And the wall came tumbling down!



I had so many people visiting from this Blog Party we just had to make more room! So, the top pic is the same view you could see in the before pics below, the lower pic is the new view from the other end of the room! That half of the new living room was called the "music room", the "dog room", the "play room", and was previously a bedroom for one of the three teenage girls that lived with us. It had a closet, so, now we have to figure out where to put all our coats, but wowee zowee, is our new living room big! I think we might even have room for Ben's gianormous family to visit now! I'll keep ya updated with pics when we get the place cleaned up (notice who's doing that!).

I would so love to take one of our downstairs walls down. It would mean a total redecoration though because the rooms are so different. But there's no way we could afford to right now.

A previous owner of our house took down a wall at some point. We have always been so glad that they did. It makes our small house feel so much roomier.

Hi
I found you through the Blog Party. :)

We knocked out a wall between our kitchen and living room for a similar effect as what you got. Yours looks a lot nicer than ours does, though!

I'm a Christian mom of six kiddos and I work from home. Dollymama is my personal blog, and I also have a baby boutique blog (for my business) that you might enjoy:

We will be having some fun and giveaways there later this month so you can check it out and see if you would like to get involved. :)

I can't wait to come see your "new" house. i love to paint so if you need help painting, just let me know. (don't tell my room-mates I said that though cuz i put new windows in my house last fall and the trim is still waiting to be painted) :).
