I’ve got big plans to transform our boring living room into a Modern Traditional Living Room full of style and character.
Welcome, welcome. For those of you that are new here, hi! I’m Stephanie. I blog about all things DIY and Home Remodeling. My blog focuses mainly on projects I work on for my own home. From wallpaper to furniture design, DIY wall art to restoring your installing tongue and groove on a ceiling. I share it all here. So, my ORC Living Room Makeover Plans are a mix of DIY furniture, remodeling, and of course, lots of fun shopping finds.
My design plans include building furniture, upholstering old chairs, remodeling our fireplace wall, and changing the layout of the room. For the last six years, I’ve left our living room as a boring but functional place for babies to play. So, it’s time to start shaking things up, adding style, and going for that colorful, but light and bright feel I’ve been adding around the rest of the house.
But first, let’s see those embarrassingly boring before photos, right?! 😉
