wanna see what I have been up to??

Well over the last 2 weeks we have been remodeling our lower level of our house, We bought our house 3 yrs ago come this July. We plan to sell the house this spring. So we had to make it pretty hehe.
We wanted to do the updated when we first moved in, but life got hectic.

So anyway. We had to rip out the ugly grey carpet we had that had green border lol and then we needed to paint the family room a more neutral color. To appeal to all buyers. The room was red, and had oak trim and oak ledges. The ledges got white paint, and the walls got a med grey shade.

It was a very time consuming project. I ripped up all the carpet and the carpet pad all by myself :) little miss girly girl hehe. Then I had to take out the carpet tack strips.. and that was a huge pain in the butt!

overall it was a ton of work and i even lost 2 pds doing it ROFL!

Here are some pics :)

Before

after

the fireplace insert was gold
 before of the chairs.. these are ones that my parents gave me and I re-did them

 after of the chairs- black paint and new fabric made them look new again
 I painted the insert black, and the mantel white and the ledges around the room white
 Nice new light wood flooring.. the whole lower level got this floor, along with my sons room and my makeup room. I will post those pics later
 hallway after- new baseboard-flooring
