Family Room Renovations

Last summer when we first moved into our house I showed you these pictures of our family room:

One view of the family room.

And another view of the same room.

We (I) got tired of the dark paneling so we (I) decided that Rich should redo the room.

First Rich took all of the old paneling down:

After all of the old paneling was down Rich and my dad replaced all of our electric type stuff and added some more outlets.

Then Rich and my dad put a bunch of insulation in since it was a bit chilly in our family room during this winter.

Then they wrapped the walls in plastic.  I’m not sure exactly why they did that but I’m sure it was an important step.

Then the new drywall went up.

Rich painted- the color is kind of a light tan.  I think it’s called cappuccino something or other.  It turned out looking lighter than we thought it was going to, but we like it anyways.

And now for the new, updated family room….

There’s an end table in the corner between the couch and the love seat and I need to find a lamp to put on there.

Another view.

Another view… we (I) plan to replace this entertainment center with something much smaller.

And one last view.


Livin' With Me!

    Melanie – it looks wonderful! I am so envious . . . I just started splotching different colors of pain on the family room walls to find one I like . . . to change it just enough to hold me over until I win the lottery and can remodel the nasty ugly place. Enjoy your new room – it’s so warm and inviting!
