Our progress so far *pic heavy*

So most of you have seen the rooms as we've been making progress in our remodel. Well....it's been a little over 4 months since we've moved in now and we aren't done, but, we're getting there.

This is our kitchen and living room...so far.

We had to re-do everything! We've finally hung curtains, window coverings, some wall decor, gotten down a rug or two and moved in some furniture.

The couches in our living room were given to us by a couple when they were moving. They are really nice Crate & Barrel couches (there's no way we could have afforded these!) and they are WHITE! These are the couches that I am still doing some minor repairs on and I posted about dying the slipcovers. My dye should be here soon, but, before I dye them I'd like your opinions on what color you think I should dye them. I'm trying to keep in mind that my decor/colors could change way down the road so I'd like to color of the couch to be versitile to go with other styles. I have ordered a dark brown dye, but, what do you think?

This is BEFORE.......

That is my sis-in-law on the couch with my youngest munchkin.

And AFTER.............So far.....

Don't mind the lumps in the rug....we just layed it down so it's still lumpy from being rolled up.

LOL that's what I said! The couple that gave them to us didn't have any kids...I think that probably explains it. ;o)

Love what you have done! As for the couches, I would use the dark brown dye.  I recently purchased dark brown furniture after having light cream (what was I thinking!?!) couches.  So much easier. My kids are 7 & 10 now and when they were younger, I had to constantly clean the couches, I wish I had the dark fabric 5 years ago..jmo
