Finished the front room!

I took a short video in the hopes that you can see the colors and layout better that way.

Finished front room from Funder on Vimeo.

Now, even though I just said it's finished, here's what's not finished: some of the switch plate covers are fancy wood guys, so I'm priming and painting them. I haven't put up the crown molding, and the ceiling could use a second coat of paint before I do. And the front door is the "original" white, not the white I'm using - but it needs some drips sanded off. I'll do that when it's warmer and I can leave the door open while it dries, maybe replace the weatherstripping at the same time.

I took a lot of pics as I worked, so I'll write up something on molding and something on painting next.

Next project: install the hardwood in the hall. I'm going to lay the underlayment and get it dry-fitted over the weekend, then rent the nailer Monday.


  1. ooooh, that yellow is very cheery!

  2. Very nice!

    I like yellow as well. I always wanted to do an entry in a nice yellow like this with sunflower border.

  3. Somehow I missed this blog! Cheery living room, love the beadboard (?) and crazy about the stone fireplace.

    My house is that same shade of yellow, with white trim. :)

  4. That looks really nice with the chair rail. I am more of a green girl myself (not literally... If I had sallow green skin all the time, I would not allow myself out in public) because I have had a yellow room since I was six years old. If I think of painting another room yellow, I may throw up. But it looks lovely in your home! :)
