Out with the old!
Below is what my living room has looked like for several years - this was its second renovation after moving into the house in 1978. Now it's time for another change.
The sheer draperies will come down and white plantation shutters will go up with a blue toile valance.
The Thomas Kinkade ceiling border will come down.
The couch wall [pictured below] will undergo a major renovation as you can see in my husband's drawing for the wall units he's building. None of the wall accessories will go back up.
The couch will go where the piano is, and I'm not sure what other pieces of furniture or accessories will still fit. We'll figure that out when the renovation is done.
The wallpaper pictured below will be coming down...
And York blue toile wallpaper [Country Life pattern] will be going up. I picked it up from the wallpaper store last Saturday.
The paint [light blue again] has been selected. I removed everything from the walls, and packed up all the accessories, and now the room is ready for Jerry to work his magic.
Below are some "before" pictures, and there'll be "after" pictures when the project is completed.
And now the work begins! The house is topsy-turvy, but it'll be worth the mess and inconvenience when the living room is all done.
