{before & after: breaking down the cage}

Ok, so I’m kinda doing things a little backwards here but remember how I mentioned in another before & after post how my recent home projects were motivated by the completion of a bigger project? Well this is it. It was a long time coming. Ever since I moved into my place I’ve hated these metal screens that close in my sleeping area. I felt like a caged animal and not to mention all the dust they collected. I’m pretty sure they were a DIY project from the first owners. Bless them and their DIY little hearts but those cages needed to come down. 

I had a few different ideas but they just seemed complicated so I decided to keep it really simple and do an impactful large chevron pattern with beautiful and naturally multi-coloured clear cedar. And voila!!! Thanks to an amazing contractor who brought my vision to life I couldn’t be more happier. For the first week I couldn’t even stop staring. It just completely changed the space..I can’t believe I didn’t do it sooner.  

Isn’t it great!? So that wraps up the before & afters from my own place – for now 🙂 I hope they provided some inspiration for you to take a another look at your space or finally get to a project on your ‘to do’ list.
