LOTS of changes since then...new paint, crown molding, new hardwoods (there were none under this carpet), and also the beginnings of some furniture! This chocolate sectional was perfect for this space since the TV will sit on the opposite wall. The rug is from Ballard and is indoor/outdoor so will hold up well in this room that will get a lot of use!
It looks so much better already! There will soon be a pretty recliner to sit next to the couch as well as TV, drapery, and other touches!
