Before & After

We have done a lot of "redoing" to our house since we bought it in February. I think it's all I do anymore. But I'm not complaining, because when we're done with a project, the way I feel makes it all worth it. Cause WE did it!
We actually redid the livingroom the very first weekend after we closed on the house. Kenny had scheduled the carpet man to lay the carpet on Monday, and we had only gotten keys the Friday before. So we had to move move move. This is the 1960s version of the livingroom, complete with heavy, thick, dusty drapes and nasty old carpet:

Of course the TV was added recently. I guess it's been a dream of Kenny's to have a TV like that for a long time....he's been bugging me about getting one FOREVER. I kept putting him off and telling him we didn't have room in the apartment, wait until we were in the house....I ran out of excuses. But I have to admit I love it too:)

Lovin' it! And, I fought the big screen battle for years when I was married, then had to suck it up and admit I liked it! It's great to watch movies on...if he wants surround sound, go ahead and cave - you won't regret it! ha!
