We widened the entry and that improved the whole room.
This is supposed to be the living room but we use it as the dining room.
A dining room is important to me, because we seldom
(read never)entertain family and friends without a feast.

The door will look much better when I paint it red,
don't you think?
I already have the paint.
I'm just waiting for a day that I can
leave the door open and work
without being too hot.

The main bathroom
looks much better, Yes?

We had our contractor make the shower
with the same tiles that are all
over the entire house.

The shower is big enough that
it doesn't need a door.

The towels are my lovely "Dry Clean Only" purchase.
I didn't notice it till we got them home.
I don't let anyone use them because of that,
which is pretty stupid, if you ask me,
but I do it anyway.
"Don't use those!!
They are just for decoration!!"
(Eye roll)

We replaced the fireplace with this
Cozy Stove.
This small stove puts out so much heat that
sometimes I have to open the door to cool the house down.
Then facing the other way in the same room,
this is what we replaced the particle board shelves with.

This is where we watch TV and movies.

The dining room, kitchen TV room and what was once the designated dining room (I use it as my garden room and it is a great room to sit in and read) are all actually one huge room sort of divided by a partition that houses my fridge and service counter.
(coffee, toaster, micro, liquor cabinet, etc)

It is a work in progress but it's looking better.

Oh My Goodness! I almost missed the second part of this, with the "after" pictures -- which are stunning!

It looked as if it were two separate posts ... glad I kept scrolling down! Lovely transformation.

Fantasic make over. Really great choices. It's all coming together for you. Nice warmth that the the wood brings to the space. I'm going to look at more of your post to see what else you have been up to.

Thanks for stopping and leaving your sweet comment.

I have to tell you I'm not politacally involved person. It's more that I just take note of what is going on and how it relates to bible prophesies. I'm confident that very soon there will be a time when eveyone one will have there own home with out the threat of forclosure. Excellent health and satisfing work will be had by all. Some of the many blessings that will be brought about by God's Kingdom and his king designate, Christ Jesus.

I love how you turned the empty modern rooms into a warm and comfortable place that says "HOME"!
