      MACENNA 😍😍 it’s beautiful!! I definitely vote two chairs for the living room! It adds variety to the space and makes it feel more open to the beautiful French doors! 😍😍 I do have a suggestion! I really think instead of painting the brick I definitely think you should just over grout it. Use an off white colour to neutralize the red but keep the amazing brick texture since the whole wall is painted!

    When you said “I was so nervous because I’ve never done it before” referring to the lime wash I was thinking “girl, look around you. You pretty much built your own house by yourself without ever having done it before, paint on a small patch of wall isn’t gonna take you down” 😂
    Great job as always MaCenna!

    MaCenna, you have made the living room so beautiful! I think 2 chairs across from the sofa (like you have now) looks great! I can tell you like symmetry but I think adding another sofa will make it too matchy-matchy. Adding the 2 chairs still gives the room balance and makes it more interesting. I am so very impressed with all you’ve taught yourself and the love and hard work you’ve put into your home! You are a joy to watch!

  • Sasha
    Sasha 2 months ago +498

    I kind of love the one couch, two chairs look for the living room! There's already so much symmetry and I feel like some asymmetry really balances it out. It also makes a ton sense to have armchairs like it is now since it doesn't block access to that door.

    • XO, MaCenna
      XO, MaCenna  2 months ago +8

      The chairs work because the arms aren’t solid, you want airy looking wood arms and no skirting.

    • Alexandra
      Alexandra 2 months ago +3

      @BarefootContessamessa Agree, would also cover too much of that beautiful lime wash.

    • Alexandra
      Alexandra 2 months ago +4

      Agree with keeping 2 chairs. Buying another couch or even a love-seat will drastically cut your styling/seating options; I speak from my own experience!
      Also chairs will keep that current airy, spacious vibe, another couch would "cramp" the room and make the design appear stuffy.
      Finally, some of your guests may prefer a chair.

  • Tiara Aguilar
    Tiara Aguilar 2 months ago +4

    Absolutely love how it turned out! Would a diy removable rolling bookshelf ladder be something you would incorporate into your home? The shelves just reminded me of a like cozy Victorian library nook sort of vibe and just thought it would be a fitting touch🤎

  • Kimberly Lamitie

    Really loving the limewash between the gorgeous colored shelves! The trim is intricately beautiful, it ties up the room well! Can’t wait for the moment you furnish up the room 🤩🤩

  • Patty Payne
    Patty Payne Month ago

    Oh MaCenna, your living room is just lovely! Well done! I would love 2cozy overstuffed chair to complete the room because I love the look of the double door, especially the bottom and I wouldn’t like to block that view.
    Honestly can’t wait to see your choice!

  • Production Consigliere

    I watched this again and please keep the living room furniture as is! It's extremely important to think about Fire egress! The 2 chairs are placed and position PERFECTLY for fire safety and aesthetics.

  • ThePleasantCottage
    ThePleasantCottage Month ago

    Amazing work! I just love the color for the built in shelving. What if you continued that color around by painting your crown moulding the entire perimeter of the living room with that color? It's so beautiful! Now I'm looking around my house to see what I can paint with that color... hmm...❤😂

  • Tricia Moss
    Tricia Moss 2 months ago +26

    Okay, first I want to agree with every encouraging and positive comment. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this series. It is so inspiring. And I want to add one teensy weensy suggestion. My husband is a finish carpenter and we sat and watched the reveal together, hitting pause and discussing. Maybe paint the crown at the top of the cabinets to match the crown above the walls. That way the cabinets look straight at the top rather than strangely curved. You have Grey Mist crown above the fireplace so I actually think it would look more complete that way. It is a little bit choppy now. So sorry to be that person nitpicking while you bust your hump. My only defense is that I'm a former copyeditor. 😉😆You and Romeo are awesome. Can't wait to see the big finish.

    • Morag McDonald

      I came here to say the same thing. It’s the only thing that’s wrong to me. Otherwise it all looks great!

    • Lucinda Jackson
      Lucinda Jackson 2 months ago +4

      I agree! It’s the first thing I noticed, as well. I think it looks awkward to have that color break in the continuity of the crown molding.

