A quick before and after

When we bought our new house we knew there were a lot of changes we wanted to make.  Some big, some small.

There are many rooms left to tackle and I really wanted to share this whole process with y'all so here's the first quick before and after!

Isn't it amazing what a little pant can do? And a new door and ceiling work! Oh, and an excellent contractor!

(I'll take this time to apologize for the poor before picture.  I realized we hadn't taken any before pictures halfway through the remodel and was able to hop on the web site and get some from the realtors listing.)

We found out all of the windows in the house needed replaced so we seized the opportunity and decided to install french doors instead of windows along this wall.  It really opened up the view to the golf course and let a lot of light into the room.

The biggest design issue I've had with the house is the lack of character.  I really wanted to add a coffered ceiling to this space but the addition of the door meant there wasn't enough ceiling height.  We went with a low profile and I think it turned out great.

What do y'all think? Should we paint the boxes or leave them white?


  1. AH-MAZING! OMG are you sure that's the same room!?

  2. Look's beautiful I like the white I think I would leave it. Can't wait to see the rest of it, congratulations!

  3. I adore the ceiling accents - I may have to rethink my family room now. I whitewashed my brick wall/fireplace this summer and painted the dark paneling but after seeing your color palette may have to paint again.
