Let There Be Light (and Paint and Floors)

The Coral Cottage sunroom housing the dining area and a seating area is what sold me the house.  To see the "Before" pictures and the beginnings of the restoration, please click here.  

After gutting, reinforcing the wall, adding HVAC, drywall and then priming (whew!) it was time to paint.  I had already bought some curtains to frame the windows from Tuesday Morning so Jane Coslick and I selected a color that would go with them.   

We used Sherwin-Williams 6483 called Buoyant Blue in an eggshell finish to improve durability:

It is very soft and almost serves as a neutral throughout the house--very beachy, very peaceful, very calming.

As you can see from the picture above the electrician came before we finished painting and hung my beloved coral chandelier that gave the house its name--see this post for details.  Then came flooring--Allure vinyl plank flooring in Oak.

All we need now are the furnishings!
