We re-pointed the brick and then primed and painted it dark gray. We also painted the ugly brown paneling the same gray. The upper walls and shelving are light gray. The burnt orange indoor/outdoor carpet has been replaced with cork… gorgeous!  We absolutely love the whole room!
Here's what it looked like at Christmas.

Cork flooring we used. It's from Lumber Liquidators. Yes, we did it ourselves.

It is SUCH an improvement. It looks so much brighter in there and I love the floor. Goodbye, nasty carpet!
