When you have a dark, dated den, the only real solution is to lighten, brighten and update!

Six months ago, Neil and Whitney Christopher moved into this forty-year-old home with their children, Landry and Eliza.

Now, they’re ready for a more modern and inviting den.

We’ve masked off all the wood panels before painting.

The Projects

Paint Ceiling

The first big chore toward brightening up this den? Painting the ceiling.

Neil gets familiar with the paint roller.

Spray All Walls, Shelves and Bookcases

Neil and Whitney work into the evening and get two coats of paint on the walls.

The next morning, Neil starts on coat number 3.

We also paint the bookcases and shelves.
