Finally!!! The Dining Room Reveal!!! …
Way back in 2012 you all may remember that I posted about the starting of a major redecoration project here at Fox Paw Lodge that would garner a new dining room, which had been non-existent for a couple of year. Well I am very happy to announce that the project has been completed. So lets begin with a little refresher. Here we have the once home office in midst of deconstruction with the closet being opened to form an alcove. All stately homes have an alcove (wink).
Entering from the living room you can see the new hardwood floor "J" and I installed. And I was pleasantly surprised how fast the floor went into place once we got started on it in earnest. The walls are painted a wonderful shade of taupe, which gets deeper and more dramatic as evening falls.
Next we look back to the left of the room after entering.
And finally, a closer look at the "alcove" with its buffet in place. Displayed on the buffet is the FPL "Tulip Vase" collection. I love these vase, even when not holding tulips they are interesting to look at.
Well that pretty much wraps that project up, now only six more rooms to go. It a toss up between the living room and the gathering room as to which will be done first. I feel it is going to be the living room since the progression of painting started in the dining room now make the paint in the living room look tired and worn, wait it is tired and worn!!!
Will I guess that’s a wrap on this post. And by the by the new satellite connection makes the up loading of pictures much faster. Now you all are going to have to suffer through looking a my photography in volume (wink). Take care. – gary
