Busy, busy painting bee

Yes, it's been months since I have posted anything new. I have good reason, I promise! It's been so hectic because I have been moving out of state and painting, painting, painting. I don't think I have ever painted so much in my life.
Our new home is close to 100 years old, so the work is there and so is the vision. Let me share with you what's been keeping me occupied for these past months. Keep in mind these are befores.

 Now this is looking into the living room from the dining room. As you can see, it's so dark and feels so closed in. The carpet had to be ripped out because there were hardwood floors hiding underneath it, making me question, "how could you?".

The bookcases in the living room are okay, I wasn't crazy about the doors on them, so I removed them and decided to leave it open.

The living room and dining room have wonderful beams on the ceiling. Now I know that many of you wood fans are going to be upset with me, but this is all the stuff I have been busy painting. Yes, I said it, I painted all the moldings, trims, and beams a lovely crisp cotton white.
I was very hesitant to touch the beams because the wood was so pretty, but I really had the plan of opening up the rooms in the home and making them bright and inviting. I can't wait to share with you some after photos. Now I'm off to run after my busy 19 month old who is keeping me super busy too. Love you all!
Big Hugs, Melissa
