Family Room & Dining Nook

It’s been a while since I posted any progress photos and the Family Room / Dining Nook is pretty much done so here goes. (I'm really not sure if nook is the right term but a few people have called it that so I'm going with it.)

The Family Room / Dining Nook / Kitchen is a long room that runs the entire length of the back of the house. This is where we spend most of our time. I definitely feel like the room is still a little under-accessorized but that will come in time.

Here is the 'before' from when we looked at the house (taken from the kitchen side) - way too yellow toned for us!

Here's Josh finishing up painting the ceiling (I do the walls, he does the ceilings - and even though there are more walls I still feel like I got the better deal!)

And here it is today!

We painted, put in new blinds and replaced the ceiling fan (this is actually the 4th ceiling fan - we returned the first 3 because we kept changing our minds - yes I'm that picky!)

We wanted to get rid of the yellow tone but still have a warm feeling in the room. I love a lot of black but I also like to keep things light and airy and I think we did a good job of balancing the two.

The dining nook. We decided to do curtains instead of vertical blinds over the sliding glass door.

We still need to do something with that fireplace …
