Sitting Room Renovations

We have a formal living room or a sitting room in the very front of our house & it's the first thing you see when you walk in.

It had housed my futon from my duplex days and some other older, assorted furniture that H hated with a passion.

Our front door was also rather plain. It was needing some attention. Instead of resealing it, we decided to just get a new one.

We've officially redecorated every other room in the house & this was our last one to tackle.

The only thing that survived the remodel in this room was the entrance table.

This really ugly light had to go....

This is the one that hung in our dining room and it was history too.

Something inspired me to paint the one big wall & so I went with blue.

So sometime in September- we had a bright blue wall. Then we were off in search of new furniture- a love-seat couch & 2 sitting chairs to match.

We found a new front door, and decided it was time to go ahead and change out all the locks/knobs on our exterior doors.

I was a wee bit nervous about having a front door that was semi-see through, but it's working out just fine & I love all the light that it lets in.

We went to many stores before we found the right couch & some chairs we loved. H didn't want an ordinary coffee table, so we found something funky & artsy.

I went through hell & back to get this mirror- including 2 broken deliveries, hanging nightmares & a local glass repair.

A new entrance rug & mom painted a glass art piece to mimic our table and patterns on our chairs.

I really like the new dining room fixture & our plants in the corners.

We love our room! I wished we'd done it sooner. We sit in here at least once or twice a week so visit after work or have a glass of wine. It's much more cozy and conducive to conversation than our living room with the TV & dogs running around.

We finished up with some landscaping the front yard to match the backyard.

The stones and pretty flowers are such a nice finishing touch, but I can't believe what a difference the new front door made to our house.

GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: DONE- I think we've officially finished with all the big house projects on our list.
