So Much for Faux Barnwood…

Accent WallAccent Wall (before)Although I loved the faux barnwood look, once the flooring went in the two competed in a not so flattering way…at first I thought it would grow on me, but after a few months I knew it had to change.  We tried several shades of yellow – some were real eye openers – kinda like when you dye your hair & cringe every time you pass a mirror 🙂  For the entry wall, I finally went with the kitchen cabinet color

For the kitchen & picture window wall, I settled on a dreamy creamy yellow that is bright & cheery enough for the space, but relaxing at the same time!

Just one coat, but LOVE LOVE the color!

Obviously there’s more to finish, but the color change is creating the relaxing vibe I long for.  I went by Lucille today to ‘take in the space’ and was immediately relaxed – so relaxed I fell asleep sitting on my oh so comfy love seat!

The to-do list is still long, but making progress…again!


Groundbreaking Excitement!

Perhaps not for everyone, but definitely for me! This weekend my truly awesome friends dedicated their precious time & skills towards Lucille’s future home! Let me tell you, I’m pretty much clueless when it comes to fully comprehending what it takes to create a solid foundation, but I’m learning.

We’re talking c-o-u-n-t-r-y folks… don’t just call a contractor and zippidy doo dah it’s done. I’m beyond blessed to have such extraordinary friends!  It was a productive day – we’re ready for the rain to pack in the first load of dirt; another load and we’ll be ready to put up the slab form (I think that’s what it’s called!)
