It’s been a long time since the last Project KC update but I’m bringing it back from the dead! It was all finished a couple months ago but I’m finally getting around to the posts! In case you missed them, catch up here:
I’ll be sharing final reveals of each space over the next couple weeks, but in the meantime, I’m recapping the dining room and entryway before and progress in this post.
The dining room got a big paint upgrade and the floors were stained darker, as with the rest of the wood in the hallways, bathroom and kitchen.
Here’s a look at the dining room before:
Red walls with an outdated sponge technique, boring beige on the lower third and orange-y flooring.
You can see the darker flooring in this photo, but it’s much more noticeable in additional photos later on in this post.Let the painting progress begin! My mom and I went through several options and chose a bluish grey for the top half and a brighter white for the bottom. The chair rail and ceiling, window and floor trim was left as is. The darker flooring really stands out here! This is it for the dining room (for now) but I can’t wait to show you the final ‘after’ photos! Such a drastic transformation, just from paint and stained flooring. Moving on to the hallway/entryway area. The floors were refinished and stained darker in here as well. This is the orange-y before: And after sneak peek! Another look at the entry before: floors stained, blue carpet replaced with a much better alternative, and I even convinced my mom to update the stairs. The orange-y look carried over here so we decided to do the white spindles and stain the railing to match the darker flooring: Far from finished here, but a peek at the improvement just from a couple spindles: I’ll be sharing a bunch of the ‘after’ photos in the next couple posts, so stay tuned!
