Entryway Redone!



For this trim work project, I wanted to find a new guy to hire.  The trim work I had done in the past was done well, but took a long time to complete so I wanted to find someone that could get it done quickly for me.  I HIGHLY recommend this guy.  He was extremely reliable, detail oriented, worked hard, and got it all done in 3 days!  I couldn't have been happier.  
His name is Lee Hyland (801-815-1862).  
If you live in or around the Salt Lake City area then you're in luck :)
Here are some pictures of the process:

I also had him add a bigger header to all my doors in my hallway, 
and a bit of trim to the inside of these wide arches that enter into my kitchen.

The next step was painting, Lee recommended some painters for me that he often works with and they too were fabulous!  I requested that they paint it all by hand (I hate the mess that spraying creates) and they accommodated my craziness and did a beautiful job!

Once it was painted, I had grasscloth wallpaper installed.  This is the wallpaper I ordered.  I felt comfortable going with "faux" grass cloth since it wasn't at eye level so nobody would notice otherwise (I don't think I would use it if it was eye level?).  I used the company Details by Others for the installation.

Now I'm itchin' to get the last 2 rooms in the house done!  Just my bedroom and the office to go!
