Much love for Jules

So I cannot tell you all what an inspiration my SIL, Jules, is to me.  Her house is PHENOMENAL.  Seriously, It is worthy of publication.  Anyhow.  I have been lucky enough to be on the receiving end of much advice and guidance on turning our house into a home.  I cannot tell you how grateful I am.  She has been kind enough to drive up here several weekends in a row to help me hang pictures, rearrange furniture and donate several treasures to my house beautifying.  I am falling in love with our house all over again!  I can see her potential again!  The icing on the cake is that my sweet hubby installed a chandelier I have had sitting in a box for five years, yup you read that right, five years.  So here are a few before and after pics of our work in progress.  Enjoy!

Dinning Room

I say ALMOST completed because I am still searching for more artwork and drapery.  Also the door frame to the kitchen needs to be painted and quarter round installation completed.  Oh and I am planning to have hubby install crown moulding in the Spring.

Family Room

Drapery coming soon!  Hoping to get a sofa, have our chairs reupholstered and build a mantel in the Spring.

Architectural salvage

I'm a big fan of architectural pieces.  This piece would be great as a focal point in a great room.  Sadly I don't have one nor a big enough car to bring this baby home...

Fabulous Finds

Sometimes I wonder if Cyn and I are not a little nutty??? After all who is crazy enough to stand in line outside in this bitter, cold Midwest winter just to scrounge for treasures at a local estate sale.  Although growing up, I had always wondered what the inside of this Georgian home looked like.  We endured the cold and three hours digging inside the house produced many thrifty chic purchases.  Needless to say, we were not disappointed.
