Pictures of my front room

As promised, here are some more pics of the house. For those of you who read this blog, you may remember that the before pics of this room included chinese wallpaper, smoke-stained walls, and nasty carpet. Dan did a great job finishing the floor, while we all slept outside in a tent to avoid the horrible fumes. Our neighbors are loving us.

Dan also did a great job doing the crown moulding. Being the novices we are, we mistakenly assumed that in the same bin would be the same size moulding. Oh no. So after we cut and painted it and started to hang it, we found out it was all different sizes. So Dan did a little maneuvering and wala! You can't even tell (unless you look close!)
The room still needs lots of finishing decorating touches, but all in all, I really love it. It is so nice to have a room that is done!

It looks so nice! You slept in a tent in this weather? or are you just late in posting?

It really looks awesome! I must say your lighthouse picture from Seattle is the perfect touch! What a beautiful job guys! Now I want to see some shots from Williamsburg and Atlantic City. How was your trip besides the crazy snow storm on the way through Baltimore?

It's beautiful Heather! I love the color you guys picked out... and so unique with the molding- it's perfect. I didn't realize how handy you two were! You seriously amaze me. Pregnant, husband in school, two kids, AND re-finishing a home. You're an inspiration!!

I would never have thought to paint the trim darker than the walls, but I love it! I think it is so dang cute. Don't you just love wood flooring?

LizzyP said...

I LOVE it, you guys! Maybe I could hire you to come and do our floors and crown moulding.
