I am starting to feel like 2011 is the year of the never ending house projects! Since the kitchen renovation ended in March I have been busy trying to get the rest of the house in order. Like any major renovation that quintessentially transforms your living space "feel" we have had a domino effect of projects that have spread like wildfire throughout the rest of our sweet little ranch house. My dear husband keeps asking: "when is it going to be done?" I reassure him, "I'm trying, I promise!" but pesky budgets, the obsession to search for "the perfect" piece and that valuable little thing called time seem to all get in the way.
|Chris said this one was "too small". Legs dangled over.|
|This one wasn't "deep enough".|
|This one was at Up Country in the Mart. Not my 1st choice until we sat down. |
Then WE KNEW we were taking this Lee Industries love cradle home. Ps...this was Liza's 1st choice.
|looooved that dropped ceiling & faux paneling!|
|Eventually I will find some curtains for this space and maybe a real ottoman! Still searching.|
|We searched high and low for a non-typical component piece and stumbled upon this one next to the sofa. It was at Kudzu in Decatur. It was made of industrial steel and it was black. Nothing a little paint wouldn't fix!|
|Found these fun pieces at Home Grown Living with my girl Liza. Finally we have a place for our mail and keys |
And of course our wine corks!!
|This is Chris's favorite part of the WHOLE renovation. |
Here we are watching Sideways tonight. With some wine you ask? YES!
|This was the fun piece Liza and I found at Creative Coop.|
Great for dvd's, pitchers, table cloths and more.
|This Cline Cellers Mourvedre helped guide and keeps me going throughout my design process...|
