Since we were able to keep the bead board wall on the West end, we had to find a way to finish the corners where it met the sheet rock. We decided to go with lattice strips to create a smooth corner. Once they were caulked and painted, they made the transition seamless!
I chose "Still Water" by Sherwin Williams for the walls. I knew this was a risky move, but I wanted to take the chance! And I'm so glad I did. This big room, full of light and white trim, needed a dark color to add a little drama!
We were able to use the original light fixture in the dining room and we ordered a brass colored ceiling fan for the living room. (Can you tell how impatient my husband was about hanging our TV?!)
