So for the past few weeks we've been bouncing back & forth from our new house & the ranch. I've been painting, wiring, replacing light fixtures & tearing stuff down. Here are some before & after pictures. Let me know if you have any cool ideas for stuff.
There was way too many variations of wood grain in our great room. So I had my husband stain the fireplace wall white. I think it really enhances the fireplace & adds some good contrast to the room.
We had to bring the banisters up to code before we closed, lenders requirements. Which was fine because we would have done it anyway. We decided to just make it a wall. It made a spot for my piano & also will cut down on noise from the basement. We are installing LED lights along the stairway for the dark hours. They are light sensitive & will automatically illuminated once it gets dark.
I'll post more before & afters as we move along.
