Well I just couldn't wait to start on our living room boxes so Sunday afternoon and evening I painted part of our living room (our house is a huge open area with living room, dining room and kitchen all together). I stopped painted at the end of the living room window right next to the piano so I can finish next weekend and no one will notice (much).
See how under my windows there just isn't enough room for a box. The entire measurement is only around 8-9 inches. I hope it doesn't look strange with no boxes under the windows but the windows are just so HUGE!
Hubby and I measured 36 inches from the floor up the wall and marked with a pencil. Then I painted the bottom trim and bottom part of the wall white.
The beginning of change. Already I can tell it will make a difference.
I'll post the rest of our living room transformation as we finish up!
