My house is a construction zone! I’ve so wanted to get back down to my workshop and get busy on some new work, but we are STILL painting.
We are on to the biggest room of the house now. This room includes the great room, dining room, kitchen and open areas upstairs, so it’s a huge job. This is what I’m living in. The color is a little off here. Those of you who know me well know that, being a ‘Nole, orange is the last color I’d paint my house. This is a really pretty light terra cotta; it’s official name is “Terra Earth”.
Click on the photos to enlarge to get the true feel of the fact that the disruption has not stopped the girls from playing; their toys are mixed in everywhere, and I think they are truly enjoying playing amongst this fun new jumbled furniture arrangement. Most of this furniture will be finding a new house as I've splurged on a gorgeous new Pottery Barn sectional in a neutral stone color. I'm still deciding between keeping the cranberry chairs and losing the plaid chair, or recovering the plaid chair in a fun fabric and losing the cranberry chairs.
This wall above the kitchen is our biggest challenge. As you can see, it STARTS nine feet above the floor and rises up to 22 feet. It will most likely be the last part we tackle since we'll have to get some scaffolding in here. We hope to have at least the main living area done by the end of the weekend so we can get the current furniture back in place until the new pieces arrive. Wanna come help?
