Living Room - Project Dream Home

This was the living room before we moved in. As you can see it was all very beige and traditional. All in all not our style. Once the furniture was out we could see the carpet was in terrible condition.

The first thing we did in the living room was paint the walls. We used Sherwin Williams "Gray Screen". We ripped out the carpet and installed LVP(luxury vinyl plank) throughout most of the main level. Let me tell you, with dogs, this was the best flooring choice I have ever made. We love the color, the feel, and how easy it is to clean. 

Remember sometimes to take a break and kick your feet up.

You can see a more detailed tutorial on how to refinish cabinets here. We refinished them using Rust-Oleum Transformations in Castle. I have been thrilled with the results. It's a 3 coat process. It's time consuming but well worth it.
