Here it is before we put in the window seat (photos and details on that here.)
|Bay window interior before.|
And here it is now -
|Trimmed out but unpainted. The longer top moulding will accommodate|
the curtain rod. The walls are cement board and harder to nail into.
A couple of close-ups...
|Ceiling before. The original ceiling is actually the porch ceiling.|
|Ceiling after. Dan had a couple scraps of drywall for the alcove ceiling.|
|He used the same moulding for finishing both the seat & ceiling.|
|The interior angles were a bit tricky. Dan finally came|
up with a pillar look made from chair rail moulding.
|All trim in place|
The next steps will be to fill any cracks with painters putty and then paint. Once that's done I can put up a window treatment and we can get our living room back in order!
Hopefully we'll get clear weather for outside work next. If not, we'll resume working on the front porch. As much as I'd rather be planting, it will be nice to get that part of the house done too.
Front porch progress continued here.
