Before and After

Ok so it was time for an upgrade thats for sure. I am so blessed to be able to do this. Birthdays are great! :) Thanks to my mom and my husband - I love the way my new room looks. The dirty, worn, floral is gone. Now I have this lush darker comfortable set. I was waiting to post pictures because I got a new lamp for my birthday but I had to go get it from Kirklands. We were able to do that this weekend and I love my new lamp. The old one I have had for quite some time. I think I have had it longer than I had the old living room suit. I remember when I got it. I WON it. Actually I won "Mother of the Year" that year. OK so it had nothing to do with my mothering skills. I just dropped my name in a box and it was chosen! What a great prize I got. There was a limosine ride, $100 free groceries, a dozen roses, dinner for two at Cock of the Walk, and the lamp of course. I think thats it. Maybe more, but what a prize it was! That was fun. It was also a very long time ago. Definitely time to retire the lamp. Did I mention that I love my new lamp? Thanks Kids, yall did good!

So this was before--

isn't it amazing how new furniture can change a room so much?! VERY NICE :) and the hardwood floors (which i know you've had) make the room look SO much bigger than when it had carpet :)

Good for you on the new furniture. I want new furniture and mine isn't even that old...it just hasn't held up while. My family is partially to blame, but I guess the quality was as good as it should have been either. Oh well...I still like the color...I just wished it looked newer...not 10 years old.
