I absolutely love moulding! It just changes the look and feel of the rooms in my house. Over the years we've added it to most of the rooms and lately I'd been thinking a lot about beefing up the walls in our entry and staircase. So we decided to have chair rail and picture frame moulding installed.
We still have a long way to go, but so far I'm loving the results. I plan to paint the walls above the chair rail Revere Pewter(same as the L.R. and D.R.), by Benjamin Moore(matched to Glidden Paint) and the area below will be painted a creamy white.
As you know, one change leads to another! So we'll be saying goodbye to our old light fixture and replacing it with something simple.
We're also adding an electrical outlet, so I can finally add a lamp to the entry table. Lamps create such nice ambiance don't you think?!
I have plans to create a photo gallery along the stair wall; something I have wanted to do for a long time!
Our contractor friend is doing most of the work(I'm in charge of caulking-n-painting), but his schedule is quite full already, so it's been a bit of a challenge to find time to finish things up
and that makes patience even harder to practice.
So a few boring-before pictures to share with you today. Hopefully I'll have some progress pictures in a few!
