Tuesday's are usually a bit slower paced for me so...
I thought I would take advantage of the amazing light that was streaming into the house and show you a few of the things we did prior to the Holidays.
Sound like fun?
Let's start in the kitchen and dining room...now remember,
We are not finished but I did do some quick decorating to get us through until we began working again.
You know me...always putting the pretties out before the construction is complete:)
Our kitchen island is now at about 75% complete . Just days before the kids started to arrive for Christmas...we installed the zinc counter top.
And yes....we did it ourselves....and yes...I will show how we did it in a few days!
I have one more small counter to wrap so I thought I would give you the tutorial then.
I have had several emails about this project and promise to share the details. Ireally love how it turned out!
I must warn you though...this was a bit tricky!
My hubby cut down the legs on these barstools to make them counter height.
We've had them for awhile...even used them in the house before the renovation. I kind of like them here in the new kitchen.
What do you think? Should I keep them or still look for the upholstered ones I had been thinking about?
So many decisions...but I have learned to take my time and not rush into anything...It has made such a difference!
Hubby framed the fireplace out just before Christmas too. It's will be a pass through with a vent free gas log. I still have to decide what I want it clad in...so here it sits...waiting for me!
I've always wanted a fireplace in the kitchen and dining room...I can't wait to see it finished!
This is our nearly completed dining room...we are really close in here!
Once the fireplace is completed we can install baseboards and have another ta-da to add to our list! YAY!
We actually eat here every evening!
Yesterday I had a few errands to run in town so I stopped into my favorite junk shop.
These amazing doors called out to me and I had to bring them home!
Can you say LOVE?
That's just how I feel about these babies!
They are nearly the same color as my reclaimed hardwood floors!
The Living room and Library are coming along too!
I promise to share more pictures of these rooms soon!
I have practically spent all my time in the living room lately...basking in the sun! The weather has been so warm and wonderful...I don't want to miss a minute of it!
I'll be back soon to share the how-to's and why for's on the zinc counter project...
Until next time,
Many blessing my friends!
