House Update

Here are a few pictures of the living room as they currently look
Remember we have torn off fake paneling, sheetrock and wallpaper.

Now we have sanded the walls.

We also tore out fake flooring covering the hardwoods, and a dropped ceiling which hid
a 12'8" ceiling.

We have Chimney Sweep coming next week to look at the fireplaces.
I tried to clean one, and soot started pouring out of the chimney!

Back wall....what you see when you enter the house.
Front wall of living room

Side wall of living room..opposite the stairs.

The drapes I have stored to use..but now I need to add 1 foot of material to have them long enough. I will just add a contrast, because the hem is only 6 inches.

Our furniture that will go in the living room.

I'm planning to paint the walls Water Chestnut by Glidden.

I love mantles, and need at least three to go in our house. We found one in the house, and I may use it in a back room.
Here's one that I think would look awesome in our living room!
Wonder how that wall color would look????!!!

Nate Berkus Design I found on a decor blog. I think a blog called A Perfect Grey.
Edited to add: I'm going to find a swatch of that paint color!

I love that gray, too! I actually got to ask Nate Berkus his favorite grays and two that he named were Moon Shadow and Silver Lake, both by Benjamin Moore.

good luck!
