Family Room – Shine DIY & Design

BEFORE

AFTER

I remodeled the fireplace and built-ins, added a floor to ceiling board and batten style wall treatment and crown moulding, and gave the whole room a makeover for the 2018 Spring One Room Challenge.

Now this room is one of our favorite places to hang out!
