We've been busy here the past few weeks. A look at the photo below will show you what our livingroom looked like before we moved in, what we changed it to, and then the work that has been done in the past two weeks. It's not finished yet - the mantle is only primed, and the walls are mudded but not painted - but I do think that it's quite an improvement! I like it a lot. Thanks to Nick Vanderheide and Dan vanOosten for helping Brian and I do this!
