New Life for an Old Broad!

Just look at her ~

She's a new woman!

It's been a long hot summer
and this reno took way longer than I ever dreamed it would.
(see previous post)
I'm pretty proud of the way she came through the transformation,

but now Hubs is insisting that I do the leaves too!  arggh.
I don't know if I have it in me....maybe next week!


  1. BEAUTIFUL! You did an awesome job!

  2. I love it, and that awesome stone fireplace in the background is outstanding. Hope you can sit down and enjoy it now.

  3. It's very pretty, and makes a fresh design statement. Your hard work paid off! Well done! (Leave those leaves until later.)

  4. LOVE IT! I think the black brings a great contrast to all of the other wood (the bar bottom, the floors, the bannister to the basement). Looks more sleek. SO worth all of your hard work!!

  5. Love it! Can't wait to sit at it soon! Good job, MB!

  6. Oh it looks so great. You did such an amazing job!!


"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." Ralph Waldo Emerson
