Sometimes Older buildings can be a bit challenging when you want to update the space. You have to deal with things such as: old wallpaper, old carpet, dated ceilings, old OAK doors and casings, SCARY!
Old lights, outdated light switches...the works!!!
This space was no exception. I even had to deal with doorways without doors and a door in the wall that didn't lead . . . anywhere??? But with a little paint, wood, sheet rock, and a little magic the space turned out really nice! It's always so exciting to compare the before and after pictures.
but here a few more of the space
And just for FUN a in-between pictures!
The back wall I used my famous trick of having the tape & texture guy mud/smooth the wall VERY flat so it appears to look like a 1/4 inch MDF board. This way it saves time and material cost of getting flat boards.
Boards are MDF primed pressed wood.
Crown molding is stacked with a baseboard as the lower piece and the top piece is crown. Here are some picture of the two pieces that I choose.
Now onto the next one :)
Currently, I am starting a full kitchen remodel.
From oak everywhere to fresh neutrals and WHITE!
We have a great team working on this project. One of my favorite cabinet shops, and a great contractor and painter are all on board.
It will be fun to collaborate while updating this house
We are planning on changing all the oak baseboards, casing and doors throughout the house and adding white trim work everywhere!
It will take a few months, I'll keep you posted!
