Project KC: Living Room Reveal

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:fsh1PTXlP1yY_UI2yKt1G-9DXlrqnRdjD0c_iuq4vd4Hixn1naSGqgbnXXow-37hsMoKcxguGOd-Bq0m_eiNzE
After the grass cloth was taken off the wall, before painting:kxg27t_inntnFB0NXibWbpJfnlprES0ChFDGrWvBUjAAfter the walls were painted, mantel painted black, wetbar removed and new furniture added. Blue carpet and orange beams/panels still sticking around:IMG_4521IMG_4537IMG_4519Latest renovation progress: carpet installation, beams darkened and paneling painted white: IMG_9010 IMG_9009And 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.   IMG_8997 IMG_8998 IMG_8999 IMG_9001 IMG_9002 IMG_9003 IMG_9004 IMG_9005Thanks 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.
