The room is finished....What do you think...

You will remember I have been telling you about doing our room up. e have re done it all and changed the colour on walls and doors. The unit that is built in were the TV is was a very dark wood and varnished. The wall unit was a dark wood and very large. We painted the unit a light colour the same as the doors and the walls a pale oatmeal colour. The wall unit was given to the charity shop. We changed the carpet again to a paler colour. All these things lifted the room and made it seem much lighter. The last piece of the puzzle was thee suite which was ordered at the beginning of January. It is a Lazboy and it was delivered today. It took 15 weeks because it came from USA where it was made. The last piece of the puzzle completed the transformation and I love it....

                

                                            The new units are much smaller and lighter..
                                      The unit with the TV on is now lighter and I believe prettier and the carpet again adding to the lighter effect..
                                          Barrie trying the recliner out..

         Do you agree it looks better. Hope you like the look.
Take care everyone.

Love the colors. Changing out the dark wood does really lighten things up. Imagine you'll both be VERY comfortable in the LazBoys!
Enjoy!!

It looks WAY brighter and prettier! My human is hoping to do our attic apartment sometime soon - right now it is very dark and dingy.

Brian said...

Vey nice, Carol. Love the light look, makes things very cheery and bright. It's what Mom and Dad love about our big family room at the back of the house with all the windows. Those recliners look quite inviting:)

Wonderful job, Carol! The lighter colours make the room look so spacious and inviting! We'll be right over to try out the new furniture.
Heaven on earth for weary bones.
Certainly worth the wait.

Caren Gittleman said...

looks fabulous!! Enjoy that comfy chair!

Flynn said...

It looks lovely and the suite looks very comfy. I wonder if Barrie will be like my dad. Within 5 minutes of being in the recliner he is snoring. Mum is not much better but I lay on her and won't let her snore.

Jans Funny Farm said...

Well, the best part of the room decor is Barrie lounging comfortably in the chair. That says a lot about the room. :)

There are times to change things...

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

I love it. Especially the couch and recliner. We have a Lazboy couch and Chair-n-half (both recline) and I have never regretted the purchase they are so comfortable and hold up very well.

Madi and Mom said...

I love your new look Carol and Barrie. You will very much enjoy your Lazy Boy pieces. We have a Lazy Boy love seat that is very close to the color of yours.
Hugs Cecilia
