When our family moved to our new house almost 4 years ago, we had to completely rehab the whole house. The house was never updated and was neglected for many years. It was a huge undertaking! Our family and friends thought we were crazy but we never said we weren't. We couldn't tackle this project all at once such as going in and completely redoing it top to bottom before we moved in. So, we tried to renovate as much as we could before we moved and figured the rest will be projects we'll take on along the way. Well 4 years later, very little has changed! I'll start by showing you my livingroom before and now.
This is the picture of my livingroom while the floors were being sanded and stained. I chose a very dark almost black stain for the floors. During the reno my husband discovered that there was a two feet of space in between the ceiling. We decided to make a large tray ceiling and put rope lighting all around the inside of the tray.
It was starting to take shape, but still lacks character and style.
I grabbed these two gorgeous leather chairs my friend was ditching. I think they're a beautiful addition to the room.
Here's how my livingroom looks now… It is looking much better, but yet a bit too brown.
I still want to change or add to the curtains, install a corner fireplace, maybe change the color of the ottoman and attempt to make slipcovers for the sofas.
What do you think? Do you have any ideas on changes I could make in this room? I would love to hear some suggestions.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
