We finished the re-do at Pat’s which included her front room, formal dining room, kitchen dining & family room. Not sure if you’ll be able to tell in these pics but Pat first had the interior of the house painted. All of her walls went from white to a light gray/brown/beige color – kind of a creamy mushroom. The paint alone made a huge difference. Changing the walls from white to mushroom made it feel sooooo much more comfy and homey. She had the same drapes and triangle valance in the front room & formal dining area. They were hung on double curtain rods – we removed the valance, moved the drapes to the front rod & purchased sheer panels for the back rods. Yes, her carpet is purple!! Kind of a rich plum color so we added some sage green as an accent color. We added new art on the wall behind the couch and new toss pillows. We moved the curio cabinet out of the front room and replaced it with a cabinet that stores all her movies. We turned the area rug so the length of the rug would coordinate with the length of the couch. In the entry way, we removed the halltree that collected jackets, shoes, etc. and replaced it with the table, lamp & canvas art. Her front door is just to the right of this table and on the opposite side of her front door we hung art & a coat rack along with a large basket to collect shoes, so in reality she didn’t loose any storage. I love the picture of her cutie granddaughter. We put the frame in an easel. These easel stands are great for displaying picture frames or special books. Formal dinning room tomorrow . . .
