Living Room Progress

I feel like we've come a long way since moving back into our house in October. Walls have been torn down. Carpet has been installed. Furniture has been purchased. And coffee tables, curtains, and more have been DIY'ed.

The room that has received the most love and attention is our living room - which makes sense since this is where we spend the most of our time!

Since we've done soooo much in the last 10 months, I wanted to share our progress.

Stage 1: Our living room pre-rennovation. (2006 - Oct 2012)

Stage 2: Tear down those walls!! (October 2012)

Stage 3: Introducing my new living room color scheme (mint!), but holding down the fort with the old furniture. (November 2013)

Stage 4: New furniture and DIY'ed accents!

Can you believe how different the room looks?!? It's so much brighter, happier, and of course much more open.

I'm only a few elements away from my final vision for this room. Area rug, TV stand,  bookshelf/side table and a couple of odds & ends are all I have left! 

Here's a recap of our Living Room to-do list:

Install board & batten or chair rail
Install hooks next to front door for a make-shift "mud room"
Paint interior of front door to match with color palette
Update trim
Crown molding? 
Tear down wall for one, big living/dining space
        Fix flooring
        Sheetrock connecting walls
        Rewire electrical
        Move heating vents
        Paint the room one color
Fix storage closet door so it stays on the track
Paint frames & artwork to match color palette
Make/paint a big letter J for above TV
Sand & re-stain the TV stand to match color palette
Paint leather entertainment boxes to match color palette
Buy or Make:
        Couch
        Coffee Table
        Side Chairs
