Out From Under My Rock

I am out from under my rock and I have aged a few years....

Where I have been:








I do miss my personal dumpster.



This is what we have accomplished:


It's getting there.

Laundry:


Everything looks yellow but it's not.  And hey,  finally did the animal print thing!


We switched to all LED lighting and love it.  Now finding dimmers for certain locations, was a bitch. They either flickered or hummed.  All construction workers can not see or hear.  I think we went through five different dimmers until I was finally happy.


Not sure who the kid on the trike is.  I am getting a large print made as we speak to replace the little snot.


Hunter made me drying racks.  Bring on the jealousy.


Mudroom:


I used SW Accessible Beige on the walls and SW sealskin on the doors.  So happy with both.
Again, looks yellow.


I am in the process of getting fabric swatches for the bench seat.


Also awaiting a mirror for above cabinet.


Half Bath:


A bit tough to photograph but hopefully you get the idea.  I used the same tile from my master bath remodel from earlier in the year.


Hunter has found the guest towel holder a perfect place for his reading glasses and pen.

Master Bath:



A bird wanted in badly.  See his imprint on the window?  No sign of him outside so I hope he survived.

I am now waiting patiently for window shades and furniture.  Okay, maybe not patiently, but waiting!

  1. It all looks great- love the wall with the television, perfect for display and so interesting. Yes I am jealous of those drying racks! Good one Hunter.
    Such a lot of work hey? And trying to get the details right (dimmers aarrghh) is the real test of the nerves.
    I'm just getting around to having some window treatments done for the foyer and landings now, I crapped out on our reno by about April but I have the interest/energy for it again.
    Our neighbours loved the work we had done so much they hired our team, they've been in full reno mode for two months and I'll tell you it's fun to watch from afar, now that we're not the ones knee deep in dust and rubble.
    Thanks for sharing, I missed your posts. XO

    1. i am glad to be over all this s. I felt like we took three steps forward, one step back. Today they came to pressure wash everything. I came home to water leaking through my breakfast bay light. WTF?! Sigh. But it is beautiful.

  2. It looks amazing. I just love the sitting area and that amazing art work.
    Those drying racks are perfection. Atta boy Hunter! We just had the exterior of the house painted and new gutters installed. Hubby re-did the roof on the shed-but now we're over it. I ordered new house numbers, but finding a mailbox for under $300 has been a bitch.
    What a gorgeous home you have. So happy for your beautiful renovations.

    1. I usually drape my sweaters across everything. Saw the drying racks on Pinterest and asked my handy if he thought he was up to it. They came out just as I imagined and just in time for sweater weather.

    1. Thanks baby. I have tried to keep up with everyone else but found most of my time was either spent in Emily's room is or over at the office. We actually lived at the office for four nights while the floors were refinished. Not as bad as I thought.

    1. We now have to clean out the garage so it can be painted. Should we just paint over the bugs?

    1. Thanks! The most difficult decision was the wood stain. We did good.

  6. This is fabulous! Did you invent those drying racks?? I have a food dehydrator with racks, but has never occurred to me to stack up racks for clothes. Brilliant! We may have the same 12x18 tile in our bath, grey porcelain resembling stone? What a lot of coordination and imagination-- good for you!

    1. I saw the racks on Pinterest...Hunter ad lived a bit. I am very happy with all my picks. I erred on the kitchen breakfast light though. Forgot I only have 8' ceilings and my globe just didn't work. Returned, new fixture..it works.

    1. Your welcome. I became addicted to Houzz...warning you now if you are not familiar...worse than Pinterest. The beautiful art work is from a glass artist named Kathleen Mulcahy, purchased through Echt Gallery in Chicago. It is striking when I sit in my tub, wine in hand, dimmed lights reflecting off "water" droplets. Love.

  8. From what I could gather on my phone, it looks wonderful and glad you're back. Sorry we missed each other during your recent visit. Were you at the waldorf again? Details please, when dust clears.

  10. Gorgeous! Love those drying racks. Ugly jealousy from over here, my friend. I had a problem with my LEDs burning out and the culprit was halogen dimmers too. Who knew? And yes, I was the only one who could see the problem too. It must be lovely to be so close to the finish line!
