Before & After

As promised, a few pictures of our weekend project....

The entry before:

Note the coats threatening to eat the children...



Watch out! There is a coat rack monster behind you!



The entry now:


Hey, come on in! Hang up your coat! Stay awhile!


Living Room, before:

Adorable children playing spies in front of a wreck of an entertainment center. Note the drunken lamp in the background with the lampshade on its head.


Living Room, after:

Ooooohhhhh, look at the comfy seating area!


Check out the wall color, the shelves and of course our gigantic tv!
