Wide Open Spaces

When we first moved into this house we found ourselves loving every inch of it and we had a blast decorating each individual room. As I mentioned in my office post, the front living space in the house was being used as our dining room.

We found in the first months of being here that we never went in that space. It's actually the largest room in the house and it felt totally wasted. 

We decided to have a local renovation group come give us a quote to open up the walls to make one large room instead of a front dining space and smaller living space in the back. We were really surprised by the affordable quote, so we also had them open up the wall between the kitchen and the back living space.

Today's post is going to highlight the new living room that you see as soon as you enter our home!  The other rooms will have future posts dedicated to them but we've got some painting to do first!

Here is this space before we moved in and before the carpet was replaced...

And this is what it looked like after we were using it as a dining room, but before the french doors to the office were complete...

And this is what it looks like now!

You can see over the back of the couch that our dining space was relocated to the back of the house. With the wall down, you can easily see from the front to the back of the house! I can't wait to share more soon!
