Living Room Makeover Before and After

A few weeks ago I shared our dining room before and after photos with you and now the living room is ready to reveal. This has been a few months in the making, but we did a complete overhaul and it was well worth the wait. It went from old grungy green carpet to hardwood flooring, from built-in floor to ceiling wallpaper to beautiful paint with bead board and from scratched up furniture and mix matched nick knacks to new furniture and coordinating decor. It is such a nice feeling to have what I really want in a room after all these years.

The before picture isn’t the best, but these photos are both from the same angle of the room. Before you can see the old furniture, ugly wall paper and green carpet. The after pretty much speaks for itself.

We completely redid the built-in entertainment center too, so look for a how to on that coming soon. Trust me, it looks completely different.

Have you recently redone a room in your home? If so and you have a link to a post, feel free to share it below. I love to see before and after photos.


  1. It looks so great Kathleen! I love that light fixture too and the white is so fresh and clean feeling. Love it!

  2. Thanks ladies. The light fixture is actually a fan too. I saw it and just had to bring it home.

  3. You guys did a beautiful job! It's gorgeous! One of these days I may put up before and after pics of our family room. Although we did it several years ago. 🙂

  4. your hardwood floors are breathtaking they make the room look so much larger what color did you paint the living room?

    I've been wanting to tackle my kitchen and I may take off next week from blogging a few days to get that done
