More House Updates

So during the month of October we were still truckin' along on the house. You saw the updates in the living room, aka lounge, and that room pretty much looks the same. Still no baseboards. but this past Friday I had the piano moved from my parents house to my house. And I'm super excited about that!

Onto the dining room. You can sort of see it in this picture here, but the ceiling had this brown border painted around it and I hated that color.

I ended up finding some paint in the basement that was a match to the cream color on the ceiling, so I painted over the brown. We got our dining room table delivered and we painted the walls Behr Boston Fern. I wasn't totally ecstatic about the color when we picked it, but we were sort of on a time crunch and I just wanted SOMETHING on those walls. I was going out of town for work so it was up to Jim to finish this room up before a party I was having the following weekend. Well it all worked out and the color is finally starting to grow on me.

The pendant light is from Bellacor and the barstools are from Bed Bath & Beyond.

And for some reason I LOVE the way our hallway turned out. New sconces, new paint, new closet doors and painted white trim. Looks so much better! It is sort of hard to tell, but the ceiling is just flat white and walls are Behr Reflecting Pool.

The sconces are from Bellacor and the new hall light is from Lighting Direct.

So we still need to work on those baseboards and then I think our next project might be the laundry room.
