Living Room Done!

I thought the living room was going to be easy and it was... until I got to the outer wall. There was so much detail on that wall it was crazy. I spent most of my time just on that one wall.

The fireplace was something I was looking forward to and I wasn't disappointed while working on it. I loved the way the marble mantle turned out and all the little details. I loved the little painting that I glued to the wall and then framed with dimensional paint.

My stuff is a little different from the book but that's o.k. I didn't do the walls two-toned, I just let the wood color show through on parts of it. I didn't light up my candles on each side of the fireplace either. And I love the way the embossed floors turned out too.

But that chandelier is just the most darling thing in the room... and those little candles. I can hardly wait to get started on the furniture. But before I get started on that, I have one more room to decorate. Next - it's upstairs to the boudoir. It's got a fireplace too. And some built-ins. Can't wait to get started on the floor!


  1. That's very, very pretty! Love the fireplace and the "trumeau" as well. :)
    Great job! And by the way...I don't know anyone who did this house so fast!

    1. Thank you so much! I am skipping over a lot of detail so I can get the rooms themselves done. The furniture will take me a while I imagine but yes - I do feel like I am on a mission to complete it. Thanks!
