WHOA! It was well beyond time to brighten up this dated, dark living room. We started by removing all that dark wood paneling and replacing it with drywall – GREAT START! All our drywall finishing was completed by Tom Schlachter of T.S. Drywall Finishing – Montpelier (419-485-4683); he is very meticulous and highly recommended. Next, we removed the old air conditioning unit from the wall and installed a nice replacement window – vinyl exterior trim and solid pine interior trim. All the old dark electrical outlets/switches were replaced with new white outlets/switches, and new white casing and baseboard trim was installed all around. Finally, we restructured the fireplace with a fresh partial wall and new white mantel. The homeowner applied a special textured brick paint to the old 70s brick facade. The difference is stark! Give me a shout if I can brighten up a space in your home: 419-212-3200.
