We bought our house from an old lady who was the original owner of the home which was built in 1971.

NOTHING CHANGED from 1971 till we moved in!! :sonicjay:

What we started with.





And then we moved in and added our funiture.





And then I went crazy and replaced the walls, hardwired my surround sound. Added an electrical outlet above the fire place for my flatscreen. Then put up crown moulding.

Had some one lay the floor (very very good price if your interested) and then finished it with baseboard.

We know have this!











I have to finish some little things like switching all the old brown switches out for some nice new white ones and shoe around the fireplace and refinish the mantle but it's pretty much done!!! :woot::woot::nana::nana::nana::woot::woot:


So what do you guys think?

Isn't it hard to watch T.V. on the couch, seems like you would get a neck cramp. But it looks good.

It's actually perfect viewing if your laying down. The man chair will be awesome!

I'd get rid of the two seater and face the three seater directly towards the tv.

Also seems like the TV is a bit high.

But, what the fuck do I know. Looks a lot better than it did that's for sure. :beer:

TV points down at you. It's roughly 6" of the mantle. But yeah, it takes a second or two to get used too.

And that big open room is for my new MAN CHAIR :naughty:

Thanks for all the suggestions!

Nice job with the room, looks way better. I personally would've gone with a different TV/couch layout, but I'm not the one living there so I can't complain.

Very nice. The wifey: and I are in the process of house hunting right now and it's nice to see what can be done.

When we find a house that I like and she might not see the potential in, I may have to pull up this thread! :thumb:

Are you going to replace the old safety railing from the other room?
No, I'm just going to paint the old railing white. Before I do that though I need to sad down the wood trim around the edge of the kitchen and the thread on the stairs and stain them to match the floor. I'll stain the Mantle, trim and thread all at the same time. I don't want to put it back but it's kinda a must.

I'm thinking about putting cabinets their when we start on the kitchen. That's the next project once the house fund replenishes itself :teehee:

Looks nice.. My neighbor put an LCD tv over her fireplace... Needless to say its now melted :sonicjay:..


I can't believe there isn't a rail between the dining area and living room. That looks dangerous.
