Come on in.....

......and see the improvement! The renovation is complete.

One of things we really wanted was more storage space so this built in wet bar with frig drawers and a wine cooler is perfect in the new dining room and will be nice when the weather warms up and we spend more time on the patio. With the addition of a pantry, I haven't actually filled all the drawers in the kitchen..but I will!

It seems all we do is eat, whether it is with family or friends so the addition of two new eating areas has been wonderful for entertaining. Don't you love the dining room drapes? They are a soft silk plaid of gold, cream, and black.

The sun room off the kitchen has transformed from the dining area to a sitting room with a red leather ottoman and swivel chairs to take in the river view or a kitchen conversation.

The curtains arrived and "my handsome handyman with his assistant" managed to hang them without too many extra holes in the wall.
A (Pottery Barn) natural basket filled with a collection of seashells, and two giant clocks to show London time and Boston time filled in some empty space.
Tucker is a big help and has already claimed his couch!

The whole renovation came together and is perfect! It's now our comfortable, cozy, New England bungalow on the river. And now, with all the snow and ice the "nor-easters" have dumped on the south shore, the next project is to replace the front porch and steps ...... it never ends! But that is another blog!

Love the curtains! I see you followed Rhoda's rule #3 and hung them from the molding!
The candlesticks are perfect for the table. I wonder if they are still there?
