At last, here are the photos I promised! I hadn't forgotten, I was just having a heck of a time getting them transferred from the camera to the computer. Until I figured out that I had the camera cord plugged into the wrong place. Not that I'm technologically challenged or anything. Ahem.
I think my roosters look happy, perched up on the top of the fridge.
The previous owners left all of the blinds and window treatments. I love the wood blinds and the awning-style valence in the kitchen. A-a-and looking at this picture, I'm thinking the lamp needs to be hung a bit lower. It's running into the valence. But, the valence looks very cute with my rooster theme. However, the curtains in the rest of the house will be changed, eventually. A few yards of fabric, and presto!
The kitchen leads right into the family room, and the door on the right leads out to a deck. Hubs already has a plan to expand the deck, cover it and screen it in.
Here's a closer view of the family room. (Note the soon-to-be-removed valence. Upon closer view, it's rather artsy the way it is sewn together. But I still look at it and see two pieces of fabric thrown over a rod.)
The house is sorely in need of bookcases! These two flanking the fireplace are it, with the exception of a few that we brought with us. So, there's another project. These will be retrimmed and painted, and we've yet to do some furniture shopping for a new sofa. This one will go up in the loft to recreate a reading/sewing/hobby area.
So we won't go there!
So, you can see I have a lot of work to do. I'm off to unpack a few more boxes, and do some laundry and cleaning. What's up with your day?
