The big reveal

I finally feel like I have one BIG project complete! The past 21 months I have been working on all types of projects on the house. Some of been "mandatory" like cleaning gutters, taking down dead trees to "optional" like replacing green counter tops with granite. I felt like I was all over the place and doing a project in every room. Because of this I have NEVER felt like I completed a room. I always felt like I had a TON of things to do (don't get me wrong- i do- but it was a heavy feeling). So....with the help of a friend and interior decorator I tackled the living/dining room. For the past 2 months I have ignored all other rooms when it comes "how should I decorate" and "what color theme should I use" thoughts.

We started by coming up with a color theme...i loved the pottery barn rug and so I broke down and bought it. This was the start of the room makeover. Here is a look at how the room has evolved over time... i am so happy to have pictures on the wall and matching "stuff."

Take a look....
