Open House Part 4

The tour continues! I gave you a peek of the kitchen in Part 1 and now it's clean enough that I can share the rest of it with you ;o)

First up is the cooking area -


This is DH's domain. We invested in a propane/gas stove and so far, I haven't blown up the house ;o) But then again, I don't do a lot of the cooking. LOL!

If you go to the left of the picture, that will take you to the half bathroom and my stitching room :o) To the right of the picture, is the dining room and patio doors that lead out to the deck.

Here is the clean up area -


See those cacti? DH and I grew them from seeds when we first met. He says when they die, then so does our marriage. I've been trying to kill those things for years now but they're quite resilient! I guess that says something ;o)

Now that we have our new furniture, I can show you those rooms as well. They're not complete by any means so they're a bit sparse.

Take a view of our new living room -


I LOVE this furniture! Looks like leather doesn't it? It's not :o) They call it a 'leather-like' fabric.

We'll need to add some color to this room -


So far I've added The Quiltmaker. Hey, it's a start!

Finally we have our new 'media' room -


DH and I took the third bedroom, removed the closet, and now it's our new room where we veg after a long day :o)

Here is my side of the sofa -


This is THE perfect sofa. DH has a recliner on his side and I have a chaise on mine. It's a win-win situation :o) If you're wondering what that piece of wood is that's up in the air, it's actually the arm of a lamp. I found this table at an antique store in town. DH just needs to re-wire it and I'm good to go. I even bought an Ott-Lite bulb for it so my original Ott-Lite can stay in my stitching room.

Ahhhhh...notice that I have not put up pictures of my stitching room yet. I guess you're just going to have to wait around and see ;o)

Wow, these rooms are lovely just like the rest of your home!

Alberta said...

Cathey, you have created a very warm and welcoming home! Looks like everything is falling into place! I'm sure that is due to hard work and not just good luck. Wishing you & DH many happy years in this piece of heaven.

Cindy said...

Your house looks awesome :)

JOLENE said...

Lookin' good. Want to come clean my house while I stitch, or I could decorate yours while you clean mine. Deal? The recliner looks like a perfect place to stitch and watch movies. Fun!

Irene said...

Lovely, can't wait to see the stitching room.

Kathryn said...

Simply lovely. What a nice house.

I can't wait until my boys are grown some more and I can revamp some of our living areas...mainly the basement into the "media room" so that I can stitch upstairs in my current living room/media room without three gumbling males!

Jennifer said...

Your house looks just so nice and relaxing - very comfortable! I love the color choices for the media room.

And if you ever need a cactus killed, I am your girl. I have the WORST luck with cacti - they just die on me no matter what I do with them. The only ones I can grow are the christmas cactus ones.

Again, I repeat myself. Can I move in?

Your house absolutely gorgeous. I decorate very similar, so of course I love it! :)

Sharon said...
