Knock out those walls and create an open concept great room

I know, I know it’s not Christmas yet but this is one of the few pictures I have that shows most of the downstairs in one shot. One of our first projects (before my blogging days) we turned three small rooms (living, dining, family) into one large great room by knocking down a wall and creating a open concept great room. We now have a space that is 100% usable.

Inspire Me Monday #127

Welcome to Inspire Me Monday, thanks for being here.  Well, today the kids went back to school and this mama is sad.  I went from a house that was full of kids on a daily basis to complete silence with the hubby that is gone on business.  Although I have most likely been more productive in the last few hours then I have been all summer, I prefer the house full of kids.  I know, call me crazy but in all honesty I miss them.  Just like everything in life, it will just take some getting used to.  Well, enough about kids and summer, how about we get to all of the amazing projects from last week!
