Makeovers: Navy & White Living Room Reveal

By it all started with paint on Sep 17, 2013


I had a tough decision to make last night …

words …

or pictures?

And would it be okay to post the pictures without the words?

The whole photographing and editing pictures of my navy and white living room remodel took much longer than I antcipated …

Which led to an internal debate of whether I should just post the pictures with a “here it finally is …”

Or wait and compose words to go with the pictures …

You know, like telling you about how the wall color is Sherwin Williams Naval …


And how the amazing ceiling fan came from Lamps Plus …

Along with the amazing mirror; from Lamps Plus too …


I could also tell you how the rug started it all …

Or how I’m in love with my table that I painted with navy and white stripes …


Or the fabrics …
