Entry Room Progress

We’ve begun our third year owning our project house. Let’s take a look back at the last two years and everything we’ve done complete with a done list. Here’s our entry room

What we’ve done so far:

  • Tore up the stained, torn carpet
  • Sanded the floor with hand sanders because we didn’t want to take off too much of the wood on our original to the house maple floor
  • Changed out all the outlets and replaced the covers with pretty copper ones
  • Changed out all the light switches and replaced the covers with pretty copper ones
  • Took down the ceiling fan and put up a light we got on sale (post here)
  • Ripped down the falling tile ceiling and drywalled a new ceiling in (post here)
  • Took down the lace curtains and put up other placeholder curtains (update since the picture below – I keep changing out the curtains in here for different ones hoping that something will just hit me and I’ll love it)
  • Painted the ceiling with basic Sherwin-Williams white ceiling paint (post here)
  • Repaired a lot of cracks in the plaster using lightweight spackle like this one
  • Painted the walls with Sherwin-Williams latte paint in Cashmere low luster finish
  • Put up some art that shows our hometown pride (this post)
  • Replaced the old wooden front door with an energy efficient insulated metal one

I’m feeling a little bit better about what we have done and what we still need to do now. I hope you’ll continue to come by and watch as we renovate and rejuvenate our house. Check out how all the rooms started out on my “Tour – From the Beginning” page.

    i live the colour of the wall it really compliments the rest of the room gives it a warm cosy glow

    • I completely love the color too! I still have a gallon and a half left and not much left to paint with it. I’m kinda thinking of painting a ceiling or two with it :)
