Our Home Update!

I just wanted to share some photos of the little bit of progress we are making with our home. Just to refresh your memory, we recently moved back into our house after living abroad for a year. We have done mostly painting but we have also bought some new furnishings and accents. Below is a shot of my home office in Ben Moore's Hale Navy. Other photos show some furniture for our living room and a gallery wall I am working on going up the stairs. Finally, a sneak peek of our bedroom which will be last room to be finished up!

We started with this room and painted it BM Hale Navy and replaced the carpet with hardwood floors.

This photos shows one wall in the office where my cork memo board hangs. I just bought a piece of cork board, spray adhesive glue and a wonderful black weaved fabric. I am really happy with how it came considering I don't feel like I am a professional DIYer....

I shared this photo already but we added this great LEE Industries chair and ottoman and one more chair will be ordered shortly to complete the room.

This is the staircase that leads to our office loft. I found this great Hudson Valley's Garden City Aged Brass Wall Sconce online and I am now slowly putting together a gallery wall going up the stairs.

And finally a sneak peek of our restful and calm bedroom. The lamp I snatched for a mere $10 at a flea market in the Hudson Valley. It was bright orange so a little bit of white paint, gold spray paint and a shade I already had and it all came together! I have another matching lamp but I am not sure where I will put that one yet!
