Finishing touches!

on September 18, 2012

With the completion of the hardwood floors and drywalling, we are finally able to add some finishing touches……upstairs anyways! We still have baseboard trim, doors and painting to do but we’re excited to have the bulk of the dirty work done. Appliances have been installed successfully thanks to the Chief Electrical and Plumbing Engineer, Randy; he had some hiccups but he persevered and the results are amazing!

High efficiency washer & dryer installed in the new upstairs closet (previous location was the basement)

The dishwasher & refrigerator (two days installing the dishwasher and a hundred trips to Home Hardware…but that’s ANOTHER story!) But the good news is the fridge has a built in icemaker…..no more messy ice cube trays!

 Furniture shopping is pretty lean around here so we had to improvise……its called Kijiji Halifax. We found this terrific wrought iron (heavy duty) set for the kitchen at a fraction of the cost of a new set. Notice the blueberry placemats, starfish and sand dollar napkin rings and lighthouse salt and pepper shakers….all courtesy of eBay. The piece of pottery was a wedding gift from Leanne’s cousin Pat.

How did we get this set home from Halifax? Well, the Hondizer with home made roof rack of course……….watch out Clampetts!

Topped off the kitchen window over the sink with these pretty shell curtains. When the wind blows, they clink and Bandit jumps!

The Bluenose Schooner and picture of a Newfoundland lighthouse were gifts from Randy’s son, Richard, for our bedroom fireplace.

Kinda puts to shame our adaptation of a fireplace in the livingroom since we can’t seem to find anyone to install one (did we mention the cost???) We call it our sailboat wine rack fireplace!

Time to start on downstairs………..sigh. At least we have something to do the next few rainy days!

Cheers!
