Updating Our House

I have been updating our house.  I don’t think I put the living room update on the blog, so I will have to do that.  Today I got new carpet on the stairs and the hallway upstairs.  I have been wanting to do it for a long time, but with all of the kids etc. you wonder if it will be worth it.

Anyway, I  love, love, love it!

We are turning this area into a mini media room for the kids.  We have already put up 2 flat screen TVs.  My husband is working on making the wires disappear into the walls.   I am super excited to give this area a purpose.  I haven’t known what to do up there for 15+ years.  A friend who is helping me decorate came up with this idea and I love it.  To be fair to my husband, he did tell me to use the space, but I didn’t have any idea how to pull it off.  Sometimes all you need a fresh pair of CREATIVE eyes.  Creative eyes that are able to see the big picture.  Those are not my talents, to say the least!

Here are some pictures of the before and the current.  I can’t do the after…well, until after… and that may be a little while 🙂

Sorry, if you made it this far, you must be bored out of your head.  I am using this as a diary of sorts.  Thanks for your understanding!
