The living room is looking up. It’s already a big improvement looking at the raw drywall. Just the fact that it’s smooth and all of the lumps and bumps are gone is a good feeling. Now we just have to sand and finish the drywall before we can think about paint. I’m definitely not looking forward to the sanding part.
We took advantage of the fact that the ceiling would be exposed and decided to call our go-to electrician to come in and install 6 recessed canned lights to add some much needed light in this room. We ended up going with 6 inch diameter ceiling cans because they give a wider wash of light. We also thought the 4 inch diameter lights would look too dainty in the large living room ceiling.
