Living Room Makeover Part 1

It's the time of year again where I am swamped every weekend taking fall family photos.  It's also getting to be the time of year where we move back inside the house to do some projects.  The last two weekends we have been working in the living room.  I wanted to show you the progress so far.
We painted 2 of the walls this beautiful aqua/grey color called Neo-Mediterranean Mist from Home Depot.  Once we had the walls painted, I started getting stuff hung on the walls.  I still have a chicken wire window pane, a farmhouse sign and we will see what else left to hang.   
We still have to finish staining the wood paneled walls and add paneling to the other wall that you can't see.  We took down the horrible valance that was hanging above the window and hung a weathered piece of rustic wood.  We had a little hiccup with the curtain rod but once we get that figured out, I will be hanging drop cloth curtains. 
I have discovered how much fun making vinyl signs is recently and I have made a few for our living room makeover.  See the 2 dogs on the couch?  This sign is perfectly fitting for them and the dog not pictured!  I love this sentiment so much and it is so true.
I love these chevron arrows and had Cody help me make these.  I stained them with vinegar and steel wool and they are a nice touch to the look I am going for in this room.
I got this big white clock on sale at Lowe's for $11 this summer and I love it.  I made the sign (not perfect, but I am still learning this vinyl stuff), got the P at Michael's and the key is a ceramic thrift store find that I painted white.  More will be added and I will be sure to share the completed living room makeover once we are done!

What fun, Trisha. You got a lot done and it looks good. Bet you will be happy to have the staining done and your curtains up, too. It all takes time and you are getting there! So far-so good. Love the color, too. xo Diana
