Living Room Work

Living Room Before

Living Room After

This living room was almost the deal breaker in buying this house. The paneling was ugly, made the room dark and gave it a very 70’s vibe. That makes sense, considering that’s probably when it went in. Two weekends ago we painted the previously white walls in Behr “Lion”, a shade that is kind of like hazel eyes. It seems brown when green is nearby, green with brown. Last weekend we did the paneling in the same shade. Dramatic improvement!

I hate doing crap like this, but I have to admit that it is definitely making the house better.

    That looks really nice, Dave. Congrats! We did some minor home improvement stuff this past weekend, and were amazed at the difference it made. You get used to things that aren’t working out quite right, and deal with them…but when you take time out and fix them, it’s really awesome. One spends way too much time in one’s home; improvements there really count for a lot.
