Okay Dokey……

It’s back to work time.  No more whining.  Holidays are over.  

But wait one more thing…..you guys are the besttest ever.  Period.

Madison project update.  I took a drive up there on the 26th to check on the progress.  The tile had just been installed and I was excited to see the bathrooms!

But first let me explain the changes….this is confusing so pay attention!

 The side porch was removed and they added a dining room and FR room….then added a new porch with a guest room attached.

The new guest room will have a bathroom and morning kitchen.

I picked this pretty green tile….which is way out of the box for me but I was ready to do something fun!

The floors in the bedroom are this pretty gray color from Authentic Reclaimed Floors….

The porch fireplace is getting done…
The door to that guest room is to the right of the FP.

You can see here from the new dining room….the door leads to the porch and the new guest suite.

These walls are painted Iron Ore.

Pretty beams…..

This is looking into the DR from the new family room and below standing in the DR and looking into the family room [pocket doors will be added].

Are you confused yet?

This is the new family room where the TV will go.

The trim and ceiling is painted BM Berkshire Beige.  There is a pretty Thibaut textured wallpaper going on the walls….

Looking into the new FR from the old FR…..The old  space will just have 4 chairs in front of the fireplace….and all this yellow pine [we are over it] will be washed with Revere pewter.  The floors will be stained darker.

This is the old main level bathroom which is also getting a face lift.  This space will be wallpapered and thru the door…..

They took out an old tub [in the above area] and re-installed a new shower.

This area will get a gray textured grass cloth.

This was the old barn which will become another guest suite.

Hard to tell but these floors are black and the shower tile is khaki.

It’s getting a stone fireplace….

Back to the main house the kitchen is getting a makeover also.

The cabinets will be painted Iron Ore and the island is being painted Revere Pewter…..along with the walls and ceiling.  New countertops and appliances with ceiling pendants.  I will go into the furniture and design on another post.

I just wanted to bore you to death with these lame pictures before we get to the good stuff….interior design:)

Y’all….. I let it get out of control.  Cami’s fur.  She is so matted that today she is getting a shave…..

I hate to do it in the middle of winter but I have a good sweater she will wear.

And on NYE I went to the movies with a friend and we saw Little Women.

It was SO good and the costume design was incredible….think Ralph Lauren…..

I need a velvet vest like right now!!!

Happy New Year friends….
