{Post 1,331} This Much Closer

I've been out of the house MOST of the day between an eye appointment for my youngest son, then lunch out (thanks for the free sandwiches, Chick-fil-A), then picking out new frames for my son, then to Good News Club with Rachel (love seeing "my kids"), then several trips to the karate dojo.

Above are two more pictures of the soon-to-be finished product. 

I tried taking an aerial view of the mantle and hearth by standing on a ladder in the middle of the room.  The fireplace has a package of large indoor flood lamps and a huge putty knife in it...just to add ambiance!  At least I rolled the BRUTE trash can out of the way for the picture.  Soon I'll be spray painting the former fireplace screen black.  I think it will make it look even bettter!

Nearly all the baseboard and closet trim are up.  They look marvelous.  Plain, bright white.  Lovely.

Hi, I am so happy to have found your blog. My husband and I are DIYers and we just made a bid on an old 1905 bungalow . . . hopefully our new home :) We have lived in the same house for over thirty years, so this is a huge step for us. The house needs a large amount of TLC and your posts are super. Lots of ideas and tips. I am your newest follower and I hope that you will follow me back ( I'm also a quilter).
Have a wonderful week.
Happy to meet you,
Connie :)
