The piano room (aka the living room or front room) remodel is complete.
This is the least-used room in our house. Even still, the carpet was shot. The original paint was tired. The curtains were dusty and had never been cleaned. It needed to be updated, with new colors and better materials.
I chose the paint color (Temperate Taupe by Sherwin-Williams). The ceiling got painted white.
So, for $1000 of flooring and a few hundred in tools, paint, etc. we have an entirely new room.
I have the rest of the house to attack, in a similar manner, this winter and spring.
