Living Room Before and After

Most of you know that JRP and I are moving to JAPAN in 6 weeks to teach English!
I know crazy right after we spent a year fixing up a house here and then just moved into it? Well thankfully we won't have to sell our house or give away our puppies, but it will be sad to leave it after all the blood, sweat, tears, heart, and soul that has gone into this house! I will try to post before and after pictures of every room before we leave and then this blog will be all about Japan!!
Without further ado here is the first before and after, the living room!

Let me just take you back for a minute of how it actually looked because these pictures do not do it justice. Ceiling tiles that were so nasty and falling down everywhere. Holes in almost every inch of the walls. Huge floor heater vent! Scratched up disgusting floors that were covered in dust! A different texture on almost every wall. Not to mention the walls everywhere that made it look so tiny!
As you can see we haven't hung any pictures up yet which turned out to be a good thing since we are leaving, but I think it still looks great without any!
The new blue chair we bought a few weeks ago and didn't realize it blends into our walls we are going to have to get something to go behind it to break it up and we are wanting an ottoman and the penny table we are making is going by it!

If you need a side by side:
From Old and out of dated to modern and fabulous (or at least I think so, but I am biased!)
