Welcome to our home!
The picture above is what we saw when we first walked in the front door. Notice the wall heater and parquet flooring. I immediately fell in love with the chandelier. You can see if you were to walk straight, you would run right into the den (or show room as Mary Margaret calls it because this is the room where she gets to watch shows).
Here is where the foyer flows into the living room.
Here is after we had chipped up all the parquet flooring. This is a "during" shot! Every room was the same shade of blue. All the ceilings were also this lovely shade of blue. Needless to say, we may never have a blue room after this restoration experience! I really wanted to paint our bedroom a blue/gray color but Michael adamantly refused after he had to paint all the blue walls and blue ceilings.
Finished product, well, almost finished product. We still need to put down shoe moulding, but it's coming, it's coming. I also want a circular rug for this room....eventually! All our walls are plaster which is why I have yet to hang anything anywhere. I know that wherever I hang something, it must stay there. Plaster walls can be a pain! Do you like this ornate mirror above the foyer credenza?? This credenza was Michael's Mom's. I want to paint it the Million Dollar Red color and distress it a bit, but Michael refuses. Have you noticed that he likes to be involved in every aspect of the decorating process!
