Quick Update on our Traditional Living Room Makeover

We’re a little more than half way through our Living Room Makeover and it’s already looking so fantastic, guys!

Making Progress on this Traditional Living Room Makeover

Welcome, welcome. For those of you that are new here, hi! I’m Stephanie. I blog about all things DIY and Home Remodeling happening in my house.

I’ll be revealing the full Living Room makeover soon. I can tell already, it’s going to be pretty dramatic, friends. Technically, it looks nearly done already.

But, I have a few more projects to finish. Upholstering one of our chairs with some amazing blue velvet fabric is the last big project. I can’t wait to see it.

So…maybe I should get it started. Yikes, so much to do.

Here’s a little reminder of some of the before photos for this Farmhouse meets Traditional Living Room Makeover. You can see all of the Living Room before photos here.

I love how light and fresh this room looks now with much lighter paint.

I’ve finished building 2 new side tables and a console table for this room too. I LOVE building furniture so that I can get the exact size, colors, and design options I want in a space.

I built 2 of these DIY Pedestal Side Tables for this makeover. I wanted a round top to go with the new layout. I’m pretty excited about how these turned out. 🙂
I love this DIY Farmhouse Console Table Plans with Drawers! This tutorial is easy to follow, with loads of pictures. This table would work great as an entry table or in a Dining Room too. #ConsoleTable #EntryTable #DIYFurniture #AbbottsAtHome
Can’t wait to see how this DIY Farmhouse Console Table looks behind my couch!

I’ve been updating most of the rooms in my house with a light paint color on the walls. It always makes any room I try it in look so much lighter, brighter, and BIGGER!

How a light colored paint scheme has transformed this home and even made the crown molding and millwork pop! #LightWalls #WhiteWalls #GreyWalls #PaintIdeas
After spending a week on scaffolding, I finished painting the walls and ceiling Behr’s Sandstone Cove. I love how it makes our super chunky crown molding pop!

  • Build and Upholster 2 new DIY Ottomans

Wow! It's looking good! I wouldn't like to be up on scaffolding. Shoot, I don't even like to be standing on the floor paining! :D But I do love that color and the way it makes that gorgeous moulding pop. #GrandmasHouseLinkParty
