The floors are all refinished and the rooms are starting to take shape. Most of our furniture is still in a POD in the driveway. We stored it while the hardwood floors were being done to keep them away from the dust. The holiday break will be a perfect time to move the furniture back in and get organized. There is still a lot more to do, but at least it feels more like home.
The hutch is almost finished and looks great in the kitchen! Just needs the right drawer pulls. I cant wait to style it with all my pieces. The kitchen is almost finished. The vent-fan in the range hood still needs to be installed, the backsplash needs to be tiled, and the pantry shelves need to be built. I have also done some work on my office and the powder room. There is so much I want to do and so many ideas. My head is about to explode!
My office is really starting to take shape. I decided to turn the desk to open the room up more. I also want to add some architectural interest. I was thinking of using these old muntins from my mother-in-law’s house as wainscoting. Maybe take it all the way around and put a chair rail on top? Still working that one out in my head!
This light fixture was my mother-in-laws. She was never a big fan, so I “inherited” it. Lucky me!
I was looking for fun vintage prints and found these on Art.com. They originally came from the covers of a French magazine named La Vie Parisianne, founded in 1863.
The wallpaper everyone helped me pick out is up! I am planning on painting the bottom of the wall a darker gray. Similar to the background in the wallpaper and separating it by a chair rail. I think it will make a real statement!
I tinted the ceiling paint with a hint of blue. I’ve done this in other rooms and it gives off a soft glow.
I refinished an antique frame a while ago. Once I put the mirror in, it will be perfect for the powder room!
They really did a great job on the kitchen floors. You can not tell where the old floor was!
The color of the hutch works perfectly with the island color and the counter stools.
