Mantle in master almost done being primed
Part of master bedroom shaping up
My bathroom taking shape
The middle panel will have mirror.....
Deciding between antiqued mirror or plain, am going to add rosettes.
Paint looks very yellow here it is NOT. This is the future full length mirror
They did a great job on the molding (looks very yellow for some reason)
Final cabinet color, left side no glaze, right side subtle pale gray glaze, am going to go with the glazed version to give it a little depth and pick up the marble veining..thoughts?

FIG AND OLIVE RESTAURANT IN NYC. Had relatives in from out of town and we were in the city, having a ball. Its been so long since I have gone out for the day like that and it was fun! I discovered a fabulous new restaurant and cannot recommend it highly enough, between the fun, elegant, upbeat and vibrant vibe to the fantastic, perfectly seasoned food served from an open kitchen, all in an incredible space with soaring ceilings, awesome service..this place rocked!! I cannot wait to go back! In case you are near NYC, or visiting its a must visit. Click here to visit their website.
A GREAT CHARGER. Don't you love the way a great charger adds so much to a table setting?

Here are a few i think are great looking......
A FEW LAST MINUTE SURPRISES! Hot off the presses! They just finished (just about) installing the countertops in the pantry, and I am loving them! Also the inside the cabinet lighting in the kitchen, it was getting dark and my camera had run out of battery so pardon my Iphone camera quality but you get the idea!!
So thats the low down over here!! Plenty more to come. Thanks to everyone for following along and your kind and encouraging comments and emails. Means so much. Wishing everyone a very happy day!
