Living room - painted and new carpet, new curtains. You can see that the previous owners' style was a little darker and more formal than mine is. I would still love to switch out the front of the fireplace (the last brass hold-out!) if such a thing is possible.
Formal dining room. This room probably was the biggest change. We stripped the wallpaper, painted, changed out the light fixture, new carpet, etc. We FINALLY got this room put together last night by hanging the curtains and the pictures. I have a larger black server/buffet for that back wall on my wish list :)
As anticipated, we don't actually do much eating in this room. Our computer is in the corner that you can't see, so we are in here quite a bit. Basically, there are things you do at a dining room table that involve eating and things you do at a dining room table that do not involve eating and this room is for the latter (playing games, scrapbooking, wrapping presents, etc.) It's nice to have another table, however, when we have larger groups of people over.
