Renovation Reality — 4 Comments

  1. Wow – I have so been there ! Good job though. Popcorn ceiling’s are horrible – ugh! Hmm, I’ll have to think about that furniture deal…I imagine that used furniture is just as scarce as rental properties in ND. You probably have to take what you can get. Personally, I’d have to give it some kind of paint treatment – either much lighter or much darker. The shape is unusual though. If you use a whitewash and it might look like it came from Elsa’s castle,…darken and distress (Resto style) and it may go all ‘Game of Thrones’ on you…

    • Hi Michelle, I can’t go dark because Alan has forbidden anything DARK in the basement. That’s why the new doors and cupboard are golden oak and the walls are a creamy color. And I think going white looks too “shabby chic” which is okay in some houses but this one is more of a “traditional” style. The furniture is very well made and sturdy. That’s why I snatched it up as soon as we went to look at it. I love challenges and I have several months to think about it!
