20March17 – Steve has spent the last 6 days (5 of them with a nasty cold)
- Making the master window seat bookcases only to re-do them so they are centered on the wall. The original Maple Forest Cottage has them set over to the window side and we thought we could live with that. Until we realized we couldn’t – too off center for us.
- Helping install, prime, paint, etc the master window seat. Now to find new fabric for the cushion (what I bought 2 years ago doesn’t cut it) and try to have that done by our wedding in May. Larry delivered it and the foyer settee base last Tuesday. That was so exciting – we’ve been waiting literally, years, for these two pieces! Steve will “now” finish the settee with it’s curved maple & cherry top and lacquer the wood.
My Gingerbread house is D-O-N-E for this year. OMG, 4 months of my life constructing this little replica (almost) of our Maple Forest Cottage. It’s time to move on to other things! I am pleased with how it came out, however, and enjoyed bringing it to life. I’ll store it in the mud room up on top of the red storage cabinet I got last month.
One by one we’re dealing with the final things on our punch list…..
