We have been busy. Very busy. About 6 weeks ago I volunteered to host "dessert" for our annual neighborhood progressive dinner party. We knew that neighbors coming over + crazy dirty *stinky* ugly family room = no good. So we figured this was just as good as any time to remodel our family room.

we Jeret removed the spindles. This was a load bearing wall so he consulted another fire fighter/ contractor to help with structural advice. One of the best characteristics of my husband is that he does things right the first time. He does his research and does a good job. I would trust his work even more than a paid professional.
We painted the paneling, removed the fireplace insert, replaced the garage entry door and installed hardwood floors (finally)! We bought these hardwood floors almost 1 year ago when we purchased the house. We definitely take our time around here and work on projects one day at a time.

We still need to add baseboards... but we will get to that after we enjoy the room for a little while.
P.S Here is the rug that is on its way :)
