Before & After (Living Room/Dining Room)

I've been meaning to post before and afters of our LR/DR, but I've been putting it off in the hopes that I'd get some better photos...alas, I cannot figure out how to get quality photos in that dark room (w/o using my 50mm, which won't get wide angles) so I've given up and will just post what I have!

This may be a long one.  And please indulge my photography obsession (I'm not very good, but I'm trying!) by forgiving my attempt at "artistic" even though they really don't show anything of value.


 I couldn't find pillows I liked so I made these.  I heart the fabric.
 China cabinet.
 I also couldn't find chair covers that I liked so I had these made.

We recently switched out the DR chandelier, and I'm in love with this one.
 Once again, I couldn't find pictures that I liked so I bought a hard cover book with rose pictures, cut them out and framed them...inexpensive and beautiful!


  1. Youre gonna laugh, but I came across your blog because I googled the RR Tortilla Bread Pudding recipe! lol... So then I had to be nosey and look around! Your living room and bathroom are GORGEOUS!!! I absolutely love the dark floor and everything else you did in the living room/dining room. You are an incredibly creative woman! Anyways, if you don't mind, I'd like to come look around every once in awhile! Have a wonderful week and enjoy that beautiful baby girl!
