• Keith’s Living Room Makeover – Barnwood Wall

    Hi! We made a little more progress over at our friend Keith’s place, so I thought I’d share a little bit about that here today. If you’re just tuning in, here’s Keith’s “before” photo…


    …and here’s the inspiration picture I put together for him a while back…


    …and here’s where we’re at right now:

    We’ve still got one barnwood plank to attach (right above the mantel), but in a nutshell, Kevin and Keith used our nail gun to secure each board to the studs behind the drywall there.

    I told you that we stained the wood with watered-down Amsterdam-colored stain the other day, but I also wanted to mention that we decided to give them even more dimension by brushing on a quick coat of Behr’s “Atlantic” colored semi-transparent stain the day the guys tacked them up:

    Now they really look almost just like the ones in my inspiration photo! :-)

    I look forward to sharing another update as soon as we’ve got that last board up and all the bookcase trim and crown molding in place! :-D
