Before and After - Lounge Room

Mission accomplished. Number 3 is finished, once and for all!
Here are some before and after pics...first up, the lounge room




Framing up....

All finished.

The carpet is the same as the small bedroom, which is right next to this room. MONT smashed up the old concrete hearth and replaced it with some pieces of beautiful sandstone that we had left over.... and the new heater will not only warm this room, but the entire house! The curtains are just hemmed continuous white nylon, the same as in the rest of the house, and there's a plain white, block-out blind.

I have to tell you it is so satisfying knowing that it's all done and that it looks so nice. In fact, I think it looks better now than when I lived there all those years ago.

Tomorrow, the kitchen and family rooms. They look really good too. If I say so myself.


  1. What a wonderful and eye opening transformation. Night and day. You guys did such a great job. I don't know what else to say except this is a job that needs to be in a home redo magazine, and I love the carpet and I love love the curtain you made. Thanks for letting us see it along the way!!

  2. Well done, seeing your place evolve after lots of hard work is an exciting event. Congratulations.

  3. Mont and the boys and of course you have all done a wonderful job of making over No.3


I love to hear your thoughts.
