I’m finally done with the Room Full O’Knotty Pine, and I couldn’t be happier with the end result. Was it a big project? Yes. Was it worth it? Absolutely!
I plan on doing a follow-up on this project once my friend and her family are moved in and settled. I know that she will put her own stylish stamp on this house, and it will be quite the transformation when it’s all said and done.
First, a quick side by side before and after:
Even without furniture, it’s off to a great start, don’t you think? Ahhh, so light, fresh and clean! They’re also getting new windows in a few weeks, which will be an impact all on its own.
As a refresher, let’s see how far we’ve come, shall we?
And after – they tore out the scalloped trim that surrounded the center section of the built-ins, which was an instant improvement. (Please excuse the paint can – the center doors didn’t want to stay shut.)
Such a statement – I love that she chose black for the fireplace. A great contrast against the clean, crisp white.
I’m planning on writing a tutorial on this project once my head clears from all of the oil-based primer. It’s a totally doable DIY project, but you just need to be prepared to put in the time to prep properly and paint your heart out.
Have you tackled knotty pine or other paneling in your home?
