Before I get into too much progress I am going to go ahead and post the rest of the “before pictures”. Here is the living room’s current state.
A few things I wanted to point out are: #1, notice the beautiful water damage on the ceiling and the pealing paint on the fireplace. #2, The raw plywood ceiling and lack of trim. #3, The grey painted tile floors which actually look a ton better in the photo then in real life. #4, the awesome cheapo track lighting. We also inherited the white sofas from the previous owner which are great to have for now but will probably want to replace these too further down the line.
