The livingroom Make-Over

 You can see our tester pain between the window and doorway.  I chose the colors based on a pair of my favorite ceramic candlesticks.
 We were THRILLED that our flooring arrived an entire week early.  The original plan was for me to do a yard sale in the front yard while Kevin laid the flooring down but since it was here an entire week early we got right to work (and he was helpful at the yard sale!).  It was a win-win for the both of us since we could help each other out!
 Once we had the walls painted and the carpet ripped up, the girls tried out the bare floor....
And, since our lives revolve around these gorgeous girls, it only seems appropriate that I throw in a picture of them too.
 The first two planks are down....SUPER EXCITING!!  Once we had it ordered, I couldn't think about anything else.  I carried the sample around with me and showed EVERYONE who would take a look!  I hear "it's the simple things" that makes all the difference in the world!
 Here is Kevin, diligently at work....
 Once we had it all laid out, the girls had to take another turn around the room, smelling and leaving hair remnants as proof that this is "their" house!
 I was so excited about the flooring I almost forgot to add some pics of the paint.  We are so happy to be rid of this awful pinkish-beige color from the living room.  The entire house was painted that color when I moved in.

The girls are doing great on the floors! I was skeptical at first but this time of year (especially) they are enjoying the cool floor to lay on! I just got curtains put up so I'll try and find the time to sit and blog a bit this week and post a new "after" pic!
