Just as my friend Connie is saying goodbye to her longarm, I'll be welcoming mine into my home. The shipping date has been confirmed, Tuesday July 15, as originally stipulated. I'm sure you can imagine, I have been hustling and bustling to get the house ready. In other words, I have been cleaning my butt off! My home is slowly starting to look presentable.
The room is coming together nicely. Here is the finished window seat.
Gosh, what a difference the renovations make. Before, I just wanted to get out of bed and out of the room. Now I can just sit for hours, reading, relaxed or just being there. I find it so welcoming.
I'm glad that it is finally done. There's nothing worse than sleeping in a room you cannot stand being in! lol
Stephen is presently building the bedroom and closet doors. They will all be painted white.
He finds that the room is noisy without the carpet. Of course he's not looking to put down more carpet! lol His priority is finishing the entrance door! lol
I think it might be the mini hallway that intensifies the noise. Of course, I'm not bothered by the noise at all. I'm just enjoying being in a beautiful relaxing room with functional windows. For some strange reason, all the windows were painted shut. Between brown floors and painted shut windows, you've got to wonder, what where these people thinking? lol
Saturday was spent cleaning the house, washing windows, curtains, fixtures and floors. It so needed it! Boring, but certain rewarding when you're finished and find yourself in a sparkling room. ;o)
The last bit of renovations we wanted to do, if you want to call it that, is paint the kitchen. I have decided on a Pottery Barn colour Wedgwood grey by Benjamin Moore. It goes well against the black granite counters and stainless steel.
Here you have a sample of what the colour looks like. It really is pretty and I certainly do not think the photo does it justice.
The ceiling has been painted, and all the trims are done, it's a matter of getting the walls done. I'll be doing that this week. I'm in the "gotta get the house done" mode.
The last room for me to tackle is the one that will have the longarm. Major spring cleaning needs to be done. Sigh! Then, the house will be totally clean!
I did do a bit of quilting. I decided to do a small version of Cheese and Crackers. It was great way for me to get rid of my scraps. I barely had enough. As least the background fabric is all used up! lol
I'm a bit behind on blog reading. Just so much to do! Today is filled with more cleaning, windows, but it's raining. What a blessing! ;o)
Have a great day everyone and thank you for stopping by!
