so admidst our bathroom reno (yes, the one that was started in march that is still going on.....thanks hubby) we also decided to reno our living room. we ripped up the carpet and refinished the original hardwood floors. white paint is coming, and new couches have just been ordered, set to arrive on wednesday. even just the floor alone makes it look 1000000000000000000 times better. i forgot to take an actual "before" photo so please excuse that this is from christmas, it's all i have. but do note the hideous blue carpet. and wood panel wall.
and "after" (but it's still in progress)
