Some room reveals...

Hello Everyone! I'm finally back from my trip to Vegas.  It was a very long and exhausting trip  but it was also very successful.  I was able to make a huge dent in the house I had gone to decorate. The project was a lot more work than I originally anticipated. But aren't they all? When I arrived at the house it already had the main furniture in all rooms and for the most part the furniture was arranged appropriately with a few minor exceptions.  All of the home decor items had mostly been put in one room to make choosing items easier. Sounds easy right?  Well, it wasn't quite that simple.  There were a ton of boxes to go through and be moved, a lot of pictures that had needed to be leveled and hung, and curtain rods had to be installed.  I also had some overall challenges.  For example, I was using furniture and home decor items that were purchased for a completely different house. The houses have different layouts and room configurations which in my part just took a little more thought and planning.

I was not great with the picture taking even though I originally took this job in part because of the desire to put it on this blog.  That is something I definitely have to work on.

Here are some before pics so you can get an idea of what the overall house looked like.

I thought I had taken pics of the living room, kitchen, and dining room but I guess I didn't.. oops

Below are some pics of what some of the rooms looked like when I left.

The living room
You can't tell in the photo but the blanket on the couch is a beautiful green.
Dining area right next to the living room.
Ok, so there you have the living room, dining, and entryway.. I will post the pics of the kitchen, family room, and bedrooms soon. I will be back in the swing of blogging shortly.. The kids go back to school in two weeks. Can I get a woot woot!!

Kitchen Redo

Ok so I missed my deadline by a day.  However, I did reveal the dining room so I should get some points for that.

Well without further adieu, here is my new kitchen.

As a reminder, here is what my kitchen looked like before. A dated wood with big black iron hinges that looked a bit industrial.

And here is my kitchen now....

I used Benjamin Moore White Dove to paint all the cabinets. It really lightens up the whole kitchen especially since my kitchen is a bit on the smaller side.  I may still tweak a few things as I find some accessories that I am on the hunt for but for now, I am super happy with the way it turned out.
