Thursday, September 2, 2021 The Renovation is Done!!

 Hi Everyone!  I am happy to report the renovations are done!  I have some trim painting to finish and some unpacking but all the actually work is done, the contractors are gone and life carries on!  Here are some finished photos:

I painted the Dining Room (SW Frosted Sage) and hung some valances up.  This room is pretty much done now except for Fall decorating!

Another picture of the dining room.

This photo is hanging in the breakfast room area.  Jenny found this oil painting at a thrift store for $13!  I love it!

New Rug in the den!

I put together one of the two bookcases for the den.  This goes with my desk in there.  Color is Chalked Chestnut.

Living Room

Fall arrangement I made for the Living Room.

Living Room from another angle.

I love this blue and white chair with the blue paint on the walls.

Living room, which I will be putting up new curtains soon.

This is the new front door.  I made a Fall basket for the front door.  I also spray painted the black lanterns I had and put them on the porch.  I put faux candles in the lanterns.  The upper shutters are all back on and it looks great!

This is the first time since this garage was built in 1979 that it had garage doors !  I think it looks so much better.  After I finish up the things in the house, I will then work on the outside gardens.  I want to create a cutting garden, a few raised bed veggie and flower gardens in the backyard, get the shrubs trimmed and clean up the driveway by power washing it.  

That is all the photos I have so far!  I am really enjoying my new house and I'm so glad the reno is over and I can enjoy everything here!  I hope you like what I did!

    1. Hi Mary! Sorry it took so long to get back to you. Thank you for your kind words. I still have some minor things to work on but the bulk of it is all done! I have to say it did turn out really nice. I was lazy all day today but I'll be back at the small things I still need to do tomorrow. Have a great evening!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.

Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!

Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