  • Deanna Wirtz
    Deanna Wirtz 2 months ago +695

    The trim looks so much better than just floating shelves

    • Gloria Ballesteros

    Oh gosh MaCenna, it is so beautiful and I really love the look of the fireplace and the shelves and cabinets below with those beautiful doors. Thanks again for sharing and I am really excited for the Christmas Vlogs. Have fun and stay safe, sending love and hugs, bye!! 💞💜💜

  • Beth Shadoan
    Beth Shadoan Month ago

    You are so smart! I love everything you have done! For future projects requiring darkening detail work you might want to try a product from DIY paint called "Dark and Decrepit Dust" you just powder it on basically. Much easier but what you did looks fabulous!

  • Valerie Miles

    I’m so inspired following along on this ongoing transformation. You did that, girl! The one thing I would differently is paint the whole fireplace front and mantle surround the same color as the built in shelving. LOVE the understated drama that color brings to the space

    I wonder if any of the family members of the previous owner have watched these videos. I'm sure it would make their hearts happy to see the amount of love and detail you have poured into each and every room.

  • Diane Bateman
    Diane Bateman Month ago

    MaCenna, what a transformation, it is ABSOLUTELY gorgeous!!!!!!!
    It looks amazing, love the placement of the couch and chairs. I think you should stick to just 1 couch and a couple chairs, it may look to bulky with 2 couches. I like that you can see through the backs of the chairs, it has an openness about it.
    GREAT JOB, YOU'RE AMAZING!!!
    The house is looking so beautiful, you should be so proud of all your skills you have learned over the last year.

  • Come Fast To Get Into My Body

    I wish once in a while you'd make an hour-ish video. 30mins-ish feels so quick to go by when it comes from you. Well done on everything, MaCenna.
    Edited: Now that I've watched the video, it did feel a big rush to put so many things in such a short duration. I know you have a strict timeline in what you do and are a perfectionist (as I am myself). I love that about you. Your work ethic is epic! Please try to slow down and enjoy the process more. Nevertheless, the results are unquestionably amazing and will always be, every single time. We're all proud of you. You will never ever bore your audiences with your personality, skills, brilliant ideas and so on. It's the details that matter, right? Please don't take this the wrong way, and thank you so much for sharing with us. You're a complete joy to our days and nights.

      I don’t think it’s realistic to ask her to do hour long videos here plus her vlog in addition to the work she’s doing on the house. Filming and editing videos is very time-consuming and the longer the video, the longer it takes to do those things. If you follow her vlog in addition to this channel, it gives you what you’re looking for!

    • Amanda M
      Amanda M 2 months ago +1

      I'm sure there are hours and hours of footage shot and of course it takes time to edit them down. Doubling the length of the video could potentially double the length of the time it takes to edit (which is always the longest most tedious part!). But I'd happily watch DIY shots go on for longer! Even just painting the room! This could be a lower effort/quick way of lengthening the videos. MaCenna's videos are so relaxing and inspiring to watch! I 100% agree that we will never get bored watching!

    • Druz
      Druz 2 months ago +6

      @Johanna Sarén MaCenna's videos are well-made. And I think it takes quite some time just to edit one. She also jumps from one project to another (depends on what life throws at her) so the files has to be organised first and put in their own respective folders before she can even make a single video. Unless she has 1 specific camera for 1 specific project and everything is shot continuously. Or if she hires a cameraperson/editor to help her. Anyway, she's been doing a spectacular job as a one-person creator (sometimes with the help of Romeo, Mom, Dad). I honestly think she shouldn't edit out as much details because she had worked looong days and weeks or even months on one single project. She should give herself a lot more credit. As her viewer, I'm already so grateful she's sharing it with the world to see and learn from.

    The limewash looks absolutely incredible!! I wasn’t sure about adding it to the range hood in the kitchen but I am all for it now, it looks so bomb.

    first of all my jaw DROPPED when you showed the final reveal of your pretty progress!!! OH MY GODDDD its gorgeous! As for the furniture, I think having a little asymmetry with the couch and two chairs gives just enough contrast to show how perfectly symmetrical everything is, while still giving visual interest :)

    The living room is already stunning!!! I am a crafter and I love giving things an old world look. Waverly Antiqueing Wax is in every crafter’s stash. It can be watered down to soften the color. It is sold at Walmart and it does an amazing job of getting in all the crevices like on your mantle. Very easy to use. I also love their white wax!

