|Needs: New door, No wall paper.|
Of course, you can also see the biggest change to make is getting rid of that wall paper, and painting the room. Since our sofa is a dark chocolate brown, I'm going to go with a very light brown, maybe a nutmeg, with a darker trim. Probably not very original, but most definitely very me, and nice.
|Maybe some lighting, and definitely some new curtains.|
|I can't wait to do everything, and have this be my before picture.|
I'm also going to paint the fireplace, (Twilight Taupe) and add a lovely hearth rug for in front of the fireplace. The DVD rack thing will be moved, as well as the light. I think above the mantle also needs some art work, as well as some plants on the mantle, and by the fireplace. Small orange trees, anyone?
|Do your eyes burn looking at that wall paper?|
It's hard to see in the next picture, but the very corner of the room, where the couch is against the wall, sticks out immensely. It's actually a linen closet on the other side of the house. I'm so tempted to knock that down... More of the same plan here. Remove wall paper, paint, add some wall art. I'd also like to add some wall sconces.
|Because I live here, and it makes my eyes burn.|
So I guess in the end, the one thing that doesn't need changing is the carpet. it has nice carpet, although it's hard to tell at times, as my living room is usually covered in kids toys...
I think the first step is going to be to slowly remove all the wall paper, scrubbing section by section until it's read for the first coat of paint. Then we'll paint, add the bookshelves, and change the curtains. After that, it'll be a "one piece at a time" change, maybe starting with the TV stand, and ending with the door.
Talking about this has made me totally psyched, and I'm so tempted to just tear off one panel of wall paper, just because it would feel so good.
