I haven’t talked about knotty pine in awhile…

I have written several posts on the merits of knotty pine paneling. You can read them here, here, here and here.

I, personally, am a fan of the knotty pine. I have it in my own home…albeit, it’s been painted…but I love the textural detail it brings to my living room.

This past weekend, my husband and I were in Maine looking at summer houses. We happened upon a sweet little cottage that has not been updated in the recent past…probably hasn’t been updated since it was built in 1920!

Anyway, it was a knotty pine extravaganza and I LOVED it!

In my humble opinion, knotty pine definitely has its place in certain decorating and design circles.

Thinking about knotty pine lead me on a before/after search.

And that search lead me here…

Design Sponge Knotty Pine Before:After

Is that transformation stunning or what!?!

With relatively few (if any) architectural changes and some white paint, this home is lovely!

So if you are fretting over buying a home with knotty pine, DON’T FRET!

It can be simply lovely with the right paint color…or, in some instances, even left plain!

If you’d like to see the whole transformation of this knotty pine house, head over to Design Sponge and see it here.
