First, let's remember where it came from. Water-stained popcorn ceiling, tacky brass fixtures, and poopy brown walls.

And now it looks like this. . .
You can't see all the recessed lights in this picture, but we have 2 rows with 3 lights each. And they're on a separate switch so you can choose to have only one row on if desired. Ya know, mood lighting :)
The front side of the room.
This picture is the most zoomed out I could get.
This is the view as soon as you walk in our front door.
This is a close-up of our white display cabinet. I got this for free off Craigslist! We are a no-tv family. We may or may not get one in the future, but for now it just gives us more time to paint and conquer house projects :)
A few close-ups of our fall decorations.
*My amazingly-talented husband painted that bird. Isn't she pretty?
Our guard cat. Seriously, check out her smile.
And lastly, the ceiling fixtures I attacked with a can of spray paint. I used Rustoleum Painter's Touch Ultra Cover, color: Flat Black. It took 3 thin and even coats to achieve the black beauty look.
So there it is, our living room after the ceiling room demo but still before the arrival of decor/loveseat.
Here is the list of what we'd still like to do in that room:
- Hang art/pictures on walls
- Get a rug for the front door
- Get a loveseat
- Paint trimwork
- Find/make throw pillows (I can't seem to find ones I like anywhere, so I may end up having to make some)
Okay, if anyone is still here after my ridiculously long post - what do you think? Do you know of any places to find great textured off-white throw pillows? What are your weekend projects?
Alright alright, I'm done.
