I figured I’d start with the after, cause no one likes to REALLY see those “before” pics at the top, do they?
Ok, ok…. here is the before:
This is the family room the way it looked before. The previous owners used it as a study, a library, a TV room, and a litter box (I’m not kidding).
See that little cut-out next to the wastebasket? That is a kitty door.
I had BIG plans for this space! I had long coveted those horizontal plank wood walls
everyone has been doing, so I did my research and thanks to Shelley at House of Smiths
and Sausha at Sweet Pickins, I knew what to do. I enlisted the help of my BFF, and armed
with some borrowed tools and a long weekend, we got-her-done!
Here are the progress pics:
Next I painted the entire room white!
(I just LOVE an all white room)
And added blue – just to the ceiling.
Don’t you love it?
