Wall Removed To Make Bigger Living Room

Wall Removed To Make Bigger Living Room
contributed by EmTea Designs

Hey Everyone!

So here is the final unavailing of our room. We all remember how hideous it was before right? (also notice the blinds, you are going to see them made over soon)


Two rooms, that were completely wasted space, so we decided to knock the wall down, and make it one nice cosy family room. We had to get a builder to remove the wall and put up a beam, as it was a load bearing room. He jacked it up on stilts, and took a few days.


After that we ripped up all the tiles and carpet, and smoothed out our concrete slab.
The boys spent a weekend hanging up all new plaster to cover the bricks, and make the wall have an even finish.
Then after sanding and finishing the plastering, we painted the whole room in dulux, cloud cream.
Then after leveling the floor,hubby spend HOURS AND HOURS laying our new timber laminate floor. He watched a video youtube and it told him it would take 2 hours. What a joke! all in all I’m pretty sure it took about 60 hours to finish the floor.

It looks so natural and I’m so in love with it.

Remember the old blinds? Well I spray painted them chocolate brown.
And here is the final product!


We soooo need a plasma to go on the blue stand

Am going to get a white coffee table and side tables

    Also loving the black and white cushions on your settee. We also have choc brown leather and as I've done the natural look before, I want to do something very different this time around.

  2. >WOW!! That looks amazing!! So much better. Love the huge new room. The 2 hr floors look very nice LOL Good job, now do you wanna come and do my house?? LOL


  3. >What an incredible transformation. You should be so proud! And I hear you on the laminate thing. We have laid about 1,000 sq. ft. of it in our house and, while we love it, it's definitely harder to do than they'd have you believe.
