Living Room Painted

So for a pretty long time now, we've been working on painting our living room. We're still not done, unfortunately. But you can't tell-at least not in these pictures, hahaha. Our walls were paneled when we moved in. We painted them white and then thought it was too much white, so we ripped the paneling down. We had to sand down all of the glue and mud A LOT. Then we painted Valspars Sandstone Beige onto the walls.

I love the color now! We ripped out our trim to replace it and like I said, we still need to do one last coat. The back door will be replaced with a clean, white one and the mantle still needs to be stripped of the paint and re-stained a deep brown. We also removed beams from our ceiling that were there for decoration and we will be putting beadboard up to cover up the outdated popcorn ceiling. And then we will add photos and art to our walls to make it more home-y. I'll show you the pictures of the ceiling once the beadboard is up so you can see the before & after.
