« Part 2: Sheetrock up and taped Part 3 of Remodeling a family cottage series Part 4: Window casings and LED lighting »

My painter arrived yesterday and from the two days she’s gotten the ceiling and walls primed and the ceiling painted.

The ceiling is called ‘bright white flat’ and the walls will be a Benjamin Moore color called ‘atrium white’. I’ve always liked that color as it is very subtly tinted and just seems to bring out the look of natural oak. All walls are the same color.


. I know you see the remodeling shows on TV that paint in all manner of color with some walls different colors in the same room sometimes. Heck…. why not stripes? They do it. My idea of wall color is that the wood, furniture, rugs, and wall hangings are the decoration and color that go on the wall as pallet. I think of the wall as a pallet that needs color. But it’s these things that supply it. The walls shouldn’t be decorations in themselves. Well enough of personal philosophy. BTW, the painter is my sister. She’s a good painter with lots of experience and is extremely meticulous. She does nice work.
. While she was busy with that I move to the shop and began making the wood trim that would go under the long header beam put up when I took the bearing wall down. It will be faced underneath with red oak that has an ogee edge.
. The edge is built up with another ogee glued to the top of the first. This will serve multiple purposes. One to give a sort of mantle look to the wood. Another is to better match the woodwork going on the windows. Another is to provide a track (behind the top ogee) for the track LED lighting.

. I have three 16 foot spools of RGB lighting strips. These will be placed in the space between the beam and ogee molding. The strips will be connected to a power supply via a control module. An RF remote will control the color, brightness and other effects. The lights have a 3m sticky back and will be on both sides of the beam, full length. After the painting is done I’ll be installing this and also the casings for the windows

Well we differ philosophically but I’m still amazed by how everything is turning out. Pure genius. I can’t wait to see that backlit molding. It will probably make me swear off all these colored walls.

the walls and celling is painted in a nice way. the setting of the lounge is also attractive. Moreover, the Zodiac casino free spins offer is the plus point in getting that oak in proper shape. The changing of color of the light strip with RF wireless system i a real genius.
