Updated: Living and Dining Room Before & Afters

I kissed the old point-and-shoot goodbye and took some updated photos of our home with my new SLR camera. Granted I’m no photographer, but at least you get a clearer picture of what I’ve done to the place. I included some before shots of my living and dining room so you can see the hideousness I lived with prior to redoing our floors. I was a saint for putting up with the chipped marble and berber carpet for as long as I did. (The befores were taken as we were clearing house to prepare for the floor install. It was never that bare bones). Read more about these makeovers here, here, and here.

Black Beauty

I imagine it’s easier to identify a four-week-old fetus on an ultrasound than it is to pick the perfect shade of black paint. After staring at swatches for 72 hours I made the decision based on the name of the color. ¬†Black Beauty sounded more appealing than Twilight Zone, Onyx or Iron Mountain. And it’s as rich and gorgeous as I had¬†hoped. Benjamin Moore came through yet again.
