Den Redo...


Here are pictures of our den re-do. We ripped out all the old trim and replaced with new, painted over the ugly paneling, repainted the ceiling, installed new carpet, and built-up the mantle around the wood stove. We did all the work ourselves, with a little help from friends to hang the crown and install the carpet.

We still need to do some touch-ups, get a new entertainment center, and put our pictures/nautical stuff back up. But I'm too excited to wait and post pictures when it's completely done.

The wall colors are Panda White (pretty much a light beige) from Sherwin Williams -color matched with Behr paint - and Sandstone Cliff by Behr (medium taupe). The trim is done in Bright White.

The carpet we installed is a Shaw frieze in Pearl.

We decided to have the chair rail higher to blend with the mantle, which breaks up the room. My husband used the same moulding on the edge of the mantle to tie it in the with chair rail. I think it looks fab-o.

I'm going to make cornice boards covered in a nautical tapestry for the windows, and use wood blinds instead of the panel curtains. The sliding glass doors will have panel curtains, with rope and cleats as tie backs. Hopefully this weekend I'll get everything done, and will post more pictures of the final room. I can't wait until this is done...8 days straight of working on this has me TIRED of paint and pizza for dinner.

Thanks y'all! We finally bought the ceiling fan last night, and hopefully we'll get the entertainment center today so we can be DONE with this project before Super Bowl.

zmurphy: Don't even get me started on those speakers! I just don't understand WHY we need those monstrocity speakers, plus the other 6 of them in a 15'x20' room. What good is having all that power, when you can only turn up the volume so loud before the wifey starts to b!tch about the noise?

Har-har, don't get me started.


I'm still working on the door, it's an old split door and we wanted to save it, so I spent most of the weekend sanding and priming it (we are painting it white). Hubby decided - after I put on 4 coats of primer - that we should have left it natural.

I should have the door and cornice boards finished up this week, then I'll post pictures again. He's moved the furniture (again) so hopefully we can call this project complete and move on to the next thing. Like the leaking toilet. Or the bathroom fixture that sprays water everywhere.

Thanks Andy. Eventually (years from now) we are going to gut the entire room and put up insulation and sheetrock. But I was so tired of the dark and gloomy look that we just did cosmetic changes for now. Thank goodness the painted paneling came out okay, it looks a lot better than what my husband thought it would.

Here are some current pictures with everything done and up. I had to make new curtain panels because hubby didn't like the sage green ones - made the room too dark. I made couch pillows to match the cornice boards (which I also made), and used boat cleats to hold the nautical rope tiebacks. Some of the pictures don't show the beige curtains because I was VERY slow in getting them done. Oh, and the door is now white.
