Amidst the Thanksgiving/Christmas craziness we've found bits of time to work on the breakfast room. I thought I'd share our progress so far.
First, just for fun, I'll show you a few shots of the room the day we moved in. Compared to the rest of the house, this room was the least ugly. But it was still pretty plain. And beige.
|Those curtains have been my nemesis since this spring when I finally got to take them down. |
I stomped on them.
|The previous owners really liked beige. Like, really liked it.|
|I have no idea why there is a hunter green patio set in the kitchen.|
P.S. Our kitchen still looks like that. :S Minus the hunter green.
|Random shot of Roary.|
Here's how the room is looking as of this morning:
|We installed a new 5-panel bifold door on the closet.|
|We primed and painted it Simply White.|
|We added a sparkly knob.|
|We patched, primed, and painted the walls Seagrass and the ceiling Simply White.|
We also added crown moulding (I knew I would get my way eventually).
We filled the nail holes, caulked, and painted the moulding, too.
|We added the extra piece of trim on the baseboards and primed and painted them Simply White.|
|We painted out all of the window trim in Simply White.|
|We also installed my favourite roller shades of all time. |
We also have these in our living room, dining room, and spare room.
I really do love them.
|Had to block the view of Alex's fire-engine red trailer in the backyard.|
|Here's the other window.|
|This shade blocks the view of the cars in the driveway. Sweet.|
There's still a bit of finishing work to do before we can start on the fun stuff like rugs, light fixtures, table/chair makeover, curtain rods, curtains, and accessories. But we're getting there. :)
