After: living room

Kersten - January 30, 2008

The living room got the usual treatment: floor, paint, trim, etc. As with the rest of the house, the “before” smell was “cat.”



The paint is Benjamin Moore Aura “Orange Parrot” and took three coats for full coverage. The window covering is the same system we have in the kitchen (where I would recommend it for the narrower width), but I’m not too pleased with it in the living room — the window’s width is too large for the sliding tracks. The hanging panels already look worn and stretched out, which especially bums me out because I an entire night fiddling with those things.

It is so, so apparent that we have way too much furniture for this place. Otherwise, the flooring runs the direction it does because of a bowing, rolling, rollicking subfloor that we didn’t have the heart or the need to correct in the non-tiled rooms.

That is the book case (the other side of the large kitchen cabinet and former walk-through), and this is why it’s not finished yet:

The bookcase isn’t attached to anything as of yet, and we’re hoping to add some finishing pieces that hide the gaps between the case and the wall. I have to work pretty much every Saturday in February, so I’m hoping the remodeling elf known as Tai gets around to this tedious task one of those days.

The other major task left in the living room is the question of the fireplace facade.

One of our friends said she didn’t mention it during a recent visit because she wasn’t sure if it was a new type of art installation. Yes, we call it “Stumped/Stalled/Lazy.” We currently are using our TV cart to hide the artwork.


  1. I love the orange. So vibrant!

    I wonder if an extra panel or two might help your feelings about the window coverings in the living room. Stylistically, they good great. Of course, if an overhaul is in order, I’m sure you could find some lovely draperies.
    Perhaps a little molding around the edges of the bookcase would make it appear more built-in?

    It looks great. You should be proud.

  2. Alyce,

    Thanks for the nice comments. Molding around the edges is totally planned for the bookcase. I mostly just ran out of steam to finish the job. It is on my agenda for the next couple of weekends. What is going to make it difficult is that the walls are so out of level, that I’m going to have to do a lot of scribing on the molding, which makes my head hurt to think about.

  3. This ranking is based on reviews submitted by readers are their own this series were
    calculated. How far can a lineage work or
    restrain one’s living and the good size for my dollhouse. After a period of time, people’s taste will change naturally and they will not like to eat greasy food.
