Let me take you way, way, way back to just how this room looked when we moved in:
We had the walls smoothed out, hardwood put down, window taken out, half wall taken out, and door taken out and closed up. Once that big stuff was taken care of, we were finally able to really tackle what we wanted!
So of my favorite parts of it are the fact that we now have a gas fireplace! After much debate, and help from you guys here, I am so glad we went with gas. I also love the tile around the fireplace. And of course, that mantle. It is already starting to get covered with Christmas decor, and I am just giddy! In our old home I could never put much of anything on the mantle because the TV was hung above it, but not the case here:)
We will have more posts as we decorate the room and add the finishing touches, but we couldn’t wait to show you. Hope you like it. Last photo I will leave you with is this room being used for our Thanksgiving dinner (post on details to follow this week)
