Chez Westy - Living Room

The living room was ugly. REALLY UGLY.

I mean it.  Look.

Seriously ugly.

The carpet was likely original (nearly 20 years old... cringe), the walls were that lovely flat beige Kroger bag color, the light fixtures were all amber and had warm bulbs in them.  Everything was beige and yellow and tomb-like.

The first thing that had to go was that carpet.

Safety first!  God only knows what was flying around in the air when we ripped that stuff up.

Then came sanding & patching the walls.



I know why landlords like flat paint now.  It hides a MULTITUDE of dings, dents, you name it.

SO MUCH SPACKLE.  SO MUCH SANDING.  Lather, rinse, repeat.


Let the painting begin!






Then it was time to prep for the new floor.

This stuff smells like toxic death.  I wouldn't recommend doing it unless you can open the windows.
And then, new floor!

This was about 10 pm, the night before the movers were due to bring the furniture.  But it's done!

The puppies agree that the new floor is a good choice.
Also, some new window coverings.




The living room is still a work in progress.  We are still working on where the furniture should go.  Also, we have decided we need some shelving (with doors so prying puppy noses, paws and teeth can't get into it) that will be procured down the line.  It already looks so different!  Once we get all the furniture in there and things on the walls, I'll update!
