The Lounge room

Here are some before shots of the lounge room. It's a fairly decent size but, with two sets of french doors (one set opening out onto the sun room, the other opening out to the front entry) plus a bedroom door opening, it is kind of awkward to place our furniture. It is also the room where the TV lives, not so discretely.

The basic plan is to re-paint the room white - freshening up the VJ walls and bringing much needed light to the core of the house. Jason also wants to straighten the picture rail which is crooked. I've got my eyes peeled for a cabinet on which to place the TV and DVD player, but it has to be high enough to be out of reach from little hands (we are also toying with the idea of wall-mounting the TV).
