In between packing now, I find myself all over the net looking for inspiration.
Remember when I mentioned that I would love to have French Doors in the new dining room?
Well here's a pair I'm in love with - from Home Depot
This is only on the list for next summer - so plenty of time to change my mind - but it's kind of where I'm leaning
I've also decided that the room to the left of the hallway ( left in the photos - but actually to the right when standing in the entrance way ) will have french doors installed - to replace those horrid panes of interior windows that are currently there - and allow easy access to the room ( it currently has a door around the corner )
Originally I thought of just dry walling it - but french doors will work much better - and will look pretty from the living room - AND will allow more light into the living room -
In our last home we had 6 french doors installed - all in solid oak - they cost a fortune - and lesson learned -
after about a year or so I wanted to paint them and John went ballistic because of the cost involved in buying oak - and he had a point -
Soooo - it will be a cheaper version this time around - something I'll feel no guilt at all about painting!
Since the opening is wider than 2 doors - I may have a panel on either side like the photo below - I absolutely LOVE that these slide - especially for a small home where doors opening and closing can become a " space " issue
Did I mention that I'm taking my 3 chandeliers with me? You were supposed to remind me NOT to take them ( HERE ) but no one did - and I forgot - and well, they're coming with me - so one of them will reside
over the dining room table once again
I may have to have them shortened slightly - although the ceilings in the new house are taller than average - they are in no way as tall as the windows in my Victorian Flat...................
Oh and I've lost my purse - seriously - don't know if it got accidently packed at this point - but can't find it anywhere - and we're off to the notary today - where I have to show identification - and which is all in the missing purse :)
So far it's not in the entry way
or the dining room
or off the hallway
Where's Suzan today?
At the hairdressers getting this mane of hair completely cut off
Because I don't see me having any time to take care of it in the forseeable future
Oh and at the notary - without any indentification - other then John saying - Trust me - it's her - there's not another out there ( hopefully )
Have a wonderful weekend everyone -
