It may not look ready for Christmas company,
but when I put the second coat on the baseboards of the guest room today,
I crossed that room off my list of things to do!
"F"inished painting another room!
I love that F word!
I'm not promising sheets or a working refrigerator at Christmas,
but there is paint on the walls of the guest room!
And yes the whole crew is coming here!
It's still primer white in the other bedroom with raw crown molding
and more hours of work than I have time for
before I meet the first flight at the airport.
I keep telling them to pack their senses of humor;
I hope they believe me.
Today I worked on door and cased opening oak trim
in the kitchen, drop zone and half bath
While I'd love to show off, there's no way to take a photo of a coat of satin polyurethane
or shellac sealcoat.
But how about something pretty?
I promised photos of what I didn't show yesterday
over on the other side of the den
The colonnade wall separating the dining room is in!
|Den, Tapered Colonnade Wall and Dining Room (French door to porch opened inside)|
They're some serious tapered columns!
|Looking into the kitchen from the den|
And in the space between the foyer, den and stairwell....
The holes that look like little bird houses at the bottom of the shelves
will be cut out for vents for air returns.
|Foyer with bookshelves|
But the columns are stealing the show
Like everything else in the house,
They're larger than you might expect
But somehow are exactly the right size for the space.
Here's a peak at the kitchen through the dining room.
I'll aim for some kitchen photos tomorrow!
