New Furniture, Delivered: Before and After

The new furniture has arrived. Our window of delivery was 10 am – 3 pm and the truck showed up just before 11 am, beating the guesses of most of the folks online who seemed to think the truck would show up at 2:59 pm. The delivery guys were quick and efficient and had everything setup and cleaned out within a few minutes.

This furniture officially completes the conversion of what was our office into our living room. (The office was moved into a room upstairs.)

Here is the before shot:

And here’s what it looks like after:

This room conversion was the first of two home improvement projects we’re working on. Next weekend, we visit the showroom of a contractor we selected for a kitchen remodel. We are putting in new cabinets, countertops, backsplash, floors, sink, and pantry. I don’t think the work will begin until sometime in May on this one, but the ball is already rolling.
