We just got these followup before and after photos from Julienne, whose home you may remember from the question, Ideas to Disguise Decorative Column? , which...
... we posted back in April. She writes:
A couple of months ago I wrote asking Apartment Therapy readers what we should do with the misbegotten column in the kitchen of our new condo. Many readers suggested we box it in drywall which is exactly what we did, given it was the cheapest, quickest solution available to us at the time. It completely changed the character of the space and made what is a rather awkward confluence of soffits make more visual sense. Instead of being a stopgap, I think it's our longterm answer. Thanks for the input!
So, if you left one of the many (50!) comments, consider yourself thanked by both Julienne and Apartment Therapy!
