Welcome to this week's Motivated Monday here at BeColorful.
With our remodeling project in high gear and real life priorities my blogging has taken a back seat and I will have to say it felt good to take a break. When it stops being fun is when I will move on but for now I still enjoy it and it has been fun for me to get your feedback as we move forward with our bedroom and bathroom projects.
This week I ordered the hardware for the master bath. I chose these pieces from Top Knobs because I felt they had enough detail to make them blend with the more traditional elements of our home but that their clean lines and simple design also gave them a bit of a contemporary edge.
The trim carpenter completed the crown moldings and began hanging the closet doors that will hopefully end up looking something like these.
He also began laying out the trim molding for the bedroom ceiling. This is one of those details that I wish I had been a bit clearer about in my own head and how I communicated it to our contractor. Instead we spoke in generalities with me saying I wanted a smaller molding on the ceiling that was about fifteen inches out from the wall and maybe we would add some angles on the corners.
I think I would have liked something like this...
or this ...
but the molding they delivered doesn't have a curved element like this so in the interest of not delaying this project any further we will just have to do 45 degree angle cuts for interest on the corners. It is impossible to stay on top of everything and in the scheme of things this is a small hiccup.
