First of all, I’m sorry for my lack of posting yesterday – I had finished writing the post when my internet connection collapsed. Apparently, there’s something wrong with our router & cable box, and we can’t have both the TV on or the Internet on at the same time. But we didn’t realize that until very late yesterday! And it’s still not fixed. Anyway, onto the post.
I’m so happy it’s Friday! We have a long weekend ahead of us and lots of things on our agenda. I’ve been working on some secret stuff lately, which I’ll finally be sharing next week, either on Monday or on Wednesday at the latest, I promise. But fret not, I have a great before & after today: we’ve already painted the board & batten treatment wall in the living room, and it looks great. Here are the “in progress” shots to refresh your memory:
Adding the boards:
With one coat of paint:
And the after!
We’re in love with it (is that weird?). It defines that part of the room (the dining nook) much better now, and it makes our small living room seem a tad bigger. Now, we still have to fix the crooked radiator issue, and there’s some touching up to do (part of the white paint seeped through the tape and what should be blue is now white, ugh), plus we want to add some art to that wall. And now I realize how awkwardly the lamp is hanging from the ceiling, because it’s not centered on top of the table, but I’m not so sure we can do anything about that (if we centered it on the table it would be way too close to the wall). Can you tell I can’t sit down for a minute? I always have to keep myself busy doing something. Anyway. We love the look. So much, in fact, that maybe we’ll continue it on other walls? We’ll see.
What do you guys think? Does it look nice? Should we do the same thing to the other walls in the living room and in the entrance? Have a great weekend everyone!
