More Guest House

Today the blinds for the great room should be installed. The windows are very low so we raised the shelves over them so they will appear to have better proportion when the brown and camel match stick blinds are added. Our friend Sarah just installed them in her work room and when we saw them we decided they would be just the ticket to expand the windows and add more texture. The color will bring the floor color up higher and tie things together nicely we hope.
If you want you can go to Dana's blog and read more about our shabby Lady lamp that is on the half wall that divides the sun porch from the great room. We debated about putting bar stools her and decided that it would be best left open.

Here's a picture of a couple of chairs in the sun room. We are still deciding if we should put blinds on these windows or not. The view is pretty but in the evening it does get a bit over exposed.

Dana has pictures of the counter tops and the farm sink on her blog and will continue to post progress pictures as things develop. Thanks for coming along with us as we put together this fun little house. Dana did a good job of designing the renovation and arranging for everything. I had a good time just coming in for the fun part of picking out the furnishings and installing them with her.

Hope you are enjoying the Guest House journey with us as much as we have enjoyed hearing from all of you.

Hugs,

Sue
