So simple! So this weekend I spent the entire time working on living room projects. I spend a lot of time in there; it's seen frequently by guests; I've already put in a lot of hard work. So here's a summary of projects completed:
FRONT DOOR FROSTING
No, not like a cake. Since the tv purchase usurped my frontdoor budget, I've realized I might need to spend a little more time with "the Frenchies" than I had hoped or originally planned. It's always bugged me that my living room feels like a fish bowl with the clear glass. So I decided to frost the glass myself:
OF COURSE, THEN YOU NOTICE...
...then you notice the horrible plastic trim around the door. I've learned that 90% of the time, trim is contractor code for "covered up screw up." This fell under the 90%:
BEAM PAINTING, WALL PAINTING
Obviously I needed to paint some of the beams and posts around the door. Most of the beams and posts in my house were done in glossy off-white. I never liked it but I didn't realize how bad it looked until I repainted a section in the same crisp flat white enamel as the ceilings, which, btw, are now also complete in the living room. Here are some final living rooms pics:
