I love the teal! I probably wouldn't have chosen it personally without seeing it on the walls, but now I definitely would. I love dark colours on walls, as long as it's done tastefully and that.... you have definitely done.  Grin

I make cool stuff and do cool things, too bad I'm not cool...

Wow, you guys did such a fabulous job!  I have a deep appreciation for how much work went into it by the way.  My husband and I have flipped houses, the first of which was pretty much a rebuild of a 1921 California bungalow (hmm, I should post pictures of that!).  We did almost all the work on that flip ourselves, so I feel ya!  It always amazes us what we uncover when we start to take things apart on old homes.  I can't tell you how many times we've just turned to each other and said, "What the hell were they thinking?"   Cheesy

I love the teal color, and your Christmas decorations look so amazing in there!  But I have to ask: are you planning to get new dining room furniture now?  Your table and chairs now look too casual for the fabulousness that is the rest of the room.  I know grandpa made you new legs for the table; maybe the table would be okay painted and with different chairs?  (Ikea has cool black chairs for only $20 I think!)

Anyway, I don't mean to nitpick. It really is an amazing transformation.  You are right to be proud!

Freakin amazing! I feel like I just watched one of those HGTV re-design shows. I love the wall color and all the Christmas deco kinda tied in with it. Your shelf gives me hope that one day I too can make my own haha I've always wanted one but as you found as well, they're oh so pricey. Oh yeah, I love the chandelier above your table!! Did you make it?

Absolutely incredible. I had to laugh about the people just driving in nails in order to locate the studs. That's crazy!!!! I use my knuckles to knock... do people not do that anymore?  Undecided

The paint is gorgeous... Fate might not have cheap taste but it looks great.

I am so amused I can hardly stand it. That was spectacular. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up.

This looks soooo good! I love the colour choice and the shelving unit. Your house it gonna look great once you're all finished with it. Please please keep posting pics of all the rooms you re-do. Cheesy

I ain't here to break it...
