Detail Mania!

Lots of new stuff has happened in a short period of time, so I’ll just get straight to the photos.

I hesistate to show this, because the walls look so terrible with only the first coat of paint. but I really want to show off Bruce's wonderful interpretation of Dad's design.
I hesistate to show this, because the walls look so terrible with only the first coat of paint. But I really want to show off Bruce's wonderful interpretation of Dad's design for my powder bathroom vanity. The top is made of Paulownia wood and the club foot is made of Maple. This will be the home for my skull tiles and rock sink.

The bane of Tim's existance -- my breakfast bar. It had high moisture content, it was warped, it was cracked... you name it, this piece of wood had it. But I love it and it's a memory from my friend, James Cooper.

But I love it and it's a memory from my friend, James Cooper. Tim made it work for me with lots of epoxy and sanding and smashing. All that's left is the finish, and I'll be able to appreciate it for years to come. Also, Joel Stickler started hanging my light fixtures. I've been collecting them for over a year, so it's really neat to see them finally going into place.
The counters went in today! The perimeter along the wall is grey Silestone. It's a quartz that has anti-microbial qualities.

This is an awful picture of the island. I hope to get a better one soon. It's called Ice Blue Granite, and it has lots of sparkly, frosty specs in it.

  1. Wonderful, wonderful! Can’t wait to see all of this in
    person. I can imagine how much work is involved in getting to this point! Love it and love you, Anna!

  2. I want to tell you, also, that I think that woodwork is phenomenal! The blue countertops are a thing of beauty and
    very different. I will wait to see the rest of the powder room since you have just begun with that..right? Your dad said you would be painting it brown and the bench shown in the picture is very interesting but I haven’t figured it ou yet…???? Your light fixtures are perfect! Congrats again, Anna B.
