We decided to turn our unused garage into a new Living Room! Don't worry - we still have a big shop to put the cars in :) I am going to post pictures from the beginning tear out, to painting and decorating... Enjoy!

Waiting for their new room :)  The one on the left was added a couple of weeks ago - a Craigslist find (I love CL!).  Notice all of the antlers and sheds on top of the cabinet... they are  for one of the projects I have in mind for our new sconce lighting!  Stay tuned!
