Here is a view of our screened in porch. Can't wait till summer to decorate it.
Our pantry decorated for christmas.
The kitchen is all painted, but we still have to purchase our island and our new harvest table and chairs. The basket on the left is a authentic potatoe basket. I have turned the opening so that fergus won't steal the potatoes.

Our bedroom before we painted. and here is the after.

We had our set made a few years back and I love my dressing table.

Here is our guest room before and after. Its already for our christmas guests to arrive. I hope you enjoyed your visit.

Before and After

Well the boxes have finally been opened.

We had a painter come in before the furniture and paint the upstairs all one colour Benjamin Moore (Muslin)

We have hardwood floors all on the main level. An up close picture of our beautiful unit. If you look closely you will see a mercury acorn in the bottom right door.
We haven't hung any pictures on the walls. That will be done in the new year. We had custom blinds made for all the rooms. My dh is going to make valances to go over them. It took forever to download these pics so I will post more tomorrow. Until then........
