Updating older dark paneled house
We found out from the neighbors that about 2 years ago, the new concrete siding was put on this house, as well as a new roof. My dad worked on getting some shingles up on the little roof over the backdoor, so that is coming along too.
When that was done, apparently, they didn’t replace the gutters and it has been gutter-less all this time. It will be awhile before he finishes trimming it out completely and I’ll wait a bit before painting it all white, but one day it will really be cute. Back in the kitchen, it is finally time to tear out the last wall of base cabinets that houses the sink.
Men sometimes have a really hard time painting wood, but this is just a wood facsimile and deserves to be painted. If you have REAL wood paneling, that’s a different story, so you’ll have to duke it out with the man at your house.
(Seriously, seriously lovely.) And you can use paneling to create vastly different moods.
I’m down to the last big room to be painted and that is the den. I have never been a fan of wood paneling and vowed if I ever inherited a house that had it, it would be painted in no time flat. This paneling is actually made of real wood (thin for sure), but I don’t have a problem covering it up. It’s a drop ceiling, not my fave, but underneath is ugly ductwork and pipes and so I can’t just take down the ceiling.
The old cabinets were so rickety and unstable and I’m so happy I didn’t try to keep them. That’s going to be a big job and we are tackling that ourselves.
Because look what was behind just this row of cabinets. Bought an angled floor nailer from Floor and Décor and we are ready to start nailing now.
He added some trim to the ends too and has a little more trimming out to do and then it will be ready to paint. We left it as long as we could and now it’s time to rip it out.
