This picture is of our unfinished fireplace. I want to face it with painted brick. When I tell most people that they look at me like I've lost my marbles. You can see it, can't you? And of course a mantle. Oh and bookcases on both sides with a place for the TV and all the electronics. The pictures on the hearth is a calendar that #2 daughter made me for Christmas. I'll show you what I did with them another time.
This is our bay window that looks out into the unlandscaped backyard. See the window needs trimming. We're hoping to do a lot of the trim work this winter when we can't work outside.
See the banner? It says SUMMER. In the next few days I'll make a new one that says AUTUMN. It's just scrapbook paper and letters I print off the computer and ribbon. I'll show you how later if you want.
A gate leg table I got at a yard sale that I painted white and use as a sofa table. It's great for extra seating at Thanksgiving. The lamp I got at the thrift store for $3.00. I need to foof up the shade.
The sofa, yes it's red and more toile cushions. Looking toward the eating area and kitchen.We've always had a formal dining room, but not in this house. I didn't want any extra space to clean that I didn't need. Our antique hutch always sat in the dining room and was quite lonely. Now it sits in here with us. I really think it enjoys being with the family. See that funny blue door? We bought all the interior doors at a demolition sale. But that's another post too.
