Each and every project mentioned in this thread has my wish list growing. Where else can I troll a thread containing such diverse talents (aside from the combined rest of this board of course lol)?! The creativity is awesome - dollmakers who painstakingly insert itty bitty hairs into scalps, quilt artists who cut up perfectly good fabric in order to sew it back together, spinners, stencilers, recyclers, ... the list is endless. It is exciting and inspiring.
My ME-list might be changing somewhat. You see, there is a house that was sitting all empty and abandoned. Roomy, with a bit of yard for the kidlets, not in the city, and in need of TLC. After a lengthy buying process, we became official owners and have begun the task (tasks! many, many tasks!) of renovating. At the moment there are no "after" pics but there are some "befores." Without further ado, please meet my new project:
This bowed window is 12 feet wide by 6 feet tall. It cannot be replaced because window manufacturers only make up to 117 inches wide these days. In order to replace, it would need modified into multiple smaller sized windows grouped together.
We are doing the kitchen walls in a sort of minty retro-ish green. We love the woodwork of the stairs and are trying to match the cupboard stain to the golden oak of the stairs.
These are bedroom pics, before the carpet was pulled up. We planned to paint and replace the carpet.
However, we were thrilled to discover beautiful hardwood floors underneath the carpet! Gorgeous, thick, real hardwood floors - not prefabricated layment or fancy, easy care stuff. Pics to follow soon. And work. Lots and lots of work.
Suggestions appreciated. Thanks for looking
