The painter has no openings until the beginning of November but promises it will be completed by Thanksgiving. The master closet is scheduled for a makeover on November 19th. We also have a doorwall and window to remove and replace with solid walls. An all season room was added to this house. When they did so they left the doorwall that leads to the master suite and a window that looks into the great room. That is next on our list of priorities and we hope to have it done before the painter is ready.
The fireplace in the living room was flanked by windows on either side. One was blocked off by the previous owner but the window frame and a recessed area was left in the one that they removed to put a pantry into the all purpose room. The other window, as stated, is still there. We are ordering up bookcase/cupboards to flank either side of the fireplace. Most of the window coverings have been ordered and we are awaiting delivery.
The kitchen is pretty nice and I am mostly happy with it. We will be replacing the wood floor with tile, adding a dishwasher and replacing the window treatments. I am very happy to have a working kitchen again with all my small appliances back where they belong.
We had our first dinner party last night when we celebrated our daughter, Amy's, birthday. I really like the flow of this kitchen much better than my other kitchen and am loving all the counter space I have.
Frank hung my kitchen sign that was made for me by my friend, Tamie. She creates custom made signs and does a wonderful job. This one features my Polish hen, Stella, and was handpainted. You can find and order her signs at her Etsy Shop, Tamie Marie Design. You are sure to find the perfect Christmas gift for that special someone.
