A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

Living Room Reveal...

What fun to enjoy a new living room...
Our recent project of sanding the floors and painting the 
walls made for some hectic days going into Christmas...
  ...but we are enjoying the lighter and whiter look 
we are pulling together.  We realize the walls
 are still a bit bare - we'll get there.

  A 'before' shot...
 and 'after'...
Merry Christmas to us!
 (Those wood base lamps will be getting a make over too... all in good time!)

The only monies spent were for paint, floor sander and 
polyurethane.  All other furnishings - we 'shopped our house'.
  Some things were repainted to bring them into our 'new' 
shabby white look.... using on-hand 'oops' paint of course. 
(Do you keep 'oops' paint on hand?)

O, your "new" room is just beautiful. I love the bright, new color and your floors are so pretty.
We plan to paint our new home but will wait awhile until I get rested up from Christmas...I am such a titty baby. :)

Very nice, Joyce and hubby! I like the white look... easy to keep switching out things from time to time that are white or chippy / shabby.

We definitely have OOPS paint on hand!!!!
