New Years Project

I don't know what possessed me to do this other than its the only time I have had enough time off to tackle it but TJ and I rang in the New Year painting.  We have been in our house over 3 years now and over the last few months we have slowly been remodeling.  We built a "spec" house so it was all your basic stuff like linoleum (how ever you spell that word), all the paint on the walls was all one color in EVERY room, and the carpet must be industrial grade or either its the cheapest the builder could possibly have used.  So we put in tile in the kitchen and both bathrooms, painted the kitchen, and now have painted the den.  I got some inexpensive new curtains and Mom gave us some art work.  The painting was much easier in the den then the kitchen...a lot less to move and not so many nooks and crannies...basically 4 big walls.  We had a good time and it really looks great!  Our next project is the laminate flooring...I can't wait to get this carpet out of here.  Here are some pictures. 

The picture on the left was our wall above the couch and the picture of the group just shows you the other side where our entertainment center is.  We had two deer heads (those are not returning) and then you can see the old mantle decor...and now...

After all that hard work they had to rest!!!  I am so thankful for such a wonderful husband and the sweetest dog ever!  Happy New Year!
