So as you know, I have been on a mission to create the home I love.
When I first started this little Renovation project, I knew I wanted to accomplish one thing.... a lighter brighter airier feel to our home.
I also didn't want to spend a lot of money...
It all started with changing the island, which had a domino effect.. it turned out so good...that the cabinets needed to be done... I did the cabinets and they turned out so good... the walls needed to be done,then the windows and doors...and so on and so forth!
So when I painted the walls a lighter color, I left the ceiling the original darker taupe color. I liked the contrast, but I felt like it needed a transition piece.
Something to define and separate....or "lift and separate" if you will!
So I went to Lowes and purchased some pvc type chair rail that was very thin and already white. I had the intentions of painting them, but when I put one up, it looked so good I decided to leave it as is... good thing too, cause I was so not in the mood to paint....again.
Note: they were also only $2.46 per 8ft piece...score!
It really is the smallest details they make the biggest difference. Sure it looked good/fine the way it was, but it looks so much more complete now... I absolutely love it.
I feel like it gives a crown molding effect but maintains the more modern minimalist look... I've been trying to create a more modern/french/transitional look.
I need to redo the entry way to our master...
and then the master...
I swear it never ever ends...
Here is a before and after, just a subtle but much needed difference and for only $40,
I say it was well worth it. It was very simple too, I did it all by my lonesome.
That's right, just me, my ladder, hammer and some nails = one evening!
Well that's it for now! We're movin' on...
