See, I told you I had run out of titles. 🙂
So here are some of the updates on the Green House.
The fireplace is completed except for the mantle. The hearth is made from slate tiles. Zoom in to see how the tile guy managed to put all the colors together. I love this. I wasn’t here when he was doing this or I would have driven him crazy with my “suggestions”. He got lucky on this day.
The wood floors are done except for sanding and staining.
The kitchen is coming together nicely. We did a pretty good job of matching all the wild colors.
We found some crazy Spanish tiles online and decided to install them on the back of the island bar just for fun. No, they have no meaning, and they don’t even really match, but they make us smile.
A wooden bar will be built on top of this with stools for guests to watch the master chef (Jim) cook in this crazy kitchen. No one will ever hire us as decorators. That’s for sure. The house is not “tasteful” by regular standards, but a couple of people have called it “cheerful” and “happy”. I can’t think of a better compliment.
With all the construction going on, we’ve piled lights, plumbing fixtures, ceiling fans etc. all over the Pink House inside and out. If you visit us there you will feel like you’ve walked into a tiny Home Depot. Rowdy discovered this little mirror today and enjoyed looking at the BEAUTIFUL new kitty in the house.
Oh Wowdy. 🙂
