You and you father-in-law did such a nice job on that. I bet he likes it as much as you do.

The appliqued wainscoting is so wonderful, it just makes a house feel right and it's good that you added it back in. Lots of hard work I know but worth it for you and the future owners.

I like your results. It's good that you set a budget and worked your decisions around that. I tend to cough up a certain amount of money for the big changes and then suffer through the rest of the items over time. My projects take so long this way.

Oh yes, very pretty. I like the grey, it's got some blue in it.

What a lovely way to bring your back yard into your life and get the benefit of out door time. Well done.

On my screen the wall color looks to be aubergine and that is pretty dramatic too! Well done, it's always good to gut the space to find what is back there, even a few inches is great in a tiny space.

It's lovely but the best thing about it is the quality of pieces that are displayed. They are beautiful.

That is an excellent result and a great idea for our icky stairwell. Thanks!

I love the picture on top of the very pretty dresser, late 50's early 60's?

Well done. I've got an 11-year-old who would probably like a version of this idea.

There is a beautiful "grain flower" in the middle that seems to show up on her blog a little better. Well done.

Simple as the idea is, "paint it white," it made a tremendous difference and I have to agree with Michelle, the original pulls were slightly wrong somehow. Big improvement.

Oh, the tiles are perfect. We were in the Yucatan last year and the tile floors have stuck with me. I've got two bathrooms to do . . . I just might go for it.
