Working On The House... upstairs family room

I love our fireplace, but I am not a fan of the wood! And I really don't like white walls! So after a few coats of primer and paint we have an enjoyable place to sit and relax!


p.s. it is a little hard to see, but i got the coffee table at the thrift store for $1.50!


  1. You are amazing! I bet you are having so much fun. I am such a slow decorator. I take a long time to decide what to do and have to make sure it is PERFECT before I settle...
    Wanna help me with paint colors? I'm working on my bedroom, master bath, kids bath amd downstairs bath. ;)
    Not like you have anything ELSE to do!!!

  2. Your house is looking so great!! I'm trying to talk Steve into letting me paint our cabinets white, SO JEALOUS!! You are awesome!

  3. Can I just say... WOW!!! It is so amazing what you can do Elise! Honestly, I didnt think that the before pictures were bad at all, but the AFTER is amazing! You should have your own decorating show. Oprah would just love you!
