Renovating the living room

We wanted to refresh the room and brighten the color.

It was time to redo the living room.

Its a big room (34 x 14) so it took me about 10 days to get it done. A pro would work much faster but I think my workmanship might be better (really)? ┬áMore importantly, work has its own dignity; there’s frustration points but overall, I do enjoy working with my hands.

Pat wanted to brighten the room and she’s happy with the results….thank goodness. The original color was Benjamin Moore Natural Wicker and she went with Steamed Milk this time. She also used a brighter woodwork color called Snowfall White.

The house was built in 1953 and the walls are plaster so there was special treatment needed for the some of the repairs but I got it all sorted out; the results are quite satisfactory.
