Before and After: Living Room Tour

Finally, I have gotten it together enough to feel comfortable showing the progress we made on our house.... well you can at least see the living room. Our bedroom is almost complete too, but I have one expensive little project I want to complete before I post ALL the before and afters of that.
Here ya go! Hope ya'll enjoy

This little corner has by far been the hardest area for me to vision what I wanted. Initially, I thought a large palm would be my answer... until that palm wasn't happy with the light and started turning brown. It has since been transplanted to the patio and is much happier.
This little combo is here to stay. I LOVE it and the little white storage box holds all the blankets for when we have company or the weather turns cool.

Dining Area
And THIS is what are living room looks like 6 days out of the week. Just sayin.... and yes, Mr. Horton joins us regularly.

Be looking out for a yummy and healthy recipe post tomorrow.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
