We replaced the Berber carpet with hardwood floors and painted the area a neutral gray. We also gave the built-in a fresh coat of bright white paint.
And to address the drop-off we built a half wall because; safety first! Read more about the half-wall and dining room renovation here.
We also added crown molding (painted in bright white) to finish off the floors and ceiling.
We purchased the couch from Lazyboy and I adore it! Although it took over 10 weeks to get here and I almost couldn't make it through the wait!
Once the couch finally arrived I realized I had to bring the blue color into the room more, so I painted the back of the built-in (read more about that here).
Overall, I'm loving how the family/living room is shaping up. What do you think?
