Okay so it's never going to be fully finished but here are a few shots of what things looked like from the previous owners and now that we live here:
Living Room Before:
Living Room After:
***We painted the paneling 3 different shades of blue (Renoir, Impressionist, and Ocean Water) with white trim and hung curtain rods. I have canvas paint drop cloths that I am going to hem for curtains. Yeah their entertainment center was way cooler than ours...
***We carpeted with Tiki Hut. Before it was linoleum over cement with metal edging. Downstairs was the same linoleum.
***They used the space for bedrooms and we've made it a playroom. We are working on drywall stuff for the second space under the stairs. The plan is to put in a window as well so it will be a little kitchen playhouse. There is also a small walk-in closet where we store games and toys.
Art Room Before:
Art Room After:
***They used it as a home office/library. We are using it for an art space. Sarah and Katelyn have both had interesting mayhem with the paint so now there is a baby gate to control access a little more...
