Mobile Home-Living Room Remodel

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.

Our living room is the last room I've featured on my blog.  Maybe, it's because it's been the hardest room to work with and I haven't been able to get it just exactly right, or perhaps I just over think things... I'm not sure.  At any rate, I've decided to go ahead and invite you in.   


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

I could give you a list of things we still want to change
 in this space, but I'll restrain myself.. 
after all, is any room really ever finished.
