I think we can officially say that the living room is done, save a little furniture and artwork rearranging here and there. Oh, and new curtains are needed.
To recap, the living room project included adding the window you see here, skim-coating the textured walls, new paint, refinishing the wood floors, caulking the ceiling molding, installing a ceiling fan, and making a bulletin board-type frame for the Paris map. Remember what it looked like before?
I've been using this French linen sheet as a "slipcover" on our ugly couch-- it was a wonderful 50-cent estate sale find. However, I just checked what they are selling for on ebay ($300-400+!) and I'm wondering if I should rethink this sofa cover-up strategy!
