What a few small interior changes can do...

This weekend we took the ugly brass fireplace doors off of our fireplace. Why we hadn't done it earlier, don't ask me. It made such a difference. Lindsay was so obsessed with the difference that she inspired me to go look at the old real estate pictures -- the ones off the real estate site when we were looking to buy our house.

WOW. What a difference moving some granny furniture out, painting the walls, and taking off some ugly brass fireplace doors, can make in the feel of a room!

Aahh, much better. This is why people should look past the interiors of a home when buying. :)

Lindsay -- go for the tacky hacienda!

The fireplace looks better. No longer competing with the brass seagull mural...that thing really pulls the room together.

The fireplace is 100% better... isn't that brass stuff just so tired? And I absolutely LOVE the wall color.
