Yes, MC finished my wall shelves. I have been going in circles moving things around. I "think" I have arrived at the "First" Premier Viewing!" Since, I'm me, you realize it will be different at the drop of a hat! oops....just moved a picture, need to shoot a retake. OK, we can proceed!
Not going to reveal it that quickly. I have to build this up a little. Make it appear like it's a huge event!
I figure I will start with the floor plan of the Bucket List House. That will give you an idea of the space that is involved. It's a small area, at the end of the kitchen.....8' x 10'4"....that's it! It's called NOOK!
Sherry, when I saw your sophisticated use of "Captions", I begged MC to work on them with me. I also played with the idea of inserting those great "arrows" that the pro-bloggers use. MC informed me he had to do that little bit of ingenious on his computer, not mine, so he's working on it now.
He just told me he got it, and he has inserted it below.....AAAAH he is so clever, Master Computerman!
I think we've had five (5) different light fixtures! Pretty sure, yes five, that's counting the one that came with the house....that lasted a week!
I need to take a minute now to go search in my wealth of old pictures of the previous ways the NOOK has looked. Be back in a jiff!
Move in Day-----Builders Light Fixture
There was a fabulous light fixture next. It lasted one day. It blew the circuit breaker. Fixture now in a Historic Victorian home in Danville, Va. Some genius was able to make it work. Believe me, IT WAS COOL!
This look was fun.
This worked until the light fixture stopped working!
Love my crystal ball fixture! It came from Overstock.com and is identical to a Pottery Barn original
Oh brilliant idea....we switched tables. The round glass table is now in our "formal" :) Dining Room!
Another great idea.... bring the "outside chairs....inside" Set up for a little Dolcetto fun party!
That gorgeous clock stopped working. We took it down and had no idea what to replace it with! After staring at a blank wall for a month, we took it back. We had it for over a year!!!! The store gave us a brand new one!!! I'm still amazed at that Customer Service.....Pier 1, you are great!
We are almost finished with the "history"!
The outside sofa didn't work. It was shedding it's paint and had to go back outside! That left the two chairs, which I loved in the room. I didn't quite know what to do with two chairs at the 8' x 30 " table? Then....the Epiphany came....make the table a DESK! I would love to have a desk to write my blog and take care of all our Dolcetto Social doings. I could have all my "stuff" handy! We could still use the chairs for breakfast and then use the round glass table in the "Formal" dining room for dinner!
Moved everything around. My SIL was here and said I needed a lamp on the table to make it look more "desky".....Found one in use elsewhere which of course started a huge "domino" effect around here...another story altogether! Put the lamp on the "desk"! It looked great, but blocked the clock that was now the new clock that was WORKING!
So.....back to blank wall. Clock moved to wall behind MC's desk. With a flip of my head, I got it!!!! Another fantastic Epiphany! MC could construct some shelves for the space.
That was two weeks ago.
Are you ready!
This is looking towards the new Office from the Foyer
Here we are.....IN MY OFFICE!
This entire project was the work of MC----------including the photography and the clever, oh so clever captions and arrow inserts. Thanks Hon...
