It has been a while. Life has been full and rich this past year. As Bill has started his new business, B2 Professional Coaching Services, I’ve taken on more painting work for Golden Paintworks, doing custom work, research and development in the commercial applications. Will finished Kindergarten in the spring and is starting first grade this week. We’ve been busy, and yet, we have still been working on the house. So there have been a few too many neglected posts. First, I wanted to catch you up on the Guest Room.
Finalized the guest room in the fall last year and had guests round the clock from September to December of 2016. We put up a sheetrock ceiling, because fixing a cracked ceiling every 2 years is too much work, even for us. Next, we smoothed out the walls with plaster, and taught Will how to do some of that work. I feel blessed that Bill can do the work and teach our son in the process.
After painting everything, wood work, ceiling, walls and even the floor, we put in a new ceiling fan, crown molding and furnished it. This furniture is from France; family friends brought it back to Missouri from Paris some years back for their daughter. When she couldn’t use it, they offered it to us and we swept it up quickly. I can’t imagine finding more perfect furniture for our house. I’m not sure of the year of these pieces, but the side table has a pee pot chamber, and the mirror has some fingerprints imbedded, which I love.
The room has been used quite a bit since we’ve finished, and we have plans for many more guests this fall. It really is the best time of year to come visit us. October here is stunning, perfect for pumpkin and apple picking and the leaves are more glorious than anywhere I’ve ever seen. Let us know when you want to visit. 😉
