Combined Living + Dining Room Makeover

by Sabrina

We've been extremely busy at The Mod House Project since moving in. We are tackling room after room to ultimately finish our main floor (and eventually the entire house). We joined the One Room Challenge with the primary goal to update our combined living and dining room area. And that we did!

It all began with this very dated space. When we purchased our home last October, the previous owner’s set up had my husband ready to run out of the house. He couldn’t see past the old furniture, the ugly carpet, beige walls and off-centre light fixture. I, on the other hand, saw potential!

Its definitely come a long way. We totally transformed this combined living space to reflect both our style and needs. With new floors, some paint, a few added accessories and a DIY built-in, we are jumping with joy at the end result!

It was a lot of fun combining our old furniture pieces with some new ones in the room. The living room is by far home to one of my favourite DIY’s: the built-in bookcases.
