This might be my favorite transformation for Project KC… the living room! This space has gone through two major renovations and I’m so pleased with how it turned out. It took a little arm twisting to convince my parents that the beam staining and painting the paneling white was a good idea, but they are both loving the end result (much to my relief).
Here’s a quick refresh of the space many, many years ago before any updates. Old furniture, grass cloth wallpaper on the walls, blue carpet, wetbar, orange beams and paneling:
After the grass cloth was taken off the wall, before painting:After the walls were painted, mantel painted black, wetbar removed and new furniture added. Blue carpet and orange beams/panels still sticking around:Latest renovation progress: carpet installation, beams darkened and paneling painted white: And finally, the big reveal! I’ve been dying to get this carpet out of here and the white paneling makes the room so much brighter and contemporary, and the darker ceiling beams are the perfect compliment to the refinished wood flooring throughout the rest of the first floor. Thanks for following along with Project KC! I have a fun new studio apartment tour coming up for you tomorrow, but the Project KC kitchen reveal will be up next week.
