Living Room Revamp Part 1

When we started working on the house, the husband and I came to an agreement. We would only paint every other weekend so we don't wear ourselves out. See how long that lasted?
Not long at all. But, the kids were on fall break this week so I took a three day weekend. And I couldn't stand to look at my living room any longer!
Over the past few weeks DH has been busy! He removed the drop ceiling in the living room and ripped down all of the lovely 80's wall paneling. The previous owners painted ALL the paneling peach. Lovely huh?
Here is the living room the weekend we moved in. Even our stuff couldn't camoflauge the peach!
We didn't finish EVERYTHING this weekend, but we did get quite a bit knocked out. We painted the walls with Sherwin Williams Svelte Sage (this may be my favorite sage color EVER). Then we just got to work on the decor.
We used an old barnwood frame I had from the apartment for the R.
I covered the backing of the frame in burlap. In order to hold the burlap down to the cardboard I just used some adhesive spray glue. Then, I hot glued the R to the top of the burlap. Easy Peasy.
The birds are stickers that we made! We used my Cricut and my Home Decor cartridge to cut them out with red vinyl and the hubby stuck them to the wall for me!
I can't wait to get some more done, but we've already made a lot of progress!
More to come! :)

Peach attractive..LOL. I can't talk though, as when we moved in, the living room was Pepto Bismol Pink (just like all of the other rooms ::sigh::) Glad you're making progress!
