Family Room/Kitchen Remodel

I have had several requests to share some pictures of our remodel.  This took many weekends of painting, tiling the family room floor, and making the valances and curtains!   Whew!  I am grateful that this process is over and now I can look back and enjoy all our hard work.  I am always amazed at how just painting a room a different color has a metamorphic effect.    The room was red(yes ,red) and the other walls a mustard yellow.  I sometimes miss my red kitchen.  Nothing energizes a room more than red!!  Currently, the rooms are beige and a deep chocolate brown on accent walls.  Love it!!   Here are some before and after pictures!

DH and  I recovered the valances with new fabrics -with staple gun in hand and tenacity!  I sewed the panel curtains you see!  Sew fun!   I have some leftover fabrics to make some coordinating pillows.  On my to-do-list!  This is a great time of year to redo a room and it is so rewarding when you do it as a team!  What room would you like to makeover? ;)

That's a big difference, it looks so warm and inviting. Also, the colors you chose are spectacular. Love the way you coordinated the fabric and accessory colors
