I CAN'T KEEP A SECRET!!!

I TRULY WAS NOT GOING TO MENTION ANYTHING, NOT A SINGLE  LITTLE WORD,  ABOUT MY LATEST EPIPHANY!  TRULY

But, there is so much time before it happens that I will go nuts not talking about it.  I have nothing else on my mind..well almost nothing!

Yesterday our fabulous contractor, David, owner of Double D&D Remodeling,  stopped by with the latest info on our shower project.  Remember, we are having him tear out our soaking tub and shower that are in the Master Bath and replace them with  an eleven foot, walk-in shower.  The tiles that are on the floor will continue into the new space and up the wall to the ceiling.  A new water proof, privacy window will replace the existing one,  and an 8 foot glass wall will be installed .  (which will leave 3 feet to walk into the shower without needing a door). 



He will be doing the work the first week of September.   OH A LONG WAIT! A little set back.  He had a few health issues that he had to deal with, but now he's back on the job!  He is so good and in such demand!  When he drives down  the street,  the residents appear flying out their doors to ask him about a job they want done!  Really!!!

He grew up playing on the land that Del Webb  is now  building our Sun City Peachtree.  When finished, there will be over 3200 homes.  I love to tease him about when he was a boy  playing in these woods, he never imagined this would be the land on which  he would be making his living.

Back to my latest fantasy!   ---EPIPHANY---

For well over a year I have been trying to "arrange",  in my head,  the furniture in the Great Room to accommodate a French Door going out,  on to the Terrace.  I  picture the room opening up and flowing out.....so romantic and so so  "Southern"!!!  I know, I'm from Long Island, New York, not Savannah, Georgia!


My idea is to remove the center two windows and replace them with French Doors opening out.
Can't you just see it?

Finally, I got it......I GOT IT!
It was right there all along...basically just moving the sofa about a foot closer to the cocktail table and rearranging the chairs!  You can hardly tell!






An added bonus! Now the large "shelf", top of the lower cabinet, of the wall unit  has become  a Wine Center!  There is "power" in there.  We could put a small refrigerator for white wines. OH BOY, how clever is that?

The two center windows will be replaced with French Doors
Once more....I am in a WAITING mode....like it or not!

  3. That was a MAJOR epiphany Patty. I just love what you have planned and I'm such a sucker for french doors. Everyone will want to copy you but you will be the original.

  5. So exciting, Patty! Brilliant idea, my friend. The French doors will be so gracious, and allow direct access to the terrace.

  6. What a great idea Patty! That will be beautiful, and so nice to be able to go in and out right there. One of those things that will really bring the outdoors in; so nice!
