Living Room is Finished!!


Before


After

The biggest change was that I painted the piano black using a semi gloss paint.  I had a scarf that I bought 5 years ago that I wore with a black skirt and it looks beautiful on top of that piano.


My mom gave me sheet music from the 1890's that I have displayed on the piano.  Also you will see that I painted the radiators the base coat color of the walls.

After

We moved the furniture around from the before picture.  Also you can see in this picture that the ceiling is sponged in lighter shades of the wall color.



The Entryway

In July I will begin working on my son's room.   I need at last a 6 week break before I begin this process again.
