Living and Dining Room Makeover

This is a little belated, but I am so proud of the renovation we did so far and I thought you guys would enjoy some before and after pictures. We pulled up (ourselves) the yucky old carpet, had the floors refinished, painted and redecorated. It's hard to capture on camera, but there was a lot of paint involved in the living room. The wood paneling was a very dark stain and it took 3 coats of kiltz primer and 2 coats of paint to get the final result. There are still a few more things left that need to be done, but overall it is amazing to me what a little paint and some redecorating will do. We still have to paint the entire upstairs and do a few things to the kitchen, as well as the full and half bath, which will be our biggest and most expensive project, and one that we won't be able to do ourselves. It was A LOT of work to do the painting, but it saved a lot of money and it was so worth it. This is our first house.

Awesome transformation and you must be very proud that you did it yourselves. It's very gratifying - I know, I've been there. Enjoy your "new" house. It's beautiful!

It looks wonderful!! That is a big job to do, but so worth it in the end when you can stand back and just admire your work!! Way to go!
