Seventeen years in Massachusetts, and now New Hampshire for the next (simpler?) chapter of our lives!
Here's David in his happy place with plans for restoring the beauty of the little brook that runs through the property:
Nestled in the woods, but still light and bright - just a dreamy setting -
I did immediately want to lighten up the kitchen. The walls were red when we moved in and we immediately had them painted white. And then I set out to "emergency paint" the cabinets.
However... in the end.... I just know I picked the wrong color! I was going for a subtle gray, but this is icy cold and just wrong. I know I need to change it again but I can't face it! I may not bother, but.... I don't know.
On the positive side, I'm experimenting with some open cabinets and so far, I LOVE it. Everything within reach and I do love my Japanese dishes.
Window trim will be professionally painted in another couple months...
Finally I turned my attention to the sewing room:
Into THIS (the walls are white - don't know what happened in this photo):
It was an exercise in priorities. I really wanted to have that brown wicker chair in the room - it's been with us since 1990 and I still love it -
Another priority - guest bed space. I taped off the space for a future daybed/trundle, and for now, air mattress. The cutting table is two Ikea rolling carts - and can be rolled away to make way for a trundle or air mattress.
And.... then finally got to sewing! I will write more about this next time. It feels so good to be back in the swing of quilting. Hoping now to get back into the swing of blogging as well.
Hope those of you who are in "back to school" mode are loving it, one way or another!
