Cottage Makeover: Interior Paint and Finish Work

February 28, 2015 | By | Comments (14)

Welcome back! Bad weather has slowed progress on the exterior of the house. However, things are shaping up inside. Electrical, plumbing and painting work are basically finished.

And the wood floors have been refinished and sealed.

Looking from the main living room into the den, you can see how dramatic the barn wood accent wall is.

Same goes for the tile wall in the bathroom shower. I love how the light bounces off the dimensional tile to create shadows and highlights. Here, we are just waiting for the floor-to-ceiling glass shower wall and the mirror that covers the wall above the vanity. Eventually we will be installing an indoor waterfall in this room, we both really love the idea of that ambient water sound.

In the kitchen, we still haven’t gotten as many appliances installed as I would have liked.

But the rest of the granite counters and backsplash are in.

And details like the built-in wine rack above the doorway and the bar area are taking shape.

Elsewhere, other details are going in nicely, too, such as the built-in shelves inside the laundry closet. Switching from the old hot water tank to a new, tankless unit freed up a lot of useful space!

So, there you have it. Plenty of transformations! Check back on Tuesday to see if we can beat the heat and get the new A/C unit installed (among other things!). —Daniel Keeley

    Daniel, I really like the warm walls with the wood. That makes the house look warm and inviting. My house needs new flooring, and I have been looking for ideas. After seeing this, I am going to seriously consider a similar look.

    Even though this was months ago and probably finished, what you have here seems to be shaping beautifully! That barn wood is very inviting and soothing. Makes me feel I am at home and have been living there for years. The paint plays off of it very well.

    I will have to find the final design! Everything so far seems beautiful.

    LOVE the sconces on the barn wood wall!! Quick question… re: that wall. What was the design idea behind having three distinct sections on at wall, rather than the traditional stacking at different lengths (like a wood floor)? Any insight is appreciated! SMK

    would like to know how the tankless water heater works out & if it’s energy efficient.

    I love everything about this project from the size, materials chosen, colors, reuse of materials. Just a wonderful project in the spirit of quality over quantity. Kudos!

    I love the house. I hope you’ll also share with us how it looks when it’s completed on the inside and how you decorate on the inside.
