Since I am new to blogworld, I am still trying to learn how to post pictures and such. I am very thankful to Rhoda from Southern Hospitality for showing me how to use Windows Live Writer to make blogging more fun and easy.
I decided to post some pictures of our future Guest House as a way to practice using the new Windows Live features.
The only picture I had was one I took when the ice storm hit us this past February. Brrrrrr! The red door leads to the guest house.
These are the steps leading upstairs. My husband used New England pine for the steps and added beadboard underneath for a cottage feel. We haven’t put a door up yet because we are looking for an antique door with maybe a stained glass window in it.
We are putting a dark stain on the steps. It’s called Provincial.
At the top of the stairs is a beautiful black banister that my husband and his father made.
In the left corner of this room is where the kitchen will be. The sink will be under the window (below), and the stove will be on the wall to the right. My husband is making me some custom cabinets and they look awesome. I’ll show them in a future post.
The area in the picture below is where my two Goodwill chairs (in my earlier post) will go, along with a tv. There’s not a lot of room, so I will have to be creative!
The next few pictures are of the bedroom. It has plenty of room, and the new carpet feels wonderful! (Try to look over the kitchen cabinets in the pictures. They are left over from our kitchen renovation, and my husband is going to reuse them.)
My husband installed the tile, sink, shower, toilet, and anything else in the bathroom. I’m not sure why the vanity looks so dirty in this picture. It really isn’t. :)
This is the view as you leave the bedroom. For some reason, I didn’t take a picture of the closet/laundry room. It’s on the same wall as the bathroom, and it is super roomy!
Well, that’s the beginning. We still have a long way to go, but I will keep you updated. Just for fun I added a picture of my “buttercups”. They are my favorite flower.Thank you, Rhoda! I love the Windows Live Writer! This post took me no time at all. You are right, I’ll never go back!
