A pretty big before and after!

Loved all the comments on Angie's blue doors.  I was over there yesterday and took some more shots, so I will be posting them soon.  We are leaning towards the gray only because it doesn't show the dirt as much but we are putting up samples this week.  I will keep you posted.  Now on to a great before and after.

I have posted on the bedroom redo in this house here.  Here is  another makeover in the girls playroom in the same house.   Hold on to your hats because this before picture is quite the shot!
 
When they moved in this room  kind of got mostly left over furniture from other rooms.  If you look really hard you can see a piece of exercise equipment.  Across from the sofa is the TV and with 4 girls, this room gets much wear and tear!

We started by re- purposing  the 2 sofas that were in the keeping area off the kitchen.  Here is a picture of them.

Maybe we could have bought 2 new ones but I did love the tuxedo arm and they size was good.  Sometimes you have to take into the consideration the time it would take to  search for new.   We only had 6 weeks to do the whole house.

Here is the room after major editing!!!!!
Another before:


We had the back cushions made a little taller, added the button in the middle, and a little bit of nailhead around the feet.
The rug was formerly in the master bedroom, so that was our inspiration for the color scheme.

I think the sofa's look like new!  
The coffee table was oak and we had it stained black.  You can still see the wood grain in it.  The bench was from Homegoods.  Had the legs also stained black, recovered and we added the trim with the nailheads on top.
I wish I had a before picture of the corner.  She had the cart and the mirror in the garage.....after some staging,all we did was buy the lamp.  We had the room painted a grayish white and the TV case, and all the windows painted a darker color.
The window seat before.
And after....
Before:  This is the hallway leading into the room.  There is a microwave and sink for popcorn making etc.
They had the bench, we added paint and a cushion.  New rug.

I wish I had more pictures of the area behind the sofa.  I also need to get some shots of a small bath off this  room.  
The whole room transformation took a lot of organizing and purging!!!  And I have to say they were thrilled with the outcome.

You have out-done yourself! There are so many details to love that I'm not sure what to pick first! It is between the nail head trim on the sofas (which DO look like new) or painted all the trim and built-ins the darker grey. That is one swanky play room!

{This is going on Friday Favorites this week.}
