The Living Room

The living room is one of my favorite rooms of the house.  Not only does it have one of my preferred windows, it's also undergone a major transformation.
I gave a peak of it during our before and after reveal but here are a few more photos to give you an idea just how much work it was...
This is what awaited us when we toured the home: cheap faux wood paneling, a dark, dusty and wavy wood floor, a cracked ceiling and a gap where an obsolete window to the front porch still hung.
Not impressive.

It was a lot like the rest of the house--the potential was there but it was going to take a lot of work.  So that's what we did--got to work.

Putting the heating ducts in and hiding them behind some recessed lighting...
... then drywalling the recessed lighting/heat ducts.
Pulling out the old windows....
...and putting in the new ($25!) window.
Prepared to tear up the wood floor...
...and then finally removing the wood floor and trim.
Then it was just a matter of painting, laying carpet, installing a new ceiling fan, putting up crown molding...
...and the finishing trim.
Jack built that handsome trim himself!
Now the living room can be checked off our list!  What a much-appreciated, impressive improvement.
All done.  Thank goodness.
