I went to let my little girl dog Bonnet out to do her business
and this little lady was having her dinner.

 She stayed out there for quite a while, always cautious but enjoying her feast. As she was leaving I saw her buddy in the trees. I think they pretty much always travel in groups. At least around here.

Kitchen Remodel before and after

My friend wanted a before and after from the same position.

After from the same position
Big difference!

Dining Room Remodel

We finished the dining room remodel! At least the part that is part of the kitchen. If you look closely in this picture you can see that the little nook with the china cabinet in it is not finished. That is next on the long list of projects.


We had to remove all the wallpaper and wainscoting then float out all the various imperfections, which took forever.
But we finally got it done. It's not perfect but neither are we.

 We widened both the doorways and had to patch the floors in those areas. Probably the easiest of everything.
We installed the new light which matches the lights in the kitchen.

At the moment it is my favorite room
in the house. But then that changes weekly.
It was a lot of work but well worth it.
