some pictures of the new sectional , so here they are.
I will be decorating for spring in the next few days.
Delivery was set for between 4-7 and they arrived at 3.
So I blame them for my not having "before" pictures.
The settee was placed under the window with the end tables and lamps. The sofa was in front of the dining table similar to how it is now.
The problem was that the window is situated so that when the settee was centered under the window, the back of the sofa extended too much into the walkway between the living room and dining room.
The sectional allowed me to eliminate the left end table and not have to center (the lamps) under the window. The lamp you see on the left of the window is a floor lamp. It is now balanced.
The next step is to paint the coffee and end tables. The coffee table has a honey pine top as does the dining table. I will either paint them (the tops) or stain them a dark walnut to match the tv wall unit.
So now I have to decide whether to paint the end tables solid black or cream. Then what to paint the coffee table... and whether to stain the top or paint.
The Mr. will be home from ND and off for the whole week!!! We will be busy doing projects, and having fun before he returns to ND for a few more weeks.
