I really hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We really tried to enjoy it as much as we could knowing it would be our last one in this house! Of course 48 hours later an agent wanted to show our house to someone, so the stress is back on! UGH! But choosing to look at the bright side, tomorrow will make two showings since Christmas! Hallelujah!
Here are some updated pictures of the house! Truth be told, they are a lil old! I didn't mean for that to rhyme either! But this is what I have to show for today!
The mudroom, which was originally supposed to be the laundry room. That is until I moved the laundry upstairs and made this little space the "landing pad" of our new home. Hopefully our little cubbies and cabinets (those shelves will be covered by doors soon!) will keep us organized. And below the benches are shelves for shoes! YAY!
This is a shot of the coffered ceiling in the Study. This will be a multi-use room for our books, games and piano. It is directly to the left when you walk in the front door. Small room but cozy and will serve its purpose.
This is a shot of the Master bathroom shower! Still have to decide on a
shower door! Nothing like waiting until last minute!
Here is the keeping room fireplace all completed! I stained and sealed the mantle myself. Everyone thought I had made a mistake when they opened the box for the mantle. But I wanted a rustic, non-fussy mantle in here. Hope it works like I thought it would in my head!
And the beams in the keeping room that our very talented carpenter made! I originally was going to go with real re-claimed barn wood. But the sheer weight (and price) scared me. So he made them out of pine and we stained it and voila, beams!
Here is the family room fireplace which is not painted yet, but will be soon! They are starting on painting all the trim tomorrow! The wood floors area all in and ready to be stained. Things are moving right along!
Those of you that are still reading, in spite of my very long absences, THANK YOU! I have been spreading myself very thin lately, but I think we are on the home stretch of this!
