Wow – the transformation of the last week has been amazing. Like “take my breath away” amazing. The haint blue ceilings I have swooned over for years are finally here – and ours. And we get them on two porches! Do we really get to live here? (This is what I keep asking myself…) The cabinets were delivered on Tuesday and the crew have been busy installing all week. To say that we are excited is the understatement of the year. Enough bitching about our current digs – the light is shining bright at the end of the tunnel. (That is a little smile coming from Jonathan’s face!) The old doors have been installed in the pantry and powder room. I really love the view of the new powder room tile through the transom window. It’s fun to have a modern surprise of 1/2″ penny tile covering the entire sink wall. And – next up for this powder...

Cabinets and Faucets and Finishes, Oh My!

Over the past couple of weeks, we have spent some time working to get the finishes complete.  We’ve had a few scheduling conflicts so it’s great that Jonathan and I are on the exact same page.   We trust each other’s taste completely when it comes to selecting finishes. First stop was the cabinet manufacturer.  Sadly Jonathan got stuck in FL so I ventured up to Dalton (practically Tennessee) by myself.  It’s been a while since I’ve had a nice, long drive and it was a nice break from the zip and go driving routine I have around town.  This was not really difficult as the cabinetry was beautiful.   Solid wood across the board – no melamine boxes here! I really love the bottom detail of the cabinetry. The style we wanted is simple, classic and straightforward. These kitchen cabinets will be painted white.  We’ll use reproduction antique cast iron...
