Step 2 * Evaluate the box. Walls, ceiling and floor need to be addressed early on in a room design. I took up old carpet and laid wood flooring. I also textured and painted the walls. I wanted to tear the ceiling out and add a wood ceiling with beams and paint it white, but the budget did not allow for that. If you want to add any extra moldings ect. , this is the time .
I will also choose the rug and get it down, before bringing in the furniture. I got mine at Lowe's $300.00.
You will remember that "white" was one of my 5 words, but I did not paint the walls white. I do not have enough natural light for white walls, so the white had to come later. I painted my walls a cookie dough color and I am very happy with it.
* I have noticed that I am not getting the comments I usually get with a post. I may not continue with this recipe . . . the comments are how we bloggers judge how a post is being received. So if you are liking this type of post, let me know!
