Part Time into Full Time Bungalow Remodeling Living Room

Here is part two on converting a part time residence to a full time residence.   A little back ground most if not all of the original Bungalows at the Jersey Shore where finished off with knotty pine wall paneling.  I am not sure why it is so prevalent here at the shore...however, if you know the answer please do share.

This is how the living area looked when we first moved into the house....we purchased it full furnished..
Walls are in good shape
Fire place needs some work

built in table against wall

Coastal Living Magazine
If you click on the link above for Coastal Living Magazine you will see a featured house very similar ....It took a lot of convincing to paint these treasured walls....the fore fathers would be very upset...With two coasts of primer/sealer and two coats of paint we finally have beautiful bright walls.

We added some over head lighting

New Drapes - blinds will be installed after new windows

It was a lot of work....but I think it was worth it...
