This is the wall to the left of the formal living room. That wall was closed in the beginning stages with our architect but I decided to open it up so that the hallway wouldn’t feel too long and dark. Then I added a recessed niche and had the carpenters add some 7 in. wide planks. A fun backdrop for a photo collage! I have this whole room already decorated in my head. :)
Oh my word. Sorry for the slow week on the blog everyone! Things are hopping at the new house and I have pretty much been living there lately. In fact, tonight I’ve been considering just taking a sleeping bag on up and breaking my new bedroom in a little early. The only thing holding me back is a vision of what my girls’ hair might look like for school if Kenny is left alone in charge of the morning routine. Scary. :) Here are a few pics of some recent progress with the finish work.
Getting ready to start the ceiling in the master bedroom.
Beams went up first!
And then the tongue and groove! Which I prefer to call planks. :) The whole ceiling will be painted white and the family room ceiling will be the same. They started that ceiling yesterday. Yea for progress!
Entry paneling is finished.
And everything is getting a lovely primer coat of crazy bright white. I’m still torn on what color to paint my front door and dutch door and I have to decide quick because the color determines the finish of my door hardware which we need to order soon. Leaning towards black. Or maybe a fun blue? Probably black. Maybe.
Recent pics with the primer.
Planks for the ceiling over the kitchen nook. Crown will go up soon to finish the look!
Doors have all been installed and primed.
And here is a picture of the kitchen from last week. (Decided not to put planks in between these beams).
Right now my kitchen is full of cabinets!
And they are all over the floor!
And they are going to be installed tomorrow!
Not that I’m excited or anything.
