Home Redecorating, Ballard Style.

For our wedding/my birthday present Mom, Dad, Miles and Meg came to visit us for a few days last week. The plan was a total redo of the inside of our house and the Ballard’s did not fail. Dad single handedly painted four rooms and one hallway on his own in 3 1/2 days. Mom got measurements ahead of time and made curtains for four rooms in one week. Tyler, Dad and Miles installed a new chandelier in the kitchen, a recessed light above the sink and Miles and I installed a dimmer switch for the dining room chandelier. We got new switch plate covers as well.

The room I am sharing today is the living room. The only thing we still need in this room is a lamp or two. The lighting we have is way to harsh and we need softer light. so we don’t have to sit in the dark watching tv like we are now. We painted the walls a beautiful green color, added curtains made by Mom with fabric from Joann’s. We finally hung our pictures. I love our Family Tree wall art from Bed Bath and Beyond. It was a great wedding gift! The switch plate covers are such a small addition but do so much for the room! We also didn’t bring the rug back in and that really helped open up a small room and the hardwood floors look pretty! So here are the before and after pictures, forgive the mess in the before picture but I guess that makes the after picture that much better!
