more done

Not alot I can show you except this pic shows the window frame back on.. not painted yet.. it's starting to all come together :)

A better view of the moldings ( photos are click-able to enlarge)

The bathroom in the mud room got a door! The moldings are still being stripped, but it's looking up too!
Maybe next trip some more painting will get finished.. still have ceilings to do in the livingroom, parlor, and foyer..and of course walls, but first things first.

Kitchen Photos!

Still not finished... things just take time, but after a 3 day weekend, progress happened! The counter tops are made, they are sitting there, just not attached yet.. some things need be done first .

The light over the island was installed..

Hmmm just a closer up picture of the sink area.The stove goes on the left in that empty space, and the dishwasher goes on the right.

Just a different view. There is something above the cabinets on the wall.. I will explain in a few.

this is a drawing of the proposed back splash.It will be white subway tiles, with glass tiles for an accent. This was just thrown up to give me a quick peek to make up my mind of where to put the glass tiles... glad it was, cos now I've made up my mind. One block farther down suits me fine !

Now for that thing on the wall above the cabinets... We stole the design from the front staircase.. I wanted to carry the design into the kitchen.. we already used it on the island, on the counter supports... we took one small section and carved it into the supports.. not that anyone will see them anyway! (visible on two pics above, click on it to enlarge)

But now...I love the way cabinets look with crown molding above it. Sooo... I bought a piece, and had it tacked up in two places so I could have a look see... IN this pic, the crown molding is directly above the cabinets, ( a little too close for me) then the design will be above it.

In this picture, the crown molding is above the design near the ceiling.. it looks okay to me, makes the design not look so good... what to do?

Well, as for the hinges and door knobs, well... I ordered them, and they came in in plenty of time to make it up to the house... only.... &%@@#$! I ordered the wrong ones! The knobs are fine, but the hinge won't work...I couldn't understand, I copied the order numbers from the last time I got some. Hmmmm. kept wondering how I made that mistake, and then... (light bulb goes on) NOW I remember, the first time I ordered them, I also ordered the wrong ones, and had to send them back for new! &%$#~! I had forgotten, I must have copied the wrong order sheet... ok back to the drawing board. ha ha ha next time!.
