Today, I’m thrilled to share the reveal of our latest project: replacing a dated popcorn ceiling with cedar planks in our sitting room.  As you may recall, this sitting room has undergone quite the journey. It all started with a simple fireplace makeover when we first moved in, where we added a rustic beam mantel and a fresh coat of paint to breathe new life into the space.

A year or two later I decided to  do a full fireplace surround makeover, adding a bit more sophistication to the space.

But eventually the space just fell flat. So this year, with the addition of the DIY built-ins I was able to further elevate the room, adding, interest, functionality and style.

But the pièce de résistance of this room transformation is undoubtedly the new ceiling treatment:

Like can you even??? Out with the old popcorn ceiling and in with the rich tones of our new cedar planks, adding warmth and texture to this space.

This update not only modernizes the space but also creates a cozy atmosphere perfect for lounging and entertaining.

In addition to the new ceiling, I brought in a new, comfy sofa and ceiling light.

Adding a new sofa, allows for more seating when entertaining, and honestly makes the space just so much cozier.

The 72” Portola sofa invites relaxation, while the modern Talon ceiling light ((both from LuLu & Georgia) adds a touch of sophistication overhead.

And let’s not forget the final finishing touch – custom drapes from Two Pages curtains. Now I’m sure you’ve heard all the hype about these drapes all over social media, well I’m here to tell you, it’s REAL—With pleats, liner, and memory-trained fabric, these drapes  are ABSOLUTELY STUNNING—-Not only do they enhance the room’s aesthetic but they also offer practical light control and privacy.

We decided to keep the ceiling panels unstained, and I think it was a good decision.
