Kitchen Reveal

Hello Dear Readers!

Today I am finally revealing the kitchen.

I know, you are probably saying that it

is about time. You can’t believe how many times

I have arranged and re-arranged this area.

Not being totally satisfied with what I have done.

Until…my hubby mentioned that it was “too white”

Where’s the color that you love?

That was it … I needed to add more color.

So here we go … my Kitchen Reveal.

Hickory Cottage Guest Room Reveal

Hello Dear Readers!

I thought that it was time to show you

more of the Guest Room. It is probably

one of the few rooms that is somewhat complete

with the exception of the window treatments

and one piece of art that is waiting

to be framed.

The windows are wide open so controlling

the light was difficult.

Welcome to the Hickory Cottage Guest Room!

The Hickory Cottage Sunroom Reveal (for now)

Hello Dear Readers!

I have been up to my eyeballs in boxes and

packing paper (still) and trying my best to work

with one room at a time; however, it has

been a bit difficult as there are still

many boxes that need to be unpacked.

I worked on the sunroom.

You could not see the floor as it was truly

covered with furniture, boxes, and orphaned

accessories. However, I got through it!
