Never trust me when I say "I'll be back tomorrow to post". A few weeks ago, I shared some images but I wanted to come back and share the before. In order to truly appreciate the finished product, you have to see the state it was in before.
This house had a leak that started in the walls and spread to the floors, which meant we were able to demo quite a bit of the house. So let's call it a blank slate. A few decisions I am happy I made:
1. We drywalled over the blocky shelves above the fireplace. I added brass sconces and inset the TV in the drywall. It just looks cleaner.
2. I had this wall removed to make the kitchen, living room and dining room open to each other.
3. We painted the walls white and the trim + doors grey. I debated about this for a long time, but I love how it updated the house.
