I love that they are already embellished for me and the paint even matched my room. I did have to find and paint the "&" sign to finish it off.
I even hung everything up all by myself last weekend while the husband was working. They're all centered and straight and everything! ;)
So here's a look at the room all put together. The wall décor (on the right) I made a while back.
reupholstered chair and the console table Sam built.
console table for the living room. He had the upper part all together and called me out to the garage to check it out and I had to tell him "um, honey...I didn't want the DVD player in the middle I wanted it hidden behind the shutters on the side." We were eventually going to put something there anyway so - bonus! I just need a couple more accessories or books on those shelves. I'm sure I will run across the perfect thing eventually, but it doesn't detract from the room as is.
So one more time - this is the Before photo taken December 2010 when we had just purchased the house and our furniture hadn't even arrived.
And in case you were wondering - yes, this is the ONE room in the house that stays this clean almost all the time. I even make my bed every morning ;)
