OK, here is the beginning post of the big reveal! I forgot to take "after" pictures when the house was done and still empty. So now, I have to wait until each room is clean and then take a picture. This could take a while, LOL. Let's start with the upstairs living room. I tried to take pictures all the way around, so forgive the multitude of shots.
I love the white piano with the gray walls.
A bookcase fit perfectly in the nook by the fireplace. I am going to trim it out so it looks like a built-in.
The gray fireplace tiles go so well with the paint!
Once the gallery wall was up (yesterday) it felt so much more like home! Funny how that is.
Here's a close-up of the shelves. When we moved I told DH that I was in charge of this bookcase. I took all our prettiest books, ditched the dust covers (they are safe and sound if we need them again later), and styled it very simply with some display items. I think it looks pretty good! Teeny Bopper told me last night how much she loves sitting and looking at the shelves. I would call that a success, yes?
A close up of our window trim. We had to do it to cover the drywall we had to put in to fix the windows. I am kind of glad we had to fix them now, because I like this trim so much.
