We recently added another item to our to-do list for the downstairs – new baseboard moulding. This wasn’t really something we had planned to do but we accidentally found out that it will completely change the feel of the space. How did we happen upon this discovery? I’ll share the story.
Remember the closet project I was working on? Well, we ended up having to order moulding to trim out the bench. It finally arrived and I immediately took it out of the box so I could bask in its awesomeness. Then, I had to figure out where to put it until we were ready to cut it and add it to the bench. Our closets are currently packed to the rafters and our garage isn’t much better. Our dining room on the other hand is 100% empty except for 2 boxes that we haven’t unpacked yet, so I just went and plopped it down on the floor.
Just look at it:
Apologies for the iPhone quality photo but I was way too pumped to go grab my fancy schmancy new camera. What do you think? I think it amps up the space and makes it look sooooooo so so much better. Of course it would be great if we could also replace that tile floor but that’s one of those projects that’s a couple of years down the road.
I’m stoked about this project since it’s something so small that I think will make a huge impact. Once we wrap up the kitchen and the hall closet, hopefully we’ll get to start on this! Speaking of, I’m hoping the closet reveal is just right around the corner – we’re just waiting on our custom cushion now.
