Our living room redo - part II

 

For those of you who are interested in our living room redo, today’s post gives an update of it. In case you missed my earlier post, please click HERE.

The previous days, all required electricity and plumbing works were finished. Next week we will start to treat the parket floor to give it an aged and greyed look.

In the meantime my husband and our team of employees were really working hard on the manufacturing and assembly of the paneling in our workshop.

The construction of an 18th century French styled paneling is a huge and extensive work from start to finish!

After sorting out the wood carefully, we have to prepare the oak wood trunks into different parts with the required length and width.

Every part of the paneling is precisely noted down on the technical plans of the paneled room.

 

I posted a few of my favorite pictures of ‘the making of’. Enjoy!

One of the most delicate jobs is to find the right patina to bring on the natural oak paneling.  A lot of color samples will be made by mixing different ingredients and will be treated by the hands of the artist.

LEF 16The artist-painter is trying to find the patina that we have in mind! We would love to give the paneling a very aged look. Finally the painter will bring on the patina after the paneling is assembled in our house.

 

Yesterday our employees started to build up the paneling in our workshop.

Here is a sneak peek !

By the end of next week I will show you the complete montage of the paneling in our workshop.

I hope you enjoyed this post about the progress of our living room redo.

To be continued…

    Fijn weekend! Lieve groet, Ingrid

  5. How beautiful this will be, Greet. Because of you (& Lene) I've fallen in love with your decor concepts. I would be so happy to redo a couple of our rooms and take out all the color and replace it with this kind of beauty. Sending love....

  6. The stewardship of trees is much like that of livestock.

    All I see with the rough trees, sliced & awaiting, are rings of years, xylem/phloem able to do things with liquids even rocket scientists, still to this day, cannot do.

    These trees have a good end, and a long life in death.

    I can smell your wood from here.

    Bittersweet yet a happy story.

    Garden & Be Well, XO Tara

  10. Greet that is so increadible to see, they look beautiful and I love the wood natural without anynpaint already and can't wait to see the patina you will choose!
    One think I am not sure I understand... Did you just build your home or was that your sister's? I guess this wouldn't be a new house that you are already renovating(:

  11. I just adore the look! I especially treasured the photo of the aging process. I live in a modest house in the United States that is not grand enough for paneling. However, I am so enamored with the look and feel of the Belgian wood finish. I would love to refinish some of my wood furniture to have the dreamy grey/limed/aged look; but I don't know how to do it. I have searched and "Googled" it many times, and never found any tutorials or instructions. I was wondering if you might be willing to share any information on how to achieve the look I cherish.

    Best wishes,
    Lisa
