Before and After Family Room

Our den needed a major make over.....behind the wallpaper was paneling.....the ceilings had the old popcorn coating that had to be scraped off by hand.....and the carpet had to go!
The wall behind the love seat is coming down! Of course it was a load bearing there was so much more to this process than I realized.
And down comes the wall...(notice the kitchen in the background and see new kitchen in my other post)
Had to build a temporary stud wall for support before installing the upper beam.
New drywall was added
And the carpet pulled up
A new view of the wall taken down......remember the love seat that WAS sitting on the wall?
The beam is in......
New hardwoods installed in the dining room and den
View from the den into the dining room and kitchen.......We're almost there now
We love the open concept!!
My next adventure will be finding the right sofa's and rug for the new den!! Wish me luck!
