  1. Oh my goodness! That is some transformation! I have to say the after is fabulous! Painting the FP made such a difference! Love the window and shutters over the buffet! Everything looks wonderful, you did a great job and isn't it fun when cab you use a lot of the things you have and just tweak them and add some paint!

  2. I love the new look. It is interesting that you got the white look without painting all your wood. I just love the shutters and the old window.

  34. I love this! I'm in the planning stages of a living room update, and I just got so many wonderful ideas. Did you make the slip covers or buy them? I love the look, and I especially LOVE the side board and the wall above it. I'm putting that in my idea file.

  60. Beautiful and so inspiring. I have almost finished painting my horrible kitchen cabinets white, and they look so much better already. Is the microwave safe over a cooker? I was thinking about the same thing.. I have a gas cooker and Im in UK! Also what paint did you use on the fireplace..we have a very similar fireplace and I want to twist my hubbys arm so we can do the same as it looks amazing. Did it take many coats as I imagine the bricks will soak so much paint up?? Good job and I love your home! Greetings from across the pond! Deb

  68. Wow what a difference!! Nice job. Did you do the slipcovers yourself? They look great! I've been doing slipcovers for about 8 years now and I always love white slipcovers.
