Remember when I put together that inspiration photo-drawing of our living room in December?
And remember when we got “bones” in February?
Well, as of today, we’ve got planks on one side of the new partition wall too! 😀
(No crown yet because we’re having a hard time finding it.)
Here’s a pulled-back view from the same spot in the kitchen:
(Front door on the left, back door on the right.)
Here are a couple of more photos I took before the base molding and plinth blocks were installed:
(Ignore our still-almond switches & switch plate, and still-not-reupholstered dining chairs!)
(Still haven’t started working on that gallery wall above the sofa either!)
We’ll clad and trim out the other side of the wall in May. In the meantime, we’ll fill nail holes, and prime, and paint. (Simply White, like the other planked wall.) I’ll be thinking about adding (hardwired) sconces to the dining room side of the wall, too. Hey, might as well while the walls are still open, right?
Boy wouldn’t a pair of these Starfire Radial sconces sure be fun?! 😀
I thought these Fargo lights were gorgeous too:
I love the mix of black and galvanized metal, and that little cage on the bottom is such a neat touch!
I also like these galvanized lanterns I saw at Home Depot:
I think they were around $25 each, which is great.
The new side walls are four feet wide, so I’ll be thinking about which sconce is the right fit width-wise. And since they’ll be seen from the front a lot (vs. the side, like in the photos above) I’ll also be thinking about that view too.
Fun stuff to dream about, for sure!
