My new room




Here it is!!  It is finally finished!!  Since so many changes have been going on in my personal life lately I needed a change in my house.  I switched the living room and the family rooms.  Last fall we had tore up the carpet in the living room and hallway and never replaced it.  Since I didn't have the money for wall to wall carpet I decided to paint the floor and put down an area rug.  We then moved the furniture into the room.  Of course then we had to get some new curtains and new pictures for the wall.  The cost of the rug was $100 and I got the thermal curtain panels for $71.  I was proud of the money that I saved on the remodel of the room.  I was able to redo the entire room for under $300 and now I feel like I am living in a new house.    The old family room has been turned into the dining room and now I am not sure what I am going to do with the old dining room.    I think I am done with home remodeling for a while because it will now be grass cutting time and I will be busy with outside work.
