We’ve been really enjoying our Texas spring; we have to, because the Texas summer is next. In between the beautiful weather, we have been working on the family room. I wanted to share some of our progress.
Here’s the original.
Then, I painted the paneling Benjamin Moore AF-130 Truffle here.
Then I painted the fireplace here.
You would think it was all done, right?
No… we decided to do some renovations, like taking down that paneling I painted!?! Just look at what we found!
Scary! Then, we opened the door from the entry way. It looks like it should have been that way! So much more open and inviting!
We found a kitchen “butler window” in the process of taking down the paneling and drywall! Crazy!?!
We also took down the pillars in the kitchen… then the drywall was put into place!
It looked so open and airy! We decided with all that destruction, why replace the old, leaky sliding glass door, too!
It all came together nicely! I painted the walls Benjamin Moore Early Morning Mist 1528 and have plans to paint/stain/tint the wood beams and some day get reclaimed barn wood to put over them. The lighting needs to be addressed, too!! It’s progress. I also have my eye on a big map for the wall as well! I’ll keep you posted!
In the kitchen, I still want to get long drapes, art on the walls, and a new light fixture.
Progress comes in all shapes and sizes! It’s been really fun revealing our! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!
