Florida Room Blue

We've been working on the Florida Room and the blue color looks very pretty with the white windows and the beadboard ceiling. There's a closeup shot of the ceiling below showing the framing near the wall and every four feet or so. It looks very "cottage-like" and the white and blue should look good with the Berber carpet.

Here's one of those "before" shots. I painted the buffet at the end of the room, and I'm going to paint the top tan (to match the sand colors in the room) and with new hardware, it's already looking much better. We found all SORTS of things in that cabinet from Tupperware to fireworks! That little rectangle black thing is a HOLE. We're rebuilding the drawer that goes in there. You can see the areas in the "after" shot where we will be installing molding around the windows (cove type) and behind the buffet. This room is where "old meets new" with the cement block and drywall. Molding~it's a beautiful thing. :-)

Ken installed a 3-way light (one light to face the laundry area [and that ugly water heater!], one to face the back door, and one to face the sitting area of the room). There is also a small ceiling fan for those Summer evenings while you read. Love the blue!

This week Ken worked on replacing the siding on the sides of the house where Ivan took a bite of a few sheets and did some work on the custom bartop.
