Mallory’s Classic Colonial: Living Room Reveal

This little living room has quickly become one of my favorite spaces to lounge in. I can see a full view of most of the house and I love the sunshine pouring in from the new window.

Quick backstory: We bought the house in March 2019 and on day one, removed the wall separating the kitchen and dining room which resulted in removing the double ovens in that wall. We turned the remaining kitchen into a more updated, livable space for our family until we had the wild idea to relocate the kitchen altogether to another area of the home.

This worked fine for a few months until we moved the kitchen but then it left us with two kitchens so we had to remove the old one, for obvious reasons. haha!

We fixed the plumbing and electrical but were left with a window that was too small for the space since it no longer had a sink beneath it. My plans of turning that window into doors went out the window (pun intended) when we opened the wall to find that extensive plumbing work would have to be done to make space for the doors. Not something I wanted to take on right now. We replaced the window (all by ourselves!) to make a larger picture window it its place. Next, we replaced the floors (You can read all about my flooring here), repaired drywall and added custom trimwork to the room.

Can you believe the photo of the zebra is our tv? The Frame TV is truly remarkable! You can read our review of The Frame TV here.

Most of the gold frames are vintage or from Michaels. All of the prints (with the exception of the Mesa Temple drawing) are from BFF PRINT SHOP.

    I LOVE it! But I do have to ask (I have two 4 year olds) How do you keep the furniture white with little ones? I’d love to have lighter furniture but fear it will be ruined by kids (and maybe even husband lol)

    This is absolutely fantastic. Do you have listed somewhere on your blog the sizes of the chair rail and molding that you used to create that look? And the window trim?
    It’s exactly what I want to do to our living room.
    Thanks for sharing your beautiful work!
