I’m so excited to share this post today! I have decided to divide this into multiple post because there are several things I wanted to share to give you all the details of this project. I completed this a few months ago, I just haven’t had time to sit down and blog about it until now. Room reveals are one of my favorite things to blog about. I mean who doesn’t enjoy a good before and after? 😉 I want to post a lot more of them, it just takes me a little longer to  write a post that has so many details. In the next few weeks I plan to share several before and after projects with y’all.

On this particular job I do not have a before picture. This started out as a chicken farm. I think the conference room and office area use to be a storage building, a stackhouse or something like that. I’ll just let you use your imagination! LOL 🙂

I will give you a little background info, this company is Pro-Green Lime. They converted a former chicken farm into a recycling plant. Because it is a recycling plant I tried to reuse, repurpose, and recycle as many items as possible on this job.  Those are things I like to do anyway!

I’m going to start off with the conference room.

A sitting area and a coffee bar on the left was the perfect way to create a balance.

I used three different shades of paint in this room. The walls are Functional Gray by Sherwin-Williams The trim is Gauntlet Gray by Sherwin-Williams and the cabinet color is Urbane Bronze by Sherwin-Williams. Urbane Bronze has a bit of a bronze/green undertone which was perfect for all of my fabrics and trim.

For the window treatment I used a linen fabric panel accented by this awesome tape trim (from Fringe Market) on the leading edge.

This is four panel distressed map is printed on metal. It was my starting point for the colors in the room.

Since we’re on the subject of art, let’s talk about these lights! They look like art on the ceiling and they make my ❤️ so happy!    I wanted the lighting  in this room to be a wow factor!  It definitely is that!

I described the lights I wanted to my carpenter and he totally nailed it! (No pun intended!) 😂We used recycled tin from the chicken house for the backside and threaded rods on the front. The exposed Edison bulbs add to the character of the room.

In the center we created these lights from  industrial pipe and Edison bulbs. They’re so cool! They even have the gauges and knobs to create the look of working pipes!

 The conference table is 8×8. It was the inspiration for this room.  When my client asked me to start on this project they had just purchased this table. I was Thrilled! I loooove the rustic look and feel it adds to the room! Mid-Century Modern chairs complete the look.

Well, that’s it for part one! 😊

Stay tuned……
