Our country living room completely remodeled! Over 2 years after purchasing our home we have finished our living room 100%. I’m so happy with the results!
Just to let you in on some of the tedious projects we had to do to get this room the way it is, here is a list 🙂 :
1.We ripped down that old paneling only to find TONS of glue on the walls we couldn’t sand off! So we did a full plastering job.
2.We put up the wainscoting and painted it along with all the chair rail trim and trim on top of the baseboard. Of course we had to paint all of it since it was DARK wood.
3.We got lucky with the floors, they were there hiding under the shag carpet. They just needed a good cleaning! They aren’t perfect, but with pets they wouldn’t be for long anyway:)
4.We updated all the electrical wires, lighting, outlets, etc.
5. We added the beams which are actually from pallets! We put molding up around those.
6.We added shutters to the front window. Those shutters were old wooden ones from the outside of the house that we repainted.
The coffee table/book shelf, TV shelf and built in book shelf were all hand built by my husband and I cherish the all so much:)
