This is the room before. The previous owners used it as their dining room. We switched the room layout a little bit so the green walls, green ceiling, off-white moldings and grandma curtains all had to GO! The chandelier I actually like but it is being moved to our new dining room.
This is our room after! Dark gray walls, white moldings, new ceiling fan (Conner picked it out – he is very proud) and of course, orange curtains!
A view of the room after! Our TV stand broke in the move, so we are currently using the bar as a TV stand. In the years to come, we would like to get a bigger TV (32″ just won’t cut it!) and a new media stand. For now, its actually pretty handy to have the bar in the “Man Room.” 🙂
One more ‘before’ shot…
The doorway going straight leads to the kitchen (we’ve started updates on it…whew!) and to the left goes to the other living room. Of course Max had to creep in the pictures.
A view of the bar/TV stand and the decorated shelves. They hold vintage OSU pictures, pictures of us, pictures of Conner with some of his college buddies and golf memorabilia from when I worked for the PGA. I had to put some ‘girl’ (the Twilight books plus fancier decorations) with the ‘man.’ (OSU, Golf, etc.)
So that’s our updated room! We are very happy with it and spend a lot of time in here. I’m sure we’ll continue to update and changes things as the years go by, but for now it is perfect!!
