95% done!

Uncategorized April 7, 2009

We are almost done in the family room! Here is the ever frightful before (this is not even the worst, this picture does not show the horrific wallpaper we spent days removing):

Here I am finishing the last of the millwork this morning (Sean does the floors and I do the trim and millwork)

Almost done, just the lighting and electric outlets are left to do~

Of course we still have a lot of decorating to do, but that is the fun part!

    Love what you’ve done so far. The addition to the walls and the dark wood floor is fabulous. Look forward to the decorating part.

    Thanks so much everyone!!! The tile around the fireplace is carrera marble mosiac and on the bottom it is carrera marble subway tiles and the drapes are from Ikea (I believe they are only $20 per panel, so only $80 to do both windows!!!).We are just excited to have a new hangout and finally get to use this room.

    The transformation is awesome! It doesn’t even look like the same room and actually looks bigger now with the dark floors and white furntiure! I absolutely love it!Decorating is the best part now that the hard work is done! You always do such an amazing job with your projects! :)What a relief to have it done… almost! :)

    Gorgeous. I adore the dark floors with all the white furniture! And, the billowy white drapes make the room so soft and warm!
