This is the family room before we moved anything in. Blank slate? Absolutely!
The picture below is one taken after our first week. It's kind of an in-between stage for the family room.
And here we are with the new paint color! The room still feels really open, but just a little warmer than it was before. It's got a little more personality now as well. I'd show you how it looks in the kitchen, but there's a hot mess on the counter top next to the sink. I'll have to take a better (i.e. cleaner) picture this weekend.
