Before & After: Nashville Family & Living Rooms

Happy Friday to my friends!  Today I wanted to share our updated living room and family rooms.  One of my favorite parts of our Nashville House were these two front rooms connected by french doors.  It was perfect for entertaining, and I loved the challenge of decorating two connected, but defined spaces.  There was still so much that I was hoping to get done, but I think we brought the space a long way.  My favorite decision was probably the "orange fiz" paint for the family room.  Everyone thought I was a nut when I declared I was painting the family room orange.  1.  Who does not love a nut?  2. I really loved how it turned out.  Keep reading to find out, what we did, what we paid someone to do, and what we still wanted to do.  Do you dig it....J 

What we did.
-Painted the family room "orange fiz."
-Hung new light fixtures.
-Pulled up the tile below the cast iron stove.  The tile had been put directly on the hard wood with cement, wire mess, and nails.  Took us about 5 hours to get 3 by 4 feet of tile up.  One of my favorite memories from our marriage.  
-Hung new curtain rods and curtains.
What we paid someone to do.
-We asked our movers to take the cast iron stove with them.
What we wanted to do.
-We wanted to get builtins done for the entire wall with Stuart's TV.  I know, I know. That TV is too big for the room, but it was all he wanted.  
-Reupholster the camel back sofa and the wing back chairs.
