Before & After Friday

With only four Fridays left in Mini House I decided I'd highlight four rooms in four weeks to show off some transformations during our short time here!  Note: when you live in a Mini House - four rooms pretty much covers it.

I'll kick off this series with the living room.  Yes ladies and gentleman when we came for our showing the Pool Hall / Living Room was quite a surprise.  This is the first thing we saw when we walked through the front door.


In addition to the pool table, please note the following:
  • Elaborate overhead, Brunswick pool lighting
  • The Orange / Peach accent wall on the left
  • Shiny denim drapes
View from the Dining Room

During our closing I said to the seller "Oh, you must like pool." His response, "Not really. I just don't know what else you would have done with that room."  Umm... let's just say the conversation ended there.

First Step: Painting the ceilings & walls 

Pool Hall turned Sass Living Room

This is an older photo from a few months back
Dorsey Dog = my little home decor accessory

Basically a fresh coat a paint, a new overhead fan/light, curtains, a cute little Dorsey Dog and well some FURNITURE can really do wonders for a spot in my opinion. 

Enjoy your weekend!
