So what started out as just needing a new couch and chair and ottoman turned into a living room and dining room makeover. I wish I had good before pictures, but I don't. I was just so eager to get this party started that I forgot to take before pictures. Because we have an open concept house, I thought I had to have our living room and dining room one color. So the entire living room and dining room was the same color yellow. I
Here are some pictures to get an idea of what the living room and dining room looked like (ignore the various holiday and party decor):

Pillars Separating the Living Room and Dining Room
Dining Room (this is all I got...):
And here's my new living room and dining room! I love it!!!
The pillars and fireplace were painted "Silhouette" in a matte finish. I eliminated the cornice treatment and just went with a plain curtain rod. The curtains are from JC Penney. They worked perfectly! The frames are from Hobby Lobby that I placed fabric in. I put new lamp shades on the lamps from Target. The living room color paint is Kingsport Gray. The entryway wall and dining room are Shaker Beige.
Here is the fireplace :)
The canvases are from Ballard Design. They were in our bedroom. The rug is from Joss and Main.
My black and white photo wall.
I took a grain sack, cut the back off and put it in an embroidery hoop that I painted the Silhouette color. The mirror, pin board and "C" are from Hobby Lobby.
I took leftover fabric and put it in embroidery hoops that I painted as well.
I really did not buy anything new for the dining room. I did a lot of "shopping my house." Our amazing painters (who are TEACHERS by trade - shout out to the teachers!) helped me pick the colors and also helped me shop my house and rearrange things so it looks like have a new house. I've had these barn windows for 10 years as well as the antique silverware in the shadow boxes. The antique silverware is from my Great Aunt.
My painters/teacher/interior decorators had me rearrange my Ikea frames and paint them the Silhouette color. I love them!
I bought this shelf at Kohl's on super sale with another 30% off. It's not the highest quality, but it does the job! Everything on this shelf I had (except the monogram). The curtains are from Pottery Barn Teen of all places!
I thought I'd miss all the color from the previous living room and furniture. I'm not. I absolutely love my new rooms!!!
Thanks for looking!
