Dining and Living Room Makeover


Do you hear me screaming?  Really, you don't?  I am very surprised!  I just finished redoing my Living and Dining Room and every time I walk through it I scream.  This isn't a bad scream.  It is a very happy, that I can't believe this is my room scream.  I can't wait to share these rooms with you. 


 Now onto the Living Room.  Here is the before picture.  Don't look at the red lamp shade, I was deciding if I liked it.  Not bad but nothing too exciting.

Love these.  Got these from Hobby Lobby in the clearance sections. (Woot!  Woot!)
Decor Photo
More of the new decor.  (LOVE!)

Pillows by April Wolfe aka Wolfelicious
Took my old pillows and made covers for them. Yes, I made the covers. :) 
Lamp Photo
The lamp shades we got have a design on the inside so when the light is on you see the design.



Unfortunately, I forgot to get a before picture of my Dining Room. :(  Sorry.

Here is the after picture.

Love these candles holders.  One of my many finds at the Hobby Lobby.  I think they go perfect with the rest of the decor.



I love, love, love, my new rooms.  I want to scream every time I walk by the dining room. I just love the rug.  As you can tell I have been very busy so far this summer.

Thanks for checking out my new rooms.  Have you entered my giveaway?

  3. Beautiful! I am amazed at your productivity! I have yet to be very productive this summer... I just want to sleep and blog stalk. Lol. I am way more motivated during the school year. Summer comes and I crash. Your rooms are beautiful!

    1. Thanks! Now all I want to do is sleep and blog stalk but I have things for my classroom I want to make. Hopefully the weather will get better so I feel more motivated.

  11. What a cute makeover! I am trying to work on mine, but my husband's taste is stuck back in the 1990's. He wants everything to be hunter green and navy blue. No thanks lol.

  12. LOVE the makeovers!!!! We rent our house, so there isn't a lot I can do, but I love the idea of just adding new lamp covers and a rug!! Simple changes, but dramatic effects!

    BRAVO!!!
