I love this lamp which also came from Homesense

This is what the room looked like at Christmas

My Dad gave me this old clock years ago.

My computer would not let me send the pictures the way I usully do so I had to send them through blog this in two batches.
We do have a carpenter coming in to build some bookcases for the other side of the room and a few other changes as well that I will share when they are done.
So, this is what we have done so far and I am happy with the new look so far.
Today, I am joining Cindy again at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday. Thank you Cindy for hosting.

Enjoy your weekend,
Carolyn

I REALLY like your new looking fireplace. I need to try that with the massive fireplace that dominates my living room. It's 7 feet across and goes from the floor to the ceiling! Does it take a lot of paint to cover the brick?

Carolyn said...

Hi Marilyn,
No,it didn't take a lot of paint but I think the trick is to use a good primer.
Thanks for visiting,
Carolyn

Oh Carolyn, huge difference! The white fireplace brightens everything up. And I love the painting of the mother and baby bassinet! Lovely! Good job! Sincerely, Susan

That looks lovely.
Am intrigued how close the fireplace is to that window. xx
