With the New Year comes many new things. Most of us are apt to start to clean out closets, cabinets, toys (maybe husbands…LOL) to start fresh for the new year. This weeks theme is a ‘room makeover or remodel.” I am going to show you two rooms.
The first being the living room remodel. Note that this was done over the course of time. We have a two story home with the living room being on the top floor in the front of the house. It gets tons of light. When we first moved in I had no idea what I wanted. So we just painted the walls white and lived with that for many years. The furniture was my hubby’s from his old apartment (can’t you tell, it is black leather…LOL).
Here is the before shot looking from down the hallway….
Here is the after looking from the same angle…….
I think the biggest difference is just from the paint. The walls are a warm green and not that stark white. We obviously got new plush furniture including a chaise. I always wanted one in my bedroom, but my room is too small so I settled for one in the living room. We do not have a tv in this room. It is our ‘entertaining’ room and we like it like that…no kids .
This angle is from the dining room. The two rooms open up to eachother. When we remodeled one, we had to do the other. Doesn’t it look so bare?? How did I live like this?
We painted two of the walls a mocha color for a little bit of contrast. Of course we got some window treatments, light fixtures and accessories. It is much cozier now. I am sure it will be like this for many more years….LOL.
Next…on to the kitchen. I had posted pics of this room for a previous HTT post. So, I am not going to go into all the hoopla. You can tell from the pictures what we did. And know that my hubby did all of the work himself!! He is so anal with certain things that sometimes it drives me nuts. But in the end, he does beautiful work and I appreciate it greatly. I forgot to take pictures of the ‘before’ so I only have one.
Have a great Tuesday everyone....
