It is about time I got this out. As I have said, time is time is time.
This is the dining room, left side.
We used to have a large Persian rug under the table, but my wife likes the flooring so much we will have to find another place for it.
This is the view of the dining room, right side.
The gate is to keep the kids (meaning the dogs) out of this room. Too much opportunity to mark the "new" space...
This views the living room, left side. Everything in the living room except for the grandfather clock is very antique.
The his/her chairs at the end of the room are circa 1820. Am I allowed to sit in either one? Noooo.. I am not even allowed to look at them. This is the "her" chair.
You have brief permission to view them, but don't look for long. I don't have written permission.
This shows some of the antique rug around which this room was designed, right down to the bubble gum wall color.
This views the living room, right side.
That is the "his" chair, although NOT mine. You are correct, I do not use the living room for anything.
Well, I do wind the clock every week, but must leave quickly.
This was a fun, though difficult, project. It was made more difficult by my schedule. That is the problem we all have, don't we? Would I do it again? Yes!
Together we looked at the rooms again last night. They have been transformed from comfortable spaces to very beautiful, formal spaces. They really pop.
I am pleased, we are pleased, with the results. The way I figure it, the house has grown in value by, what do you think, $200, $300K?
Thanks for coming along for the ride, however slow it was.
