Before and After's

Happy Wednesday all! I hope you are enjoying your week so far...

So sorry for the lack of posts this week, but just a few more days and we will have Internet up in our home and start posting more regularly! whoo hoo!

Until then... I thought it would be fun to show you some before and afters in our home...Keep in mind we still have a long way to go and but so happy with what we have so far :)

Here is what the door in the dining area looked like before:

And here is what it looks like now:
The shutters open up to let more light in too

What do you think about our new couch? We purchased it from Living Spaces. Don't worry, the pillows are not staying. What type of pillows would you recommend? Color?
