I knew you’d love the in-laws’ basement family room remodel. (And, no. None of you can have my in-law. I’m still working out a business plan for a rental system. I think Steve, Joyce and I – acting as manager – could make some big bucks.)
So, I also took some other photos of my in-laws’ house for you. Decorating eye candy, so to speak. And I thought it would be fun to do a side-by-side comparison of the same rooms in the past.
This was the living room in 2009. (I shared these photos here.)
It’s such a pretty room. But, because my mother-in-law changes rooms more frequently than you change your underwear, here it is today.
Or more honestly, last week. Heck. It could be completely different by now.
It’s reading a little darker in here than in real life. I’m giving myself a pat-on-the-back, because my mother-in-law painted the room Seal by Martha Stewart after helping me paint our dining room in the same color. Usually I steal ideas from her, so this is a big deal.
I love the shelves.
And the plank wall.
It’s an evolving space. And I love it every time.
And now let’s compare the dining area. In 2009.
And last week.
And a few other areas I love in my in-laws’ home. Like the half bath.
The hallway nook.
The garage doors.
They have such a lovely home, so I hope you enjoyed the little tour. And thanks to them for allowing me to (or rather not prohibiting me from) taking these pictures to share.
