It's official. The living room bay window curtain saga is over. We're finally done and things are looking much better. But before the big reveal, let's take a trip down memory lane...shall we?
When we first moved in, I took less than 10 pictures of the house in its current state. I was overwhelmed with boxes, unpacking, never-ending snow, and everything else that comes with moving into your first place...eight days before Christmas.
Here is a picture from January 2, 2011. It took us longer than I am willing to admit on the World Wide Web for us to get rid of that tree. But as you can see, this was the former layout of the living room. When the tree finally got the boot, we simply swiveled the loveseat so it was perpendicular to the sofa and that is where it stayed until six days ago.
here, when I moved the loveseat away from the windows to paint the window area, I noticed how much bigger the room seemed, and I started to get used to how spacious it felt (I hate cramped furniture - more than I hate cords!). I also love the hardwood floors that were more-or-less covered by the bulky loveseat.
