I've been working hard on restyling my living room and dining room to reflect a hollywood regency style.
I've painted the living room, kitchen, dining room, and hallway with Sherwin Williams Mountain Air, it's a beautiful blue grey color
I also had crown molding installed. The hollywood regency look screamed for the elegance of crown molding. Since my ceilings are 8ft tall the molding is only 3 1/2 inches width. I worried crown molding would make the ceiling look lower, but it actually made it look higher. The cost for the living room, kitchen, dining room, and hallway was $750 all inclusive, supplies and labor. I thought it was a great price for the incredible impact it made.
I have removed every speck of pink from the room.
The cover on the dining room bench has been replaced
The chairs have been reupholstered
Along with the valance in the kitchen
I could not find any fabric that I liked in my budget and then....Yea, I found a king sheet set at Tuesday Morning for $45 which saved me a ton of money and provided a ton of fabric
I recovered the ottoman in white denim
Oh yea...I found the perfect rug...I will tell you that story in another post
I moved the TV to the entrance wall so it would not be immediately visible when you enter the house. After a long hunt for a TV stand, in the end I repurposed the hall table by painting it white and trimming it with silver. I pulled out the drawer and inserted the DVR
To cover the flowered wallpaper on the back of the china cabinet I used the same fabric and method I used on the headboard in my bedroom. Fabric, foam board, and double stick tape.....You can read the tutorial HERE
I'll be back with more projects and the final reveal...Right now I'm removing 3 layers of fabric from my bar stools...yuk.
Oh yes, this had been a much bigger project than I had originally anticipated, I'm excited to show you the final results....Oh I'm loving it!
