These two things go a LONG way. I was able to get a glimpse of the floors before they were covered up. We went a little darker and I’m really pleased with the color. The stain is Provencial. Ryan our awesome builder was able to source vintage heart pine and our “new” old floors look incredible! The Brazilian ipe we used on the back porch is amazing. This is not stained and is just sealed. What beautiful, natural colors this wood has. It’s also the hardest wood so we chose it for these properties for our back porch. They installed the ceiling fans – which will come in very handy on our Hotlanta days. And hung the screen doors (which we will seal and stain in a natural, wood color.)

And while I’m sick and tired of showering in one, I think they are beautiful and want to incorporate one in the guest hall bath. And what fun that this bath has caused.  (NOT!) First we had to get the plumbing up that needed to get this bathroom.  A pipe next to our front door was not in the plans. Thankfully we have found a solution to deal with this by framing both sides of the window at an angle. Funny thing is, when we look at our neighbors’ homes, they have that exact solution.  Phew! My inspiration with painting this tub started early on when I started using houzz.  I was obsessed with recreating this bathroom.  Problem was that this wall sink was discontinued.  I spent hours and hours trying to locate...
