Extreme Family Room Makeover Revealed!

I've taken advantage of the generosity and talent of my parents to get some home improvement done while they're here. Most of our time is spent in our family room, so that was the place to tackle first. I mentioned at Christmas time that my ever-talented and expert craftsman brother built a new fireplace mantel for us. Here's the before...

Seth was dying to help out, running around shouting "Seth paint too!" between verses of "Bob the Builder." So here he is "helping" Grandpa with the roller.

And ta-da! Here's the after...
It makes me smile whenever I walk in the room. What's next? Maybe we'll actually have furniture in our living room someday. For now, I'm loving our cozy little nest we call home sweet home.
