Heads or Tails *In The House*


One of my favorite bloggers, Skittles has started a Tuesday meme. It is LOTS of fun-so you'll wanna join us right away! If you click on the Heads or Tails logo - it will take you to the post to tell you more about the meme.

This week's topic is Heads - Any part of (or place in) a house.

This post probably won't be what you are expecting. You'll be required to use your imagination in order to fully appreciate this post. You see...

This will eventually be my new kitchen (complete with dishwasher)...

And this will be my new bedroom (Yes, I can call it mine, because my husband doesn't usually sleep in the bedroom).
Now, as I said, you must use your imagination. It really will be nice. My kitchen will have cornices over the windows (My daddy made the cornices for me), and they will be covered with a wallpaper border featuring a cow/barn/silo scene. I also purchased for my husband, the collection of Bonnie Mohr dairy cow collector plates - she is an amazingly talented artist. So, those plates will be displayed and tie in wonderfully with the border on the cornices.

The bedrooms' cornices will have a wallpaper border featuring a sunset scene with sheep in a pasture. The bathroom, which I couldn't get a photo of, will have the most awesome curtains. You see, before we moved, my dad's girlfriend surprised me with these curtains. They have lily pads, cattails, and dragonflies on them. They were intended to remind me of fishing with my dad, and that is exactly what they do each time I see them. Since she made them, we've been collecting little fishing/dragonfly/etc items to hang from the curtains' tiebacks.

So, that's the addition I keep referring to. Excuse me while I get technical... I've been checking my software, and I've concluded that at approximately ... ummmm. Eventually, my bathroom will have four walls and heat again (I hope)... we'll have closets (wooohooo)... we'll have the proper insulation and doors (and our electric bill will go down - serious woooohooooo)... and... well, you get the idea. :-)

A project like this is exciting whilst it's being done but it's fabulous when it's finished! Can't wait to see it finished.

D...

I know you are so excited! It's going to look great!

BTW, do you have a pic of your house with the hole in it? I need to visualize when you say you have to go outside to get to your bathroom. ;)

Sher :)

Isn't remodeling fun!?! But you'll love it when it's finished. Can't wait to see it.

I'll see the finished product next year and I can't wait!

Shup.. yeah.. I played. LOL

peppylady

Wow hope it goes fast the building of it.
I have trouble sizing up things when there no dry wall is up.
But I bet it will be nice when it done.
Sure hope you have better luck with your dishwasher then I did.
My heads and tail is up

Shan

Ah, the joy of building. Isn't it fun? we had our house built a couple of years ago and we are getting ready to finish our basement, so I fully appreciate your pictures. And I can see it all in my head--it will be lovely!

Mike

It looks to me as it probably should look at this stage of construction. It will look much different and be the way you want it to look when it's finished. I think it will be well worth it when it's all done :)

Mica

Our house is also under construction. Ours is much smaller though.

Dianne

It must be so frustrating to live under construction!

But it sounds like it will be lovely, the curtains sound wonderful.

Carrie Smith

Your house looks like mine...lots of renovations. Can't wait to see the kitchen when it's finished!

Stacey @Real World Mom

How exciting!! I hope you'll keep us posted on progress with more pics! :-)

There's an award on my page for you!

Marcia

It is not just the new rooms that are exciting, but the pieces of your family that will be in there as constant reminders. You must be so excited.

Andrée

You'll keep us up to date on progress, right? It's going to be fun seeing it shape up!

Travis

Ugh. I have a kitchen and bathroom to do, and floors too.

I'm looking forward to it, but not the the mess and time it's going to take. Plus, I'm not handy so I won't be able to do a lot myself.
