From boring to beautiful

When we first moved into this house I loved the tall ceiling’s in our family room,

but I envisioned something more for this room.

I have a love affair with molding and coffered ceilings.

We had the perfect room for both.

After a lot of convincing, my husband said yes 🙂

This is what the room looked like before we started.

(Sorry for the picture quality, these were all before I got my nicer camera)

Yes, those are paint samples on the wall.

(At least one room in the house seems to have some at all times).

I may have a problem!

I had a really hard time decorating this room.

It seemed like no matter how big of pieces I used it still seemed so tall and bare.

Excuse the wood in the corner,

these pics were taken right before we got started.

I was lucky enough to have my talented neighbor do the job.

I showed him pictures of what I wanted for each part of the room

and he made my dreams a reality.

He’s seriously so talented.

First he drew the design on the ceiling.

Then he started building.

This ceiling is solid!

A lot of times for a coffered ceiling they will just use blocks

where my solid piece is laying flat against the ceiling.

Not on this one!

This baby is never coming down!
