Ever heard the potato chip slogan
"Can't stop with just one..."?
That would be a great way to sum up my
"Can't stop with just one!"
As I mentioned before...
painting the family room, has turned into
painting the kitchen, breakfast room
and front hallway!
Added to this list is
making new pillows for the family room
as well as new drapes!
(See a trend?)
Family room has been painted, so
without further ado..
here's your sneak peek..
(see Zac on the couch?)
I hesitate to show you because the room is not "done" yet!
Wayne and I selected some wonderful fabric
for pillows and curtains to match
our new pewter wall color and
existing yellow couch and black furniture and chairs!
Once the room is complete
I will be posting the finished product!
onto our "almost" completed weekend project!
Walking into our front door, you would find
a large blank wall behind the steps.
The dining room is open to the entry on the left,
with the family room and kitchen to the rear
of the dining room.
(note this photo involved no staging... getting us as is)
At the opposite end of the hallway is my office
and a powder bath room.
(and Caribou's rear end.. whoops)
When I painted the family room,
I knew right away that the kitchen and breakfast room
would need painting...
One being now sliver and the other more brown/gold
I felt like I was living in a coin shop.
Because this hallway wall is the same color as the kitchen,
I now thought it was a great time for a change
for this wall too!
I decided to try and mimic the boxes on the columns
to create boxed trim.
We painted the upper part of the wall the
same creamy Hazelnut color in the rest of
the entry, to brighten the space.
On the bottom half we created box molding
using trim and chair rail and paint.
Wayne is wonderful at completing my crazy visions!
The finished product...
I'm so happy with the way it turned out!
We mimicked the same height as the trim on the columns.
It has brighten the whole entry and
added some visual texture and interest!
This front facing wall will be painted the grey pewter color.
Obviously, the next project on the list!
Oh boy, I see another project
This hallway now needs artwork!
