The electrician worked today and I was so excited I had to post more pictures. I bought this fixture from an antique store (I don't think it's an antique) for $125. I absolutely love the way it turned out. This provided the look that I was going for at a fraction of the cost.
Pottery barn depot light for my sons room. My husband works for the railroad so I thought this was appropriate.


I decided to use a large mirror to open up this space. I love the result. I used the triple lugarno sconce from restoration hardware.

Let there be light!!! So cool......



Progress......

There has been a lot of progress the past couple of weeks. Things are starting to come together and look like a finished house. I really like how the vanity turned out in the half bath. It really matches the style of the house.
I'm having trouble with my camera. I can't seem to get many shots that aren't blurry. My countertop was installed yesterday and I love it. I can't wait to do the touch and feel test.


The kids bath upstairs is coming along really nicely as well. I bought these pedestals from restoration hardware around Christmas time when they were having some great sales. I got these pretty cheap.

I chose cliffside gray from Benjamin Moore for the Master bedroom. I absolutely love it. It is a gray with blue undertones.



Our tile installer ran out of tile and will have to come back next week to finish. I think this will turn out nicely too. I chose Benjamin Moore moonlight white for the wall color. It really made the trim look gray. Once all the furnishings are in I think it will look really good.










We had to wait to finish the hand rail until after the floors were finished. I feel much safer for the kids now that it is in. I'm not sure if I like the black handrail yet. I might have the painter paint it white. What do you think? These walls are painted moonlight white now too.

More kitchen images. The installer finished the back of the island. I think it turned out fantastic. I can't wait to get the countertop!


More Progress..........

This is the way we all feel after the past couple of weeks. We have been running like crazy!
My kitchen island is finally installed. I can't wait until the kids can eat breakfast here for the first time.

The crown moulding was added today. It is starting to look finished!


This is the kids bathroom that they are going to share. There will be a pedestal sink on each side of the vanity.

Kitchen ingredients

What do you think about using this Windsor Smith fabric to make cafe curtains for the window above my sink?


I didn't go with a farmhouse sink even though I really wanted to. Instead I went with this double basin sink from Kohler. I think it will look fantastic.


One of my favorite blogs is Cote De Texas. I fell in love with the faucet from her post on "Stalking the Wheats." I new the minute I saw it that it was the one for me. It is sitting in my closet just waiting for the day it will be installed.

Kitchen Love







My cabinets are finally being installed! They have been stored in our garage since February. At long last they are finally being unveiled and I think I'm in love!! My sink arrived today as well. Things are finally starting to come together. I've decided to go with labrador black/silver brushed granite. It will take approx. 14 days to get it from the fabricator.
