Happy Monday! I'm off today, yeah! I came across a couple of great blogs this weekend and so I have decided to participate in a fun blog event. Each Monday the blog "Between Naps on the Porch" will be hosting Metamorphosis Monday. All you have to do to play along is post a before and after shot of a project you have taken on. I've decided to share the before/after of our bar, the before were colors chosen by the previous home owner. When my husband bought the house he purchased some art that would work with the colors. However, once I came into the picture I quickly suggested, OK, insisted that we put our own touches to it. I think we did pretty good, we replaced the cabinet doors with custom made doors. My DH took one of the doors off and built a wine bottle holder. My dad installed the HD Laminate counter and I did the faux treatment. The one thing that I need to change is the color of the ceiling, it is too white and stands out entirely too much. Also, the trim at the base of the bar is tiny, and we are slowly replacing it with a taller baseboard just haven't made it to the living room yet. You can see I painted the bottom of the small wall to the right of the bar to check the color. We still have to paint the entire livingroom so the color will change from the taupe like color you see. If you want to see the links to those participating click here. And if you want to learn even more and want to participate then click on the butterly pic on the left sidebar. You are sure to see some great before/after shots. As always you can click on photos to see them in a larger size. Ciao for now.
