Living Room Before & After!

We have made some great headway in the house in the last few months! **By the way, how cool is that Picstitch above of the before & after?!** In fact, I am pretty excited to say the living room is complete, at least for a while ;). While some parts have been mostly done for quite some time, we finally got around to painting the gosh awful yellow neutral walls to a much more light and airy gray, Benjamin Moore Gray Owl, with the trim being painted Benjamin Moore Simply White. 

It looks soo much better in my opinion! I also added a few more things like the yellow trellis bench from Target. This room has come a long way since we moved in. Don't believe me?! Scroll down to the photos below from when we first moved in! 

Without further ado, here are the before and afters...
