Back to the progress in week 54. While we haven’t worked much since vacation, there are a few things I haven’t shared yet.
The biggest change – our new kitchen tile.
(We’re planning to install open shelving in between the windows.)
Ryan finished installing the backsplash and grouting the tile. I really like it. It’s just a classic white subway tile with a simple edger.
Ryan wasn’t thrilled with the grey grout because the installation has to be perfect and the it was difficult to get all the grout removed from the tile. But, I really like the contrast with the white tile so I think it was worth the effort. (Easy for me to say.)
Thanks to your suggestions (specifically from Sara and Emily), I moved the furniture around in the living room and I like it much better. I love getting your design help! It’s one of the best parts of blogging, I think.
I moved the large chairs under the window and I think it opens up the room a lot.
It’s a seriously huge room. I know some of you (I’m talking to you, Anonymous) didn’t like the large scale of the furniture, but it’s so comfortable and the room is so big that anything smaller would be lost. So, I’m happy with it at this point.
And I love having a coffee table. It’s something I’ve really missed in our current living room.
So that’s the week in review. Not much, I know. But that’s life.
