Living Room sneak peak.

I'm just about done with my parent's Living Room re-do. When we started the overhaul back in March, my goal was to have it completed in time for my mom's surprise 60th birthday party (which was TODAY- more on that to come!). It's not complete, but we're pretty close. 
Still to do:
  • hang curtains in dining room (LR and DR are open to each other)
  • getting throw pillows for the couches to bring in color
  • hang large mirror (already purchased) over the couch
  • finding a tray for the ottoman coffee table
  • final decorative touches
Here's a peak of the completed photo wall- I love how it turned out! 

Before: I can't tell you how much I adored looking at pictures of myself holding a fake flower as a wee lad, and my cheesy senior portraits. I shed many, many tears knowing that they were no longer going to be on display. 

After: A little more updated, a little more clean and modern. The lighting here hardly reflects the true wall color (the picture is dark) and frame color (frames are more of a warm pewter, not gold), but it's exactly what I envisioned, and mom likes it. I took all of the pictures in the frames, too.
I'll take more pictures soon- the LR was a little out of order today for the party. Stay tuned!
