First of all, I must show you some carpet pictures.  It simply would not be fair to you, reader, for me, the writer, to be remiss in my carpet exhibition for one moment longer.  You have been more patient that anyone expected you to be.

Let's get down to business!


CARPET!  That is what it is! Fully installed around all the edges and everything.  What carpet can do to a room is magical.

Here are more carpet pics:


As you can see, the second the carpet was down we started cluttering the room up with stuff.  Classic us!

And here is the Master Bedroom, filled with Businessmen, large and small:


 Moving On.

They have finished painting downstairs.  Which means finished ceiling and trim, and primed walls.  So everything looks very white.



But here is the mudroom, where you can actually see the floor.


Despite what they say, it is actually FLOORING that makes a house a home.  Well, flooring and cute little businessmen.


With the professionals finished and out of the way, it was time for ME to step in and wreak a little havoc of my own.  Here is my wall of test colors.


I know.  They all look the same in that picture.   My builder recommended Sherwin Williams, and I am nothing if not obedient.  The colors I was choosing between were, from left to right:

Mindful Gray, Alpaca, Essential Gray, and Requisite Gray.  

And I, I chose Requisite Gray.  But now, looking at this picture, it seems like the paint color I chose was the same color as the drywall itself.  I should have just left it bare and saved myself WEEKS.  Live and learn.

So here is the Kitchen/Great Room, fully painted.


That is the lovely Fae you see in the picture there.  It was her handiwork that gave us such nice clean lines along the ceiling.  My sisters Fae and Faralee were so nice to come and help me paint and now my kitchen is ready for cabinets.  This picture really doesn't do the color justice.  It is lovely.  To me.  I lovely it.  

But speaking of cabinets, the cabinet maker, Armand, hurt his back.  Poor Guy. He is ok, just down for the count.  Or something.  I don't know yet if that is going to set him back days, or weeks, or months, but it is safe to say, that the cabinets won't be going in this week like I hoped.
Say Lah-vee.
