Living Room Reveal

 What do you think?  I still have to add a few touches but it's mostly done.  New hardwood floors to match what we put in the rest of this main floor last year, new gray paint, and white trim, wider baseboards,  and a salvaged window turned mirror.
 I changed out a few pillows on the couch otherwise, the furniture is the same.  We decided not to put in armoire back in because the new office has two bookcases on that same wall and the rooms would seem to heavy on that side.  There is no place else to put it in my house so I'm not sure what to do with it.  It is a beautiful antique but not in the best shape.
 I found these windows in at Fred's salvage in SLC.  They were very dirty and look as though they are already mirrored in this picture.  Nope, it's just dirt.  I bought them to put over my TV in the new addition but they are heavy so I had my husband photoshop them in a picture of the room so I could see what they would look like.    It looked like a smiley face with the windows being the eyes, the tv the nose, and the entertainment center the mouth.  It saved us a lot of work and I like them in the living room and office.
I used Krylon mirror paint and a spray bottle of water to create the look of an antique mirror. 
 Old living room decor/colors with armoire.
Which version do you like best?

Very cool Kim! Those old windows are wonderful. You're a better woman than me -- I have an old two-piece cupboard in my family room and it doesn't look good, but I just can't get rid of it, so it stays. I admire your ability to get rid of stuff!
