After almost two months of living in Sumter, I've finally finished one room in my house! We moved from a tiny apartment in Charleston to a house that feels gigantic so furniture placement has been a bit tricky, not to mention finding ways to cover the walls without spending a fortune. The first thing I loved about the new house was the fireplace so I have really put all of my energy into finishing this space first. There are still a few things I might change but for the most part it's done. What do you think?
