blast from the past – living room

I’m still knee deep in getting the house ready to be put on the market.  Mike has been in and out of town during this process which has greatly intensified the suck factor.  And, I’ve got Izzy’s 4th birthday party happening this weekend (I’ve completely dropped the ball on this).  I’ve got some stuff to show you guys around the house, but with all the work/cleaning out I’ve not had time to take photos of anything.  Soon though, I’ll get it done soon.
Anywho, I can across a photo of our living room from the previous owners and thought you’d be interested in seeing it.
Before, before.
And now.

I found a really good before of the kitchen too I’ll show you guys later.  I can’t believe I almost forgot how bad it was.  Crazy oakness going down in there.
Oh, and while I’ve got you.  Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
Now go eat some chocolate!

    Wow! I love coming across old "before" pics, too! It's been a long road, hasn't it? 😉

    That's nuts. All the pictures I have when I first bought the house are on film. Yeah, the pre-digital days. Damn I'm old.
    Happy Valentine's day!
