BEFORE AND AFTER BOULDER #PROJECTFIELDCOURT

By // No comments:





The Boulder Project.  I'm really sorry it's over.  I had to leave before I could move everything an inch or so.....finish that last layer with some plants and get some perfect detail shots.

For me that was hard.....it was my baby for 3 months....consuming my thoughts. 

Today I have some of the real estate shots along with my iphone pics to share.  You know how the real estate shots are.....wide angle with all the lights on!

A floor plan of the main level for reference.



 Here is an original real estate shot of the living area
After of the same area....real estate shot.




Just a coat of paint [BM White Dove] in here really....the chairs are from Target.

Most of this furniture we used in the last project!  
All the pillows above are from Target.



The coffee table was ordered online from Target.  It was a breeze to put together [that is how I rate things now after that last experience with the Target console!] and I really liked it!


Target pillows.  Ikea sofa.
I love these HomeGoods vases....trying to keep everything kind of organic with neutral colors.

Here is another before shot of the family room....
 You can see we split the room because it was so large.

Took down the bookcases and added shiplap.



We added the shelf for convenience....to hold some wine or bread while dining!  




And that large wall.....well we needed art on the fly and cheap!  

So I got busy with some paint and white paper.


I know....original art is always better but this is staging people!


The table was from Target...not sure it is available any more.  The chairs are from Overstock.  Light fixture from Rejuvenation.

Real Estate shot.

Before real estate shot.  There was the closet as you walked in the front door.

And this was behind the wall.  The dining room was previously  located in this space.  In my opinion I did not want to see the DR table first thing after walking in the front door.

I know what you are thinking.....what do you do with that space now?  It's right off the kitchen....maybe the kids play while you are cooking dinner....maybe it's a good space to entertain....I love the open feeling of it.

Before
After



The iron divider is my favorite thing.

You can see through to the sunroom that was used for a sitting area.  It had a grill and we believe that it might have been a screened in porch at one time.





We decided to use it as a dining area.  

Had some Schumacher wallpaper left over from the last project!  Just enough :)



Real Estate shot.  The mirror got hung!


Table from Pier One.  Bar cart from Target. Chairs from Overstock.

The foyer....

After the door was painted.....

This is the color which you can see better from the outside.

Before of the outside area....
After the new wood was put up.

Painted.....white.



I'll have more on Friday....the bathrooms and kitchen!

Maybe they will be nice and send me some more finished shots......

Y'all it's been raining for 3 days and I am starting to listen to sad music.

Spring in the Boathouse Conservatory

By // No comments:



After a couple of beautiful summery days
we went back to a cold windy spring day
here todaybut no matter because it was
   lovely here in the Boathouse conservatory.


The Conservatory is facing south
           and at the back of our little Boathouse.



It is a good place to enjoy tea
and some journal writing.

Violas in a basket.


This coming week I will start hardening
these plants off so they can stay outdoors
soon but for now I am enjoying them here.





                                                                         


I hope you enjoyed visiting in the  conservatory
today. I am amazed how how the garden popped
this week so I will have to take you on a little
garden tour soon. 

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend
and thank you for visiting me!
