Renovation Update

The popcorn ceiling is gone and boy what a difference it makes. Primer is now being applied to all surfaces in preparation for paint. I'm in love with the bright and airy look of white walls and wood trim ... I also love color but have decided to paint the walls white and add color with furnishings and accessories.  It's a gamble if we will really like white walls; we can always re-paint it. 

 This house has wonderful, large picture windows. I love the view from the dining room.  The two large picture windows not only let in light but also provide a nice backdrop of mature trees.

 The real-wood paneling in the family room is being painted but we are keeping the wood beams covered in order to maintain the wood look on the beams. We can paint the wood beams to match later on if we don't like it.

 Eeeks! The 1970's stone fireplace is getting primer before it is painted SW Alabaster white. I can't wait to see if the fireplace looks good with a fresh coat of paint. If it doesn't look good, we'll need to replace the stone which is costly. We need to save wherever we are able.
