The Extra Room

The poor little room off the bedroom which never got fixed up --even before the storm-- is finally getting it's chance. First up: a new closet.

Saying Goodbye

I'm surprised at how long it's been since I've posted. A few little things have been happening which I'll post about shortly as we finish up post-storm work, but we've been mostly distracted with saying goodbye to Franklin. Best cat ever, youthful to the last of his 15 years, I'm so happy he was able to move here with me and realize his love affair with stairs, bird watching, escaping into the backyard to rub himself on the pavement, and commandeering the stove griddle for naps.

 Best company, constant buddy, and sleep-mate....he is sorely missed.

Make-over Two: Studio Kitchen

A much needed tile backsplash, behind the stove and around the windows...



And slate sills...



Make-over One: Vestibule

We put up wainscot with trim...I'm actually toying with the idea of painting it a color...but don't hold me to that.


And mounted an old mirror...

Back to normal-ish...

Yes! We're back to inhabiting the whole house, and regular sleeping downstairs. 


Bedroom!! Hooray.


And the extra room (to become sitting/reading/TV room)...this time around not filled with junk!
(note: junk is still in storage)
