Only 1 week into the “One Room Challenge” and I’m feeling stressed. Did I really commit to doing a kitchen renovation in 6 weeks? Ummm…yea…I did, how did that happen? Five paint samples in, and close to choosing a color for one of the islands. I originally wanted to paint the larger island blue, but after several attempts with some samples, I realized it wasn’t going to happen. It just didn’t look right…not to mention my husband hated it.

This post is about the magic of paint. If you have been following my blog, you know I am all about renovating and remodeling to update our home. Recently, we remodeled a fireplace surround in our family room. You can read about that project (HERE).
During our recent dining room renovation, one of the features we added to the room was a coffered ceiling. A coffered ceiling adds dimension and texture to a space and is a wonderful addition for high ceilings.

Molding or other decorative elements can also be added to the grid, depending on the look you are trying to achieve. Coffered ceilings are also commonly referred to as sunken ceilings.
If you’ve been following my blog, you know we are in the process of renovating our family room. We are restyling the room from an over the top (not sure what you call this) to a transitional style.
