Living Room Reveal

Our living room is FINISHED!!! Let's celebrate with a post about it! :)

If you haven't been following along with all of our living room/built in/closing in a wall adventure, you can read more about that herehereherehereherehere, anddddd finally here.

Let's start with the view of the room if you are facing the sitting area of the living room. As you may remember, there was a pink wall covering over wood - we had to add sheetrock, we added a beadboard ceiling, and lighting/new electrical to the room - among many other things. It was our first time to hang drywall and I'd say we did pretty good for first timers. Here's our yucky room before. Notice the front door has never been painted fully - my guess is it used to be pink. Imagine that!


And after... 


Here are a few more before and after living space views.

On our next wall, we added the project that took forever built ins. J built the whole thing and closed in that door that you see in the next picture. That door goes to a bedroom so that was totally awkward.


After
check out the ceiling & the new light fixture in the reflection of the tv - and can't forget my $29 sconce on the wall 




ob-sessed with my cabinet hardware



And, we can't forget about the ceiling. No before on this one.  You wouldn't believe the discussion that went into which way the beadboard would run. 


And there you have it, one more room to add to our accomplishments. This one was a doozy and I'm so glad it's finished and looking just like I had envisioned. For fun, let's compare my inspiration pic to how my built ins actually turned out.

And my very own. 



Not too shabby in my opinion. There are still lots of little accessories I'd hope to pick up to add more to our coffee table, but for now, it's exactly what we need.  Hope you follow us to our next room :)

Oh, and if you missed any of our other completed rooms, you can check out our new dining room here and our bathroom renovation here.
