Piano Studio Room Remodel

Paul & I bought a house.  How exciting!

Most of the house has been beautifully updated.  However, we did want to do some updating ourselves to the family room  downstairs, which is going to be my piano studio room.

The walls have paneling.

And those light fixtures are straight out of the seventies.

It is a nice, large room for my studio, though!

Love the fireplace.  The tile flooring is nice, too.  Lots of potential.

The doors lead to this patio which is under the deck.

This weekend, my mom and sister (plus her two boys) drove down to help us paint the room.  Here is a photo of the room with a coat of primer and the trim painting white.

Notice my new light fixtures?  And the three paint samples on the wall?  We decided to go with the top paint sample. We ended up removing the mantelpiece over the fireplace.  The wall around the fireplace will be painted blue to create an accent wall.

Here is a photo of the room with a coat of the light gray on the walls.  It’s coming together!

My sister and I, proud of our handiwork!  The paint job and the new light fixtures really brighten up the room.  Can’t wait to get my piano in here.

Later, I’ll try to share photos of the rest of the house.
