Makeover Update

I don't have a lot to share with you this week because painting is literally still going on. We are painting over real wood panels and it's difficult because of the bumps and knots in the wood as well as the paint keeps bleeding through, despite using the best tape and sealing it with the base color.

I don't have a wide angle lense, not a nice one anyways, so here is a fish eye shot of the room. It's better than the 3ds photos I took last time.

As you can see we still have to put up chair rail, new flooring, decor, lighting and furniture. It all looks a hot mess right now but all is coming along in due time, so come back and see updates! We also are making over the dining room and you can see the Madeline chairs we got for our dining table from Restoration Hardware. They are actually a creamier color in person, perhaps the lighting is off since I took the pics at night. I really like it because they are raw wood which is a really nice trend in design right now.

See you next week!

  4. I am so in love with the stripes!! And I almost got very similar chairs for my dining room- I love them!! I ended up going with something different because of price and a coupon I had at another place. But I looove that style so much!

  5. This looks amazing! So high-end and custom designed. AND it has your signature style. I am getting so excited to see the full reveal!!


  6. Thank you, Meredith! It's going to be several weeks, as we are working on the dining room, too.
