    That said, I'm having a hard time seeing where your decorating is going. It seems to be all over the place. Maybe finding a unifying theme to tie all the renovations together would be a great idea. Unless of course this renovation is incredibly personal.

    Basically excellent foundational ideas and creativity, the polishing (bringing everything together) can use a little work.
    Its personalized at this point. Didnt plan on selling after only 2.5 years.

    And motion sensor works awesome mounted right inside door facing down. This keeps it from picking up movement outside of room. Set to stay on for 5 minutes after motion stops.

    Next project, remove old pantry and move fridge so entrance from computer room has an open view. Also opens up back of kitchen better so it appears bigger

    Almost done with tape and bed. Slow process for me due to dry time. Between work, life, kids i ak not always able to come back for another coats after it dries. First coat takes longest. This is third coat. Will do a final fourth right before i texture it. Last 2 coats dry within an hour as they are usually pretty thin and minor touch up coats. Usually last coat i spray texture before it even dries fully. Adding another layer of sheetrock to ceiling to avoid having to float and retexture cieling. Cielings are a pain in the ass, i dont have the good professional cieling tools. Easier to just add another layer and handle couple tapered seems.

    Tape and bed done and painted. Ceilings and install cabinet next. Redoing entire ceiling. Current one is a disaster from the previous owner. He had no business using a crows foot with his lack of experience. Gonna just put sheetrock ontop of the current sheetrock and texture it like the walls.
