House Stuff
Work in my Michigan home is moving right along. So far I have: had custom cabinets built, had the basement finished into a bedroom suite, entertainment/home theatre area and utility room/dye studio, new floor through out the upstairs, the guest bedroom painted blue and the guest bath painted yellow.

We are down to the big jobs- right now my kitchen/dining room/ living room and hall are being given "the treatment." I can't just say painted because that does not do justice to what is going on. The walls have been textured and are now being painted. Then they will have a glaze applied. Select walls are getting a faux treatment to look like stone. Once all of this is done, the finishing touch will be granite counters in the kitchen and matching windowsills (because the dog has torn up the wooden ones so I might as well replace those at the same time as the kitchen so it all goes together).

Anyway, here we go:







These all show the texture that has been added to most of the walls.









And here we have the base coat of colour going on. The gold in the kitchen and hall are closest to the actual colour. It's called "toasted sesame seed." Leave it to me to pick a colour with a food name.

You can see the texture portion of the faux treatment in some of the pics.....doesn't even begin to give you the feel of how it will look when it's done!!

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
