When we were looking at our house, we knew that the living room probably needed the most work. We also knew that it was where we’d be spending a lot of our time and that the work would be worth it! Keep reading for our living room before & after reveal!
Here are some before pictures! Considering we had a modern and tranquil color theme planned for our house, this room had a lot of changes to go through!
First the beams came off the ceiling!
Then we had the wood burning stove pulled out & all the shelving taken out.
I whitewashed the fireplace! One of my favorite DIY projects.
Cabinets were added for storage. These are perfect for storing electronics, movies and games!
We added some shelving back in!
Painted the room blue & added white crown molding (it was brown before) and added some pretty curtains! Tip: Lowe’s has the BEST curtains. Random, I know.
Looking so much better already! We taped the TV off to measure for the mantle.
We had recessed lighting added to the ceiling & it made such a difference!
Furniture was put in and time for the decorating to begin!
I added a couple pieces every few days as we had time to go look.
We are so proud of this room! It is definitely where we spend the majority of our time and we love how it turned out. We will be adding gas logs to the fireplace this fall but other than that this room is complete!
