      Picture Time!

As of 1-1013 This is the most current layout of the formal living/dinning rooms. I had moved the mantel off the back wall and back onto the fireplace leaving a large open wall with no interest. So I pushed the hutch on over and instantly opened up the room. Someday I do hope to have French doors on said wall opening to the finished garage that will be my office/guest room/you name it room. But here are a few new pictures. Note the much better image quality! No more camera pictures! Thanks husband!

Wallpaper, Brass, Carpet and Heavy Curtains. But under it all was the good bones of an old house with many possibilities.

So That is the Basic breakdown of the ‘formal’ Living Room.