I can see why it took a little while to load it, oh boy how much did you accomplish. I think you deserve to reward yourself and Romeo. Amazing living room, so cosy very “hygge”. Can’t wait for episode 4 with the Christmas decor. You have inspired me so much. I have began the design process of my flat makeover, lots to do before I start physically but love learning and gaining info and inspiration from you. You are amazing. ❤

    What is really amazing to me, is that when I was MaCenna’s age, I was so humble when renovators came to my home. They had amazing skills that really impressed me. And they did work in ways that were a mystery to me. And it was always men. And here is MaCenna, a self taught young woman knocking it out of the park every time…..

    Getting ready to do a bedroom in this treatment. You made look very doable.Did you have to use a special primer before the lime wash. Some of the tutorials I've watched said there is a special primer before the actual lime wash. If you did what was it that you used. If you didn't was it just the plaster as the base? Thank you so much, you are very inspirational and I appreciate all the knowledge you share along with the confidence you give.

    Can't bloody wait for vlogmas !!! To decide on the couch, take a picture of the living room without the chairs, flip your couch where you want to maybe put a second one, take another picture and photoshop them together !!
    But i gotta say, i love the airiness of the chairs compared to another, boxier couch

    Definitely couch and two chairs for the living room! A second couch would really narrow the walking space to the side door. The chairs allow for movement in lots of directions instead of creating a “hall” like a couch would.
    As always, such an incredible job!

    I am so excited to see the living room finally taking shape!! Everything looks amazing like always and I can’t get enough of the green shelving! I think with the room being so narrow and you having a door in the corner, a second couch would make it look very narrow and chairs make it less symmetrical!

    Omg MaCenna!!!!!! You’re knocking it out of the park!! Watching your vision for the space come to life is so inspiring and I’m having THE BEST TIME watching!! I definitely think you should do two matching couches with poofs or accent chairs at the end. I can’t wait for Vlogmas!! Lastly, let’s be friends in real life! ♥️

    2:47 and there’s what makes her so amazing! I would have never had the idea to thicken those shelves, and when she showed the difference, it became so obvious to me. Looks so much nicer!

      I agree and it would be such a cute idea for her Mom to do a tiny painting of Kinsley to,add to the bookshelf!

    I love the bookshelves! The second couch with the poof stools is what I envision for that space for sure!

    I love what you've done so far and it's so nice to see the before and after/present day comparisons! I like the layout of the couch and 2 chairs. I would just replace the chairs with something with more visual weight to maintain balance in the space. I love watching your progress, you are so inspiring!

    Gotta admit, got kinda teary watching this space come together at long last. I can only imagine how you must be feeling, accomplishing such a huge project to such a high standard. Congratulations on the excellent choices, too!

    I’ve been watching your channel since BEFORE the cottage days! You are my favorite Clip-Sharer (well tied with Drew 😉) it’s been soooo fun watching the whole process of the cottage that it’s making me a little sad it’s coming so close to an end! What are your plans after this?! I hope you do the little cottages in the back next 😊 I want to come stay in one!!!

    I love that trick to turn the floating shelves into more of a built-in look!

    Loving how this is going! Everything is so well made and its amazing how it’s your first time.
    For the layout of the living room, for TV viewing purposes I think couch in the middle back towards the kitchen, since twisting your neck a lot to watch tv would be a pain. And you can put chairs along the window and the opposite wall.
    For aesthetic purposes, I love the asymmetry since everything is so symmetrical. But I was also thinking 2 couches but it might crowd the space? If you have room I saw why not more seating then two smaller chairs facing the fireplace, back towards the kitchen.

    I love the color more and more every time. It has an olive tint that just looks so cool in the light! 🤗

    Ohhhh my goodness.....I LOVE what you have done! One of my favorite videos yet!!! WoW! I love more of the built in bookshelves plus that lime wash made it gorgeous. SO with the style of the older house. So rich looking! SOooo much character. And the little detail of the stain pen. Just perfect! You go girl! 😍❤️ Can't wait for each diy video!!!

    Your living room looks amazing. Love the built ins and love the color you chose for them. I think 2 sofas facing each other would look more cohesive and 2 pouffe's would not hinder the view but would enable more seating for guests xx

    Love how it’s coming together! It all looks lovely and so in keeping with the age of the house. The pedantic in me wishes you would put the two half bricks in the hearth to finish it off as it’s driving me crazy 🤪
