Living Room...Day 2

I just realized it's been two months since my last post on the Day 1 of our Living Room refresh project...where did the time go? That's also how it has been before we were able to get back to this. With work and planning of our landscaping project and friend and family summer parties, we find that spare time is inexistente. Another reason I haven't been all that excited to get back to it is because a few major decoration items are still on order: arch-top mirror by Uttermost, Pemberly Wool Rug, Renaissance Architectural Prints, etc. I am that type of designer-wannabe that wishes to decorate the entire room in one shot...yeah I know, a typical rookie mistake.

Anyhoo, we finally dragged ourselves into painting the wainscoting in our living room. I smear to God that this is the last time I would ever paint such a big room with full-wall wainscoting! Do you know how painful it was to brush around the picture-frame mouldings? Extremely!

Here are a few pictures taken with two very sore arms.

Another angle of the living room in the new paint. Drapes need to be replaced as the color is not working for me.

Yet another corner of the same living room. The black cowhide chairs and couch were made by Coja Leather we purchased from De Boer's almost ten years ago for a fortune but I guess it was money well spent as they are still as good as new.
 And guess where I picked up this geometric throw from? Yep, HomeSense it is.
That's it for today. I guess I am "maturing" as a decorator for showing the progress and not just the end result, right? :-)
