Before and After

Since I'm subbing this year, and the school year just started, I have had a little extra time on my hands. Although I have a huge test on Saturday that I should be studying for, I have decided to give my brain a break and give you a glimpse into the "finished" product of our family room, which I have been working on lately (with some major help from my sister-in-law!).

First, here's a couple pictures of the living room right after we moved in. The furniture we had in our apartment looked so tiny in our new family room!


And here it is today - new sectional, paint on the walls, curtains, and some new (read: re- purposed) decorations...




Although it is by no means a professional paint job, I am really proud of the hard work that Kelly and I put into it! We painted while Matt was out of town for work, and let me tell you, it was NOT easy to stand on the top rung of the ladder (the one that says do not stand or sit here) and stretch up on the tips of my toes to try to reach the high ceilings. If you are ever in my family room, please don't critique the edges too harshly! ;)

Now back to studying for my exam... if you think about it, pray for a miracle on Saturday!


Pin It!
