Wow - I had totally forgotten how disgusting this room was when we first saw it last year. My nose can still smell the cigarette smoke smell that permeated everything in this place. The carpet was tragically stained, the brick and ceiling were yellow and the vents were all clogged with dust and insect parts. Gross....
So we took out the smelly carpet, James and Josh put Killz up on the walls and floor and we had a serviceable family room...not stylish but functional.
My next step was to get some warm nice color on the walls. We went with Hotel St Francis Fawn for the beige and Valspar French Quarter for the brick. Here are a couple of photos of the new paint and the vinyl laminate floor put down!
We finished it off by moving our sofas back over to the family room, added a TV stand that we got from my little brother, got a coffee table and end table and a new lampshade from Target and this AWESOME afro-shag rug from the Habitat for Humanity Re-store and VOILA - FAMILY ROOM!!!
