Kristi’s space {family room}

My husband & I recently moved from our 1000 sq. ft. house into a slightly bigger home of 1300 sq. ft. {That 3rd bedroom is a lifesaver!}  Since we’re renting, we’re not doing much but before we moved in, we did transform the space a bit.  Loving this Simple living room with board and batten wall treatment!
Here’s the before….
 er, kind of before. The board & batten was already completed when I took this shot.

…the during
{We used LOTS of primer! I hated the color red by this point! lol}
…and the after:

I like it. 
I realize there’s no coffee table, area rug to bring in color, side tables with lamps and etc., but, the basics are there and the red is gone ;)

Besides, who doesn’t  crisp white board & batten?


It’s not my dream family room but  that we are able to make the space ours while we’re here for these short months :)

    love that you added the step up from the kitchen. It makes it it's own space.
