If you've never seen our Before Pictures... you'll enjoy these.
They're a good reminder of just how far we've come
and how BLESSED we've been to find this home.
The room is 16 x 14 and is open to our dining room & kitchen.
The open concept is great, but it's made the space a little more difficult to work with.
One of the things we didn't like about the space was that the front door opened directly into the room. We've always had a foyer and liked the privacy that they gave when someone came to the door.
To give us a little privacy,
Buzz mounted a bookcase against the wall and finished the back with bead board. We painted it the same color as our walls and added a little bit of trim molding to finish it off. Now we have a private entry on one side and a little reading nook on the other.
It's working perfectly for us.
A few changes we made in this room:
- Removed the original trim from the walls, baseboards, windows & door
- Applied an orange peel texture to the walls & painted
- Replaced the floor covering
- Replaced the ceiling fan
- Replaced baseboards & door trim
