Family Room: Progress? Not so much…

Remember when I had that “great” idea to change up the family room a bit?  Read about that HERE, if you need to refresh your memory.  I know my memory is crystal clear about this situation.
So, it was supposed to be a minor redo of sorts.  
Ya know, a new sofa, rug, a bit of paint on the walls, etc.
Just a bit of paint has turned into a LOT of paint.
No joke.  
It has spread like a disease.  
It has slowly traveled from the family room, to the kitchen, the the dining room, to the hallway and foyer, the stairwell, the upstairs hallway……
Oh, and don’t forget that when you paint walls, you need to paint ceilings.  And trims.  
Then, you need new accessories and light fixtures.
So, you want to see some updated photos of our redo?
You sure?
It is looking pretty dang fancy right about now.
It doesn’t get much fancier than this, am I right?


Nothing like a house full of primed walls.

See the paint cans near Reggie?
Our “plan” is to get it up on the walls next weekend.

Eventually, this will get finished.

    I’ve had the same thing happen here but on a much, much smaller scale. It looks like it’s going to be beautiful and I enjoy seeing the progress photos.

    One project rolls into another. One lovely room makes the rest look not so lovely. Which is what I’m a tad afraid of going into this half bath remodel. When we are done, the kitchen is going to look very sub-par.
    Everything looks amazing! White is so crisp and clean. You are a hard worker!
