Yesterday, the larger bedroom was returned to me. I spent the evening painting the ceiling, including the 'painted molding'. It's a perfectly good way to get a straight line when painting against a ceiling that is unlevel or textured. That bedroom is already a bright spring yellow.
The smaller bedroom is my office. I have a desk and one chair in there. The rug on the floor is a wheat color. I like the crisp green during the day.
And then there is the dining room. Yes, I probably went a little overboard with the staging, but I wanted to present it in all it's tiny glory. The table is only temporary. The dishes are not.
We've come a long way. I still want new furniture for the living room and bedroom. And of course I need houseplants. But I can honestly say, I love my house. Time to get to work so I can pay for it.
Very clever with the crown trim. What is the height of your baseboards?
You are very similar to Thomas Jefferson with your interests.
The baseboards are 6" from the floor with a 3/4' solid cap. I got rid of the basemold on top that was the original design. I think it looks a little more modern, and it was cheaper. :)
Thanks for the nice tour of the rooms. A lovely job of staging the dining room! The colors flow well from room to room and I really like the crisp white woodwork. You done good! :-D
I love the hardwood floors and that you kept things period true. Beautiful home.
I've been thinking of replacing all the doors with new slabs and hardware. But after finishing the dining room, I realized that I liked it a lot more than the newer doors I installed in the bathroom. So the idea now is to remove the doors and strip them completely. It takes about 12 hours per door based on the one I have done already. That's why I had chosen to buy new doors. But I still need to get new hardware and some filling will have to be done around the doorknobs. The old doors originally had a skeleton key lock and knob.
