My First Molding

I broke down and took pictures with my crappy camera so I can show you more of my family room.  Here is the before:

It is a lot of brown and black.

So here is the new room:

LOVE IT!  First of all there is the molding on the wall.  I did it all by myself.  It was my first time doing molding and my first time using a saw.  It was awesome!  I really want power tools.   Once I cut the molding I started to think..."Ummm, what else can I cut."  More to come.  Oh and look I put pictures the the frames.  I would have thought it would have been weeks before I did that.


Then there is the chair.  I bought myself this chair for my birthday.  Happy Birthday to ME!  For those of you who are wondering I got it on Overstock along with some new 450 thread count sheets.  Seriously, I love their cheap shipping and they are the best place to get nice sheet for like $40 instead of like $100.


I really like the little piece of molding I did under the TV. Ahhh cute. 


I know you already saw this, but I just like to look at it.


And here is a long shot.  Yup, I took all those pictures and the whole time my boys were playing Wii, there was a tent in the middle of the room, and a birthday balloon was wondering through the room.  The best thing about the new room is how bright and cheery the room looks now.  I think we are going to finish it up on Saturday (minus the need of more accessories and pillows; those will have to wait).

Cross your fingers, I really want this project done.

  10. Kelly- I made the curtains. I believe the fabric is Harmony by Diversitex. If you google that you should be able to find some.
