As I shared in my super lengthy post about our family room remodel it took a grand total of 9 months (and several thousand words) to share what changes we made.
When I did my big reveal several photos were missing, and so was a big room wide shot. That was intentional since we had temporarily moved another couch into the room and I needed to tidy everything up. 😉
As a reminder here are the before pics:
Before I share the big room reveal I had to include this gratuitous shot of the step up to our kitchen (ignore the ugly tile) since we built it ourselves! I sanded and stained it, but my Dad did most of the build work. 😉
The wood is oak, and we chose espresso stain to add some depth and drama to the otherwise very light room.
You can also see a close up of the carpet-a big looped Berber in a stain friendly color with a super duper memory foam pad underneath. It’s so cushy. The tone of the picture makes it look a bit whiter than it is in person, the base color is more of a taupe/light brown with darker threads mixed in.
Here’s the wide angle shot from the kitchen looking down into the family room (minus the mantle-more on that soon!).
Here’s a shot from the back corner of the room. This would have been where the door and built-ins originally were!
