        We have recently bought a new home & I really need some help arranging & decorating. I like the rustic/country look that is warm but modern. I need to work with our existing furniture but am not opposed to painting any of it or slip-covers for the 2 chairs. I also need to work with the carpet that is in here as we can't change it right now & previous owners had just installed it so it is in very good condition. Here are some of my thoughts...I know it's all dark but I'm thinking I can lighten it up & give it some color with accessories...curtains, pillows, rugs, etc and maybe painting some of the wood furniture. The room is a very odd shape & it is open to the kitchen/bar & eat-in kitchen area.The pics start from the left side of the room & then go all the way around. The fireplace is brick & we are seriously thinking about lime washing it. My husband has already taken the mantel down to start the lime wash...as you will see it is on the floor in front of the fireplace. We are also thinking to have the mantel planed down so it's not as thick (the top is warped anyway) & staining it darker. We also are planning on mounting the tv on the wall. Any ideas & suggestions will be really welcomed!!!
