It’s where my husband hangs out so I’ve tried to make it reflect him more than me.
Last year I was able to combine 2 focal points into one.
To do this we had to put the really, really BIG television over the fireplace.
Here is a before picture of the room just after installing the TV.
This was taken by my painter but you can certainly get the idea of how things looked.
Lovely isn’t it?
Here is how it looks today.
re-position the furniture to make more floor space.
The previous position of the TV was where the brown chair is now.
I know many people hesitate to paint paneling because they think it won’t hold up.
We primed and painted 2 coats. It’s been over a year and it’s still in near perfect condition.
There are a few scratches along the baseboards where we have hit it with the vacuum.
I really need to get those touched up…
Painting the fireplace was a big decision as well but I don’t regret it one bit.
Sometimes you just have to take a leap of faith.
I had no idea how this room was going to turn out but it ended up being a huge improvement.
After all, it’s just paint.
