SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW

The past few weeks I have been watching as my living room has been transformed. We took out old sliding doors and windows and replaced them with french doors and more attractive and more efficient windows. The man doing the work also added wider trim around two doors and another set of windows in the living room. The painters came in and everything became whiter and brighter! We haven't got the furniture and decor all back in place yet, but what an improvement! We actually thought we would rebuild the fireplace at a different time, but a couple coats of white paint and it is a huge improvement there also. Oh, and I painted the front door red! I love that too! (I forgot to put a grid between the photos so they kind of blennnd...but you know!)

We have more work ahead of us. Now we are dealing with the issue of wood floors. There are so many types that we are overwhelmed. We want really dark floors, kind of distressed or handscraped wide planks. Any advice from someone who has done this with happy results? I want brands and colors! Solid, or engineered? I am grabbing for a life-line here! Too many choices!
In the course of cleaning and refreshing my surroundings I decided to hang these wonderful old photos of my grandparents in my bedroom. I wish I could get a photo of the effect of how they look in the room, but that didn't work so well. I had to take quilts of the wall to make room, but I am pleased with the results. My mother always had both of these hanging together and I loved that, but space would not permit in this case. Above is my grandfather, Celo Chambers, and his little brother. They lived in Punxsutawney, PA. 
This photo is of my grandmother, Mary Payne (Chambers), and her brothers, John and Billy Payne from Mt. View, Alberta, Canada. Aren't they delightful! These three have their names on my Ancestor Quilt that I have discussed in previous blogs. It is difficult trying to get a picture of a photo behind glass. these are both large photos and I didn't want to remove them from the ancient frames. I was able to get good shots by taking the picture from a bit of an angle so the flash didn't glare off the glass.

Thanks for stopping by, and come back again for something quilty, if that is what you are after!

Those are such wonderful family pictures, Marcie. I have been seeing some floors on a French blog that I would do in a heartbeat if they went with my house style. The wooden boards are angled like a braid in one 45-degree slant and the next one goes in the opposite slant. It looks sooooo cool and old.

Ohhh how exciting. All of that wonderful light. Isn't white paint great! And your red door, truly welcoming and cheerful. As to floors, I can strongly suggest the titanium finish. Since my floors don't have it, when I moved a bench last week I ended up with a long scratch which I now have to fix. I'm learning to put rugs under everything.

LOVE the new doors!

Kelli said...

Love the room! The improvements look great and how special to have your family pictures - what a treasure!

Sue said...

Your room looks great! Isn't it nice giving a house a face lift? We've been doing that for the last ten years!

Happy Mother's Day!

Oh, this is just beautiful! I can't help on the hardwoods as I've only done wood laminate (I would never do that again either). Love the pictures. I have pictures of my ancestors up from time to time also. I've also hung a picture of my little sister (11x14) from time to time. She passed away when she was 4 and I was 5. It's the cutest picture. Maybe you've inspired me that it's time to hang it again! Have a very happy mother's day!

WOW!~Lucky you! So NICE! My brother does hardwood floors. Imports the wood from S.America and he's so fabulous, but lives in St. Augustine, FL :( Hed prob. travel! :)
You are going to be all set in your home without having to ever do anything again! GREAT NEWS!
LOVE the photos! thanks for sharing. :)

Libby said...

Gosh, I wish I could help with the flooring questions. When we did our kitchen we just tried to match existing wood in the house. I would have probably gone another direction entirely . . . . but needed to bring some reason to the project somewhere *s*

The family pictures are great. What a treasure to have in your home!

Light and bright! Amazing what a difference more light makes, isn't it...love your family portraits, they are wonderful.
