when you move into someone else’s home, you acquire, among other things, someone else’s bad taste. there were things that needed fixing right away – like the black and silver puff painted bathroom. there were things that we knew we’d probably never fix. and there were the things we wanted to fix…at some point in the future. well, for my family room, that point is now.
i’ve lived with the previous owners’ eyesore of a fireplace and fugly green carpet and fake wood shutters for the past 5 years. and i’m done. i’m so done.
now, my challenge to you is this.
1. floors. carpeting? hardwood? what do you think? the problem is that we have hardwood on the rest of the first floor (minus the kitchen) and we are not going to be able to match it. can we still put hardwood down?
2. fireplace. what to do with it? any ideas?
3. paint. our couches are navy blue. and the walls in the connecting kitchen are a light blue.
and here are the embarrassing photos:
(we are keeping the couches for now. and the ikea cabinets. the tv will be replaced in november…we are just trying to decide what size we want. i say 50 inch….to fill the space. the husband thinks the room is too small for 50 inch)
