I know how much y’all love before and after stories. My family room didn’t always look like this! Today I’m giving you a before and after tour of my family room so you can see the transformation for yourself.
As you can see, painting the exisiting bookcases made a huge impact. And adding french doors to the patio make entertaining much easier!
I added another set of french doors on the opposite side of the fireplace.
The new color scheme is much more cheerful for my family. The crimson was too dark!
I painted the trim around the fireplace for a cleaner look. I also mounted the television above the fireplace so that it was viewable from all three seating areas.
This is the approximate layout of the family room of the previous owners.
As you can see, even by adding 2 sets of french doors to the room, I was able to dramatically increase the seating in the awkward space.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the tour around my family room! xo Tobi
