before:

ceiling fan, brass trim and boring white tile around fireplace, cream colored carpet and *no personality*

(my little shadow…can ya guess where she gets her nickname?)

the carpet comes up, the hardwood goes down.

preparations begin for the coffered ceiling. i know…it looks weird at first, doesn’t it?

the ceiling is almost finished. we also installed a surround and wiring for a television above the fireplace.

a look towards the kitchen.

you can see the paint colors i was testing out.

the hole connecting the room to the kitchen…

getting there…

this is the only shot that you can actually see a little bit of the wood valance over the windows.

it’s pretty similar to the valance i had built for the nursery here

the paint going up.

after:

i really wish i would have taken more pictures of this room, but at the time, i wasn’t planning on posting these on a blog.  the house just happened to be clean and i figured i’d take some photos!

the color on the walls is 
brandon beige,

and the color on the ceiling is 
powell buff.

the moravian star fixture was purchased online.

we eventually replaced the tile around the surround with white subway tile, 
but i never got a picture.

the stain on the floors is the same throughout the main level:

provincial by minwax.


tomorrow:
before/after pictures of the dining room!
