Remodel Revealed

Hi Y'all,
Well here are some pictures of part of the big remodel. This was the room that was intended to be the dining room. It is not very big, and is right as you come in the front door. Our kitchen eating area is much larger so we never used this as a dining room anyway. Well Hubby decided to turn it into a little living room where he can go to read and maybe listen to music. So here we go......

First of all he added the french doors and the molding, this was just an opening before.

I painted the inside a color called Aztec Brick, it is really a warm cozy color. It looks better in person, the pictures make it too orange.

Every thing in here has been recycled from other parts of the house. We just got a new blind for the window. As you can see I haven't really done any decorating yet, and I need to put up some kind of window covering. Most of the things in here will be Hubby's so it's not going to be foo-fee at all
Here is looking out the doors to the stairs.
We also dry walled over the opening that went into the kitchen, and made a pantry in that spot.
I will have to take pictures of that as well.

So that's what we've been up to.

Now I need to tackle my craft room, again, YIKES!
Have a great day and Safe New Year's Eve!
