd love for you to throw some recommendations at me, help me out! I'm looking at you Nadine nudge nudge wink wink.
