The [Main] Floor

I am finally getting around to posting some pictures of our house. We have been working so hard to get the main floor up to par. We had to hire some help to patch up all of the walls (and I mean ALL of the walls!), we painted almost ALL of the walls (by ourselves!!), we got the carpets cleaned, and we had to buy a few pieces of furniture to fill this house.

First are the before pics...
{View from the entry: Stairs to the right, living room to the left, office in the glass doors, down the hallway opens up to family room, dinning and kitchen.}

{There were a number of holes just like this one. This was a fist hole... you could see the knuckle marks and all!}

{The fireplace. They ripped the plasma TV right out of the wall.}

{The kitchen. It was in pretty good shape...}

{...except for this minor hole...}

{And my favorite part of the house...the pantry!}

Here are the after pics:
{The Living Room}

{We got remnant pieces of carpet and made runners in the hallways}

{The Office}

{The Family Room. Everything in this room is new...TV, couch and rug.}

{My Sister helped me make these pillows. I showed her a picture out of Potterybarn and she made them. She also made my kitchen curtain!}

{The Mudroom/Roxy's room}

{The Kitchen}

We haven't hardly touched the upstairs yet, but when I get that up to par I will be sure to post some pics!
