As promised, here is the living room makeover in our new cottage. Nothing structural happened here except the widening of the opening to the kitchen, but a lot of new paint was involved and a complete switch out of our over-sized furniture. Because we sold most of our old furniture apart from some family pieces and bought less furniture overall, we didn’t have to spend too much more to furnish this cottage. Watch my video of the after.
Here are a couple of shots of the before photos – nothing too terrible but too much furniture of the wrong size and sort.
And here is what the living room looked like during renovations. The kitchen was gutted so we had to set up a make-shift kitchen in here and cover all the furniture because of the endless dust from breaking everything apart.

Gracious! That looks like a living room out of a magazine! It is so lovely! Just wonderfully put-together.
I’ll go and give this a thumbs up on YouTube later.
Thanks, Shala. A thumbs up would be great. They are hard to come by.

Another lovely room. You have such interesting pieces. I really love the safe, the little drum table and the swivel chair!
Thanks, Katrina. I love all the different textures and patterns too.
