Ah, I hope you enjoy these. I spent a lot of time in this room making it feel almost perfect for me. My oh so drooled over sofa has some real logistical issues, the least of which is it's size. But it's great for a big family, and it's irritating features (which Ashley furniture should have not overlooked, but they did) are overall okay since it fits us all well.
This is the before. I know it's not really fair to start a before with the clean slate, but I will anyway. It was dog hair filled house (oh, and birdseed and cat food) complete with enough damage that every wall and piece of trim had to be repainted. Also, check out that lighting! Wooo!
And now, a mere 3 months later!
The cute cabinet I got that works perfect for extra storage and fits great in the space
The pellet stove is wonderful. It lacks a decent tile job, but I hope to remedy that next summer. For the time being though, I am more than thankful for the warmth it provides us.
My favorite pillow (that always gets thrown on the floor because my husband wants to sit there and he says it doesn't leave enough room for him. Men!)
Dining area (winterized with gray accents)
One of my favorite sayings
This is what the lighting usually looks like during the prime of the day. We take the curtains down just to get a little more sunlight. We've got sunrise at 10:15am or so with sunset at 3:00pm and it's only growing shorter each day.
I should have shut off the lights for the pics, but the outside light is so dim that I need the interior lighting for decent pics (at least until I become a great photographer). Oh well.
Just a peek of my (yet unfinished) Master Bedroom
And a short view into the kitchen

Thanks for looking!
