Here's a look at what we started with and where we are now..
So, we started with this wall... the wall divided our kitchen and our family room. While both spaces are large I hated the idea of not being able to keep an eye on D.. and with another one on the way.. I think the open space would just make life easier.. and just think about how wonderful it would be to be able to entertain in an open floor plan. This is the view from our kitchen.
Now looking at the same wall from the family room. To the right, the green room is what would be a formal living room. Notice the faux wood pillars along the wall, outdoor lantern lights hang off them.. the walls are a faux textured plaster like pattern.. now the interesting part.. the faux texture was not something that was painted on, instead they are plastic like panels nailed to the wall.. not sure what the owners were thinking.. or maybe this is just the result of the 70's?
Behind me a brick wall with a gas fireplace..
and walah! wall gone. : ) Gone ugly plaster walls and nasty old carpet..
We had a sliding glass door in the family room
and a set of double hung windows in the dining area..
we moved the sliding glass doors to the dining area.. and installed a large picture window in the family room..
and lastly, we widened the narrow doorway connecting our family room to our formal living room.
my brain is over flowing with ideas.. we have been thinking paint colors.. what do you think?
