August – Beams

At the end of every day when I finally curl up on the couch to watch a few minutes of TV before I fall asleep, my eyesight is always drawn to the eyesore on the ceiling. We have a bit of a vaulted ceiling and over time, it has cracked where the drywall seam is. It’s a normal thing that happens but it looks ugly.

Now when I climb on the couch, I have a new view. We’ve had box-beams installed to cover the seams. It looks amazing. They are stained dark to match the beams in the kitchen and give a natural flow from one room to the next. I think it gives the room a more complete look and maybe even makes it feel cozy – not that we need cozy as it hits 100 degrees outside – but this winter, I’ll appreciate cozy even more.

First a board got attached to the ceiling that covered the crack in the dry wall.
Then it got covered in a box-beam.
What a difference it makes, and the beams look like a continuation of the beams in the kitchen.

  1. Very pretty. We have some in our home, too, and I think it adds warmth. Although, as you said, you will more appreciate that five months from now.

    Okay, now it’s a new day and time for a new project!
