At Home: Great Room

So we loved this house for many reasons.  But it was the great room that had our heart.  Not that it was always a great room.  Nope, it  used to be my mother-in-law's home daycare room.  The room is big, really big.  There was a sink and counters.  We gutted it when we bought the house. 

The house only had 1.5 baths so we decided to build a full bath in this room.  This will allow us to renovate the master bath and close it off to everyone but us!  And the kids will still have a bathroom to themselves.

Here is the space during the renovation.  You can see the framing for the new bathroom going up!  Crazy how that space was designed.  Think me and some blue painter's tape....masking out several different floor plans!

The door to the left is to the hallway and the back one leads to a porch and staircase to get outdoors.


I am showing you this side of the room first because it matches the first photo in this post!  Just all done!  We decided to do a wet bar and have a place to hang out, do crafts, play games or eat.  Pizzas can get plopped on the counter and friends can be entertained.  The hallway leads to the bathroom, which I will show next week.  Check out the exercise stuff...P90X happening for me!

This is what the details look like.  A one day shopping trip to Marshall's filled up that shelf from my MIL.  We were able to reuse their old quartz countertops from the old kitchen, which makes me happy!  These cabinets are from Home Depot, white laminate and I love them.!

Here is the living room side:

Steve's dream come true with that TV!  I love this space so much.  There is a ton of light and the space fits all of us nicely!  It is truly the family room!  It was the last space to get done in the renovation, but it was worth the wait!

I will show you details and the new bathroom next time!

Happy Sunday!
