or maybe family room… we have issues with what we are calling some of our main living spaces. It becomes confusing when trying to tell one another where to find something.
It’s a good size, 2 story with 2 nice skylights, has a fireplace and backs up to the kitchen. The layout is going to need some work because there is a fireplace, 2 slightly oddly placed windows in the corner, and a double door going into the study/guest room. We also can’t move the TV because that’s where the DirecTV comes into the house.
If you were really paying attention to the pictures of this room and the front room, you just might have noticed our issue with the movers. One book case in here. One in the front room. The chair in the front room and its ottoman in here. No biggie. ARG.
Ok, the plans… nothing huge:
- get professionals to remove the popcorn ceiling and paint the ceiling and walls. I am NOT taking on a 2 story room for either project. There are limits to my crazy.
- paint trim. I will, however, do this.
- get a mantle piece for the fire place. If you look really closely at the picture of the fireplace (maybe even blow it up), you might notice that 2 of the bricks are actually pieces of wood. Presumably these are in place to attach a mantle. This is the one and only project that has a specific deadline – December 1. I must have a mantle before I decorate for Christmas!
- somewhere down the road, we’ll get new carpets.
