More remodel - Living and library alcove!

I have to say I've been sick again so have not been active here, I apologize. Kind of messes with my mind. I did finish my painting and the last entry of it was pretty much done except for my signature. Feels great I must say.

Well, on to more remodel pictures. Again we gutted this house before we moved in and did the remodel. Today I will show the living room, library, and fireplace.


Before - We widened the doorway and fixed up the fireplace. New floors, vaulted ceiling, new beams, paint, walls...etc.

Before - This small door led into the kitchen. We totally opened it up and punched the bookcase through to the "music" room sometimes called the formal living. I didn't like that name and changed it to music room where the piano is and a game table. Notice the doors going into the kitchen. There were doors everywhere, even going down the hallway to the bedrooms.

This is where we punched through to make a library alcove. This is my favorite part of the remodel.

Again, we widened the doorway into this room
Vaulted ceiling, beams and of course lighting. The Hubby is an electrical contractor extraordinaire. Notice the opening into the kitchen. No more doors!

Jill, thanks for stopping by. I love the pictures of your remodeling. It is such a huge undertaking, but so worth it. You certainly have a lot going on. I have had fun reading your blog and just love the prom dress. I committed the worst of the worst...I wore the same dress to my prom two years in a row. I'm sure no one would do that these days. Anyway, thanks for stopping by and come back soon. Susan

somehow I have missed out on your remodeling posts, so I went back and looked at your photos to catch up. Love the fact that you have "before" and "AFTER" pix. It's hard to believe it is the same place. I LOVE what you've done and I'm sure you're lovin' it too.


I love the the wall the warmth...awesome job. I am doing a giveaway starting on MOnday for my 200th post....stop by and comment....for a chance to win a basket of pamper goodies.

Jill your home is beautiful. I would kill for a library like that. Our books are in bookcases all over the house.
