Here's some photos of how crazy my house looks right now, but I still think it looks better than it did when we moved in (haha!) I'm living on the subfloor until the wood goes in this week, which feels... dusty! but i am so GLAD the carpeting is out, and we opened up that wall which makes the place feel totally different.
I am still on the fence between whether I should put the couch under that cutout, and the stools on the inside, so they're in the kitchen facing out at the TV. Or if I should float the couch up a few feet, and put the stools on the outside of that wall and add some lights on top. What do you guys think?
