New Year Renovation Updates

Snow is still coming down! I L.O.V.E it! Harsh winters are the best winters - who wants a pansy winter any way???
Perfect opportunity to catch you up on our recent home renovations. Due to the holiday season, we haven't exactly "transformed the house"- however, we did get the backsplash in the kitchen complete.
TA DA!!!
I also figured out what I wanted do with the "blank" kitchen wall. I went with a lighter shade of the green that we had done the chevron design with in the hall.

I also picked up this FABulous wreath during after Christmas sales and added a little winter fun to it.
 AND we completed the dinning room with a fresh yellow color on top and white on the bottom - oh and a WHITE ceiling!

 Oh, we added this adorable little cart that we found over break to the family - now we just need a hutch. Craigslist here I COME!
Speaking of CRAIGSLIST! While looking for more seating for our "impossible to have company" family room, we discovered (within less then 10 minutes I might add) an AMAZING white leather couch!!! So, KC and I bundled up, borrowed a truck, and drove 10 minutes on icy roads to pick this baby up!
Isn't she GORGEOUS!!?!??!!

Still not in love with this color ... too dark and doesn't go well with the brown beams ... 

We are so excited - the best part - She seats a minimum of 6 and adds room to allow fr our other chair, before residing lonely in the living room, to fit giving us a minimum of EIGHT in our family room! So COME ON OVER EVERYONE! We now have a SEAT for you :0)
We still haven't officially done anything to the living room but moving the extra family room furniture in there at least makes it feel like a real room!
