Getting Closer to Done!

Hi everyone! Just a quick glimpse of the progress on our first floor remodel.  Yes, I painted my walls a deep burgandy - I am in love! Out of the current color stratosphere I know, but I guess I am a rebel.  My Pottery Barn Allessandra gold panels really pop now.

We picked up this awesome light fixture at Lowe's a few weeks ago - it has a industrial, yet farmhouse style.  It can be used as a pot rack, but I am looking forward to dressing it up for fall and Christmas.  Mr. Bluebird brought me home the beautiful bouquet of flowers yesterday to celebrate his first day of going back to his health club to work out since his back surgery in June.

 A night time shot of my coffee table - just a little fall.  With all the remodeling mess, seasonal decor has been a no-show around here.  But watch out Christmas! It is going to be an extravaganza! (Even bought a new faux tree today at Menards)
All of the floors on the main level were installed last week, so our living room is basically done (waiting on a rug I've ordered to come in).  After recovering from pneumonia and also having the first floor ripped apart since Labor Day, hubby and I are planning a pizza/tv night tonight, along with the scent of some yummy, cozy, comforting candles.

Next week our kitchen cabinets are being professionally painted (Ben Moore Subtle), and that should do it for awhile. Time to put everything back & make it pretty. Can't wait to show you all we have done! So many changes!

While the painters paint next week, I will be upstairs painting our master bedroom - found a fab deal on bedding which has sent me in to further re-do mode.  Ha ha! It never ends, does it?

Thanks for stopping by!
Wishing you happiness,

  1. Morning Jane!
    Glad you are feeling better!!

    I LOVE LOVE the walls and am surprised as I thought you were probably painting some accent piece - lol. I have been toying with the idea of doing an accent wall in red and just may have to now that I see how much warmth your color added. I've been redoing my kitch/fam room and added lots of red with black and white - I too am a "rebel"! Also LOVE LOVE the light fixture/pot rack. That would be perfect over my island. Hubby has been on a hunting trip and I may just have to get a little reward for not complaining about him going...lol! I can just imagine how gorgeous your first level is going to be with Christmas decor.

    It's nice to see the light at the end of the tunnel/remodel!

    Have a great weekend
    Sincerely, Jeannette

  2. No, it never ends! But that's why it's fun. Ha! I love the color you chose for your dining room. It's a rich color which goes well with your dark furniture. The light fixture is very nice too! It looks like you can dress it up for the holidays too. Sounds like you're making the best of the situation with all of the mess of remodeling and the waiting of things to arrive for completion. There always has to be a mess before the beauty! Glad you are feeling better too.
