I have a project update to show you today. Back in March, I shared how we had a professional builder put in the needed support beam in the house where we removed the wall and pocket door that divided the living and dining area so that we could create an open concept space for better visual flow and lake viewing.
In my last post about the project, I left you with this photo after Ed put sheetrock over the newly installed beam.
He completed the sheetrock and added crown molding to each side. With this done, it was my turn to take over and paint the beam and the living room that still had green walls.
You may remember this before photo. This is what the room looked like when we first looked at the house with the real estate agent. See the wall and doorway leading to the kitchen?
It is gone. Lots of changes have been made over the past 5 months. :-)
With the wall and pocket door removed, the beam done, the dark green wall color gone and…
….the fireplace wall totally transformed, the space is looking more to my liking and decorating style.
I still have a few details to take care of…like painting the ceiling fan white and getting white screen doors.
This week I am going to start painting the brown trim in the kitchen.
I also am in the process of patching the floor where the wall once was. I found oak planks that were a close match to the flooring. We fit them into the gap in the floor.
We need to sand them so they are level with the rest of the floor and then add a few coats of polyurethane. It is a patch and not going to be perfect. We will wait to redo the entire floor after we makeover the kitchen.
It feels good to have this project almost done. I will post about how I patched the floor soon and how we hung the swiveling wall mounted TV later this week.
Did you see my post on how I transformed the fireplace wall? If not, you can find it here. It is part of a Mantel Makeover Contest. If you have the time, I would love your vote. You can vote, HERE once a day until May 2oth. XO
