Living Room...almost finished.


The latest in our house remodel. Living room is almost finished...just a few baseboards to install. We moved walls, retextured, painted (19' ceilings and walls), new flooring, furnishings, rugs, etc., all for under $4000, including the furniture, accomplished by bargain shopping, garage sales, estate sales, auctions, craig's list, and doing the work ourselves.
Outdated 80's light fixtures
View from upstairs
Useless wing wall, which was mirrored on the back and narrowed down entry path.
