LR in progress~

Today I finally had a chance to start playing with the new living room!
I was waiting to share pictures until things are 'done', since there is such a huge transformation.... but I realized that it will be a long time until things are "completed", so what the hay, here they are, "in-progress".
Left Living Room wall untouched. Wood paneling and 1974 striped shag rug.

Today, from a bit of a distance... that's my mom.
Slider before....

Today, with Xena watching the Bafflehead ducks swimming in the pond.
(ignore cluttery deck)
Shelves are still a cluttered mess... only unpacked, not arranged.

New couch comes Friday.... will retake pics.
I bought Jackie's purple couch and chairs... totally fun.
(Jackie is moving to a condo in the Pearl. Same time. It's like we are giving birth at the same time. Totally useless to help one another... plus it's funny she is moving to the city and I got a farm. Maybe we will trade homes on the weekends? hmmm)

Walls are still painted paneling, but the paint will just not stick properly to it, so before we trim everything out, Paul plans to drywall. Still need drapes.... no time to shop for now.
I LOVE how my fancy rug looks over the neutral carpet we chose.
So cozy.

Off to enjoy my last evening with my mom before she flies back to PA!

Love the photos, can't wait to see it all in person. Wish I could come up with the couches on Friday!!!

Yes, it is crazy that we are moving a month apart and we do have the country and city mouse going on. Swapping on the weekends will be fun, but we might have to plan for a little crossover time so that we can see each other!

Miss ya
