Living room update

When we purchased the house it was decorated very modern.
We decided to make the living room a formal sitting room which meant tearing out the black carpet, the stark white tile at the entry way and adding some more wood work.
After tearing everything out I decided to remove an old air return in the ceiling and some old thermostats from the old attic air conditioning system.
We added chair rail and some nicer moldings to the list. We topped of the project with real hardwood floors ( my first attempt)
My Ryobi circular saw and miter saw really came in handy here.
Well after some new paint and a lot of sweat equity the room looks great.
Now to fill it with some nice antiques.
