We recently saw how nicely the bathroom turned out. However, some folks have been wondering what is the point of featuring a window that must be “covered” in order to keep shower water from spraying on it and the surrounding wood trim and also “hidden” behind a shower curtain.
Well, I had ideas to help overcome both these problems. It just took me a little time to get the items needed to pull this off. Here’s the final product . . .
Voila! This is a “hookless” bubble curtain. This way, the red window is visible when the curtain is drawn across the tub.
Here’s a closeup. Pretty neat, huh?
And now for the living room makeover . . .
This is the living room/front door taken from the dining room entrance before we touched a thing.
And here it is after . . . removing old curtains, painting all the trim and walls, and adding a couple rugs. Amazing, yes?
Here’s the view from the front door of the living room, looking toward the dining room before.
And here’s the same view after the cleaning and painting.
And for those of you who want to look forward (Deloutre) look on into the dining and compare the two photos. I realize the dining room looks very organized in the “before” photo. That is because renovations had not yet begun, and the little table had not yet become our “tool bench”.
In the “after” photo, some things are missing. You have to look very closely. Who can tell me two things that are missing in the dining room photo?
Well, friends, what do you think so far? I’m very pleased how the living room turned out. Thanks to Handy Friend, who helped out on this project and will definitely get to spend the night in The Cypress Cottage.
COMING SOON: Dining Room and Bedroom renovations having to do with something very interesting . . .
The Miller and his sawmill . . .

and some very special wood–so special that they warrant a post all their own coming soon!
