We Finally Did It!

I feel like we have been talking about taking the wall out between our living room and dining room since we moved in here 4 years ago.  Well we finally did it and here's the proof...

Well I almost freaked out because the guys got here to do the work while I was still in bed and I was afraid I wouldn't get a before picture!  They had already taken the moulding down but this is good enough.

9:00 am.
 Right side almost gone.
Right and left almost gone.
12:00 pm
It took me forever to clean all the dust off of everything and put my life back together.  
Twelve hours later.  It was a loooong day.
12:00 am.
Somebody got new dining room chairs.  Woop woop! My hubby put them together for me at 1am. He's amazing. There is another guy coming tomorrow to sheet rock the beam on the ceiling and the spaces where the wall was.  I have so much decorating to do.  New chandelier is in the mail. 
 This is the view from the front door.  The room looks sooo much bigger! 
We decided to take all of the chair rail down and the stripes are going and the blue that I just did.
View from kitchen in to living room.
All of the things that were hanging on the walls.  I don't know what to do with it all!

So now we are finally talking paint colors because that will be our next step this weekend.  We have yet to paint the mantel like I said we were going to do because we want to make sure it will look good with whichever color we choose.

It's 2:28 am. I am exhausted and my feet are throbbing so I'm headed to bed.   Thanks for checking in!
