Can Anyone Relate?

I have been wanting to post new house pics for the 'House Tour' tab, but came to the realization that my rooms are always in progress.  In progress meaning I keep changing things around or adding different elements.  Hubs and the boy are getting to the point that when I say, lets rearrange, they scatter...more like run.  Can anyone else relate to this problem?

An example being the living room:





These are examples of just one room, I don't even want to show the other rooms!  I counted four, four different coffee tables...whew, I have issues.

Sliding Door

We added a sliding door to the bathroom side to separate the bath from the 'dressing area'.

View from the Loo

We decided to use a closet track system as opposed to the barn door hardware I was drooling over.  The price difference made sense at this point.  We still need to 'hide' the hardware with a wood board, maybe a distressed barn board.

Little alcove between the bath and closet.  Planning on making a curtain for the window.

View into the closet area..

View from the closet into the bath.  On the right are the mirrored closet doors... As you can see we still need to finish the moulding, where the closet meets the ceiling, and finish the door frame.

The master plan (eventually) will be to tile the entire area, add a clawfoot tub, a new vanity or vanities.... whew, a lot still to do!

Wine, err Coat Rack

Wanted to get this fun project out there for you to see. Excuse the bad picture, I used my iPad to take the photo... As you can see we made a coat rack out of wine barrel staves, and the metal rings that keep the barrels together... And you know I use the word 'we' loosely ;)

Cabin Fever

I can't believe it's been since before Christmas that I posted anything. I seem to always find myself in a funk around this time of year. Winter=Cabin Fever.. And instead of taking this time to create, I get unmotivated and depressed. But no more! I have a bunch of projects I have planned... and I'm excited to share them with you soon;) So come on Mr. Sunshine, I know you're right around the corner..
