The living room is progressing! I am actually just about finished with it. I would like to put a little more art on the wall by the hutch, but otherwise, I am quite happy with it.
We started weeks ago by painting the walls in the living room a color called Butter Pecan. It is a lot lighter of a color than I normally choose, but because we have so much dark furniture and the flooring we picked is dark, I thought we should go lighter. Plus, I don’t want to have to paint when we move in a few years!

After paint, we installed crown molding, flooring, and baseboard. That was a bigger project than I expected! I thought it would go really fast, but I had no idea how much prep work, measuring, cutting, and such needed to be done!
Once all of these steps were finished, it was time for the furniture and decor. I had no idea if all of our furniture would fit into this living room as it is considerably smaller than our old living room, but we made it work and I think it turned out nicely!

I am going to keep you in suspense on the look of the wall across from the TV. I haven’t finished with it so you will just have to wait and see!!!
