Living... the room.

This week, I decided to join Kelly's Party:



I have to give you the before and afters to truly make this story complete.

This is a picture of our living room before:

It is the only picture that I have pre-ownership. Sorry for the bad lighting.

The living room was nice, but it just wasn't my style... so...

floor cleaned

I pulled up all the carpet and started to paint the walls a new shade of yellow!

Here is my living room now. Ignore the pinkish pillows, my mom and I were experimenting. To fully understand my mom's influence on my home, please read this post about my kitchen and my $9 curtains! I love my living room, and it is definitely where we spend the majority of our time.

However, I think that the favorite part of my living room is the view...

We live in Texas, folks. You need a view of the cows!

Wow, the redo is great! Love the floors! Great call. Love the view too! No cows here in MA lol (well, I'm sure there are cows here somewhere, just not within my view)

Yep...you got to have the view of the cows in Texas. I have them from my office window (my school campus sits on 103 acres with a pasture adjacent to it) and my future home will as well!! You have an awesome home! Have a great weekend.

Many Blessings,

Amanda

for diapers--what about a crisis pregnancy center, church nursery or a local dr's office (mine always has extras for after weigh-ins) I don't know if they use disposable diapers in India, do they?
