Not sure how she accomplished this but Maggie got herself stuck in the bottom of the rocking chair. Will could not save her. Donnie and I got her out. Luckily we didn't have to cut the chair!

The Living Room.

When we moved into the house, things were pretty rough.  The living room had the original carpet still in it.  The carpet had not been installed properly and then had been lived on for 30 years.  It was dirty and rippled and needed to go.  The main wall was striped in bold colors that weren't our style.  There was no lighting.  There was an old fireplace that didn't generate any heat and had such a sketchy chimney that using it was probably more dangerous that we thought.  After 5 years we have finally made most of the upgrades we've wanted to. 

We started by painting over the stripes.  Then, a few years later, we ripped out the old fireplace and had a wood burning stove installed.  This last winter we had lights installed on the wall that used to be striped.  A month or so ago we took the carpet out.  A few days ago we repainted the entire room and last night Donnie and I installed the flooring.  We still want to put down some thick white base boards but we are so happy with how everything turned out!

Here are pictures of what it looked like when we moved in....

Here is what it looked like after we took the carpet out and before we repainted the walls.
