Before and After

The living room/add-on was our biggest project to tackle moving into this are some before and after pictures:

Before: Dark, dungeon-esque room from the 70's. Dark paneling, orange brick, dark cedar beams on a low ceiling.

After: Paneling removed, drywall installed/textured/painted. Beams and ceiling painted. Orange brick painted. Brown mantel painted black to match fireplace. 8'x10' rug placed over tile for soft carpet-like play area (please ignore toy mess and lack of decorations...everything isn't complete yet).

Before: Same room, other side.
After: not quite the same angle, but we made this side look almost as if it had a built-in office. Not pictured is the French-style doors we replaced the old sliding door with.
