Family Room Re-Do Part 1

So, as I mentioned yesterday, the family room re-do at Eventually Cottage is in full swing!

I'm going to warn you now, some of the following pics are just plain SCARY!!!!

By far, the most ambitious project of the entire re-do was the taking down of the wall between the family room and the stairs.

I'd been wanting to do this ever since we bought the house, but thought it would be too big of a project for us to tackle. Well, Prince Charming also had this project in mind and decided to tackle it head on!

This first pic was right after the big HOLE was put in the wall...SCARY!

(You can see before pics of the family room HERE)

This is truely a family project... everyone got in on it!

George helped...

Josie helped...

Even little Maya helped...

This pic was after one coat of stain. It's going to need a few more coats. I've realized that I absolutely HATE staining.

I'm so happy with the way things are going. This first project completely changed the look and the feel of the house. I absolutely LOVE it!

Stay tuned for more episodes in the SCARY family room re-do!!!

Oh, I almost forgot... I ran into Big Lots the other day and SCORED big time!!!! I'll have to take some pics and show you all of the fabulousness!!!! Stay tuned!
