If you follow me on Instagram, then you may have seen a few of these but this post will give more detail for you and will allow me to document the process a little more for me and for them.
You will also note the difference in the lighting and quality of the next few photos. The first photo below is my iPhone photo taken at night and the two photos below were taken by the homeowner who is a really great photographer (bonus!).
The walls, wood panel ceiling, and all the trim are all getting painted (including all windows and doors). The room has a stone wall that you can see in the photo above that is a really nice feature that adds some natural texture. The floors are a pinky-beige ceramic tile that are being replaced by hardwood floors. The wood that was chosen will transition nicely with the wood that you see there that leads into the kitchen.
The photos above and below give you a good idea of the elements that are staying and what is going to be changed out. Like I mentioned above, the walls, ceiling, windows and doors are all getting painted. The leather recliner that you see above has been given the boot already and a new sofa with chaise is going to be replacing the sofa and chair that you see above.
The doors leading to the patio have been painted and we decided that it looked great (and much more open) without the grids so they are going.
Here is a progress photo of the new paint color and a preview of how GREAT the trim looks painted.
And just so you don't have to scroll up/down/up/down - here they are next to one another...AMAZING the difference already.
I had stopped over the other day to see the progress and I had to snap this one before I left...this is the view from the dining room into the family room - look at THAT!!! Looks so good and it's not even done yet. Not to mention the house has beautiful natural light throughout the day.
And how fun is their dining room chandy?
I hope you've enjoyed the progress and will post more updates soon.
I also had an EPIC thrifting/antiquing run the other day. I went to 2 new-to-me spots that did not disappoint and were filled with treasures - will post on that soon as well.
Have a Happy New Year!
