We finally finished the remodeling of our living/dining room!
We've lived in our house 20+ years and in all that time, we never really used our living room. We lived in the family room and the living room was basically just a piano and organ room.
Our dining room is off the living room and too small for our big family, so we turned the dining room into an office and moved the dining room table to the living room.
Now that we occasionally use that room, the hideous wallpaper that I ignored all these years, had to go.
We bought barn tin a couple of years ago to hang and it's been sitting in storage ever since.
When we had our big 12+ inches of snow a month ago, Greg ran up to storage the day before and brought the tin home. He loves to do "projects" in the winter when we're snowed in. (If he doesn't have something to do to keep him busy, he drives me and the dog nuts!)
Speaking of the dog, he's always got to be right in the middle of everything.
Austin (on the right) came by while Greg was working on the room to shovel our driveway. Greg told him to forget the driveway and clear a spot to the hot tub so he could get to it later.
Okay, want to see the room?
Ignore the wallpaper on the stairs, that's going away next, but while Greg was hanging tin, I was painting and staining the stairs. My craft room is up there, hence the sunflowers ;)
We stopped the tin on the landing and eventually will paint that wall white.
The country window you see is Here.
Greg had old farm doors that he brought home after replacing them on a job and we hung those on both walls going into the room. The stained glass was from an old church that wanted them replaced with windows.
This is looking into the room from the entryway. The office is straight back.
Sorry that's so blurry, it was the only picture I took of that shot.
You can kind of see the floor in this picture, it's Barn Wood Pergo.
Looking in the room from the office.
Guess what I want next for that room? I really need and want a huge country table with benches.
I've started the search for one.
I can't tell you how happy I am with this room now and so thankful for that snowstorm that got Greg moving on it!
Yes, it is!
Have an awesome Friday!
Here are the parties I join every week.
