Ahem.....for those of you who need a potty break....or just a break....you are excused. I know this is long but it is my one and only last renovation so I'm showing it all.
Drawers, drawers and more drawers.
Love, love, love!!!
I'm in love with my faucet.
My kitchen is not big - but I like it that way. I'm a solo cook and everything is within arms or a few steps reach. So get out of my way 'cause I can fly.
And my diningroom is very large so this size kitchen is perfect for me/us.
And the (old library) now family room - connected so I can see everything and we can all be together. Walls and closets and a powder room were removed and re-located to get this view.
And I spend a fair amount of time just staring and grinning.
All CD's and DVD's and toys and games are tucked away. Just my beloved books hold center stage. We use to have our piano in here too. We sold it (along with a whack of recording equipment) and bought a little beauty which I'll reveal later. It's in the loft - where we lived for the better part of 3 months - so there's no way any human eyes will see that cacophonous area except us for awhile.
Did I mention I love my books?
(This is about a quarter of them. I gave/threw away about half of what I originally had in this room and we have book cases in the loft, my art studio, and Dan's office too. And Dahlia's collection is....ummm.......pretty big and growing.
I know....you don't have to say it!))
My all-time favorite book is on this shelf. Can you guess?
I don't know why....I just loved this book. Period.
Well, that's it! I still have to finish up the powder room and a few other things which I'll show later. (That is if you're into powder rooms.)
And to all those who have sympathized and waited patiently - thank you.
And if you're renovating....well....God bless you!
And may the force be with you.
