Yesterday we went to Lethbridge (45 minutes drive) to pick up our underlayment for the carpet downstairs. We have been working on the trim which has taken awhile because we (Mark and Chris,lou's husband) have been making it from scratch so to speak. We are using 3/4 inch MDF and then using a bit to make our own personal edging. We love it, but it is messy and time consuming. We have all the trim painted, using a sprayer and so we are now ready for carpet. It will make such a difference and when the in floor heating comes on we will feel cozier.
While Mark was at the carpet place Neal and I went across the street to look at furniture because we still need living room, formal dining room and basement furniture for the great room.
I found it! The living room furniture! We love it!
I really thought I wanted leather and was willing to hold out until Mark agreed with me. But when I saw this, I knew this was it. The wood carving on all of the pieces have a tropical flare which is subtle to most, but not to us. It is comfortable and fits and looks perfect.
Our front door has been in for awhile and literally downstairs unstained for a year, no lie! It is mahogany with a deep brown/red stain. Alot like our front door in CA. We love all of the glass and light that comes through. It is not trimmed out yet, but soon.
So there you have it Clark, Brad, Laurel and Lou Lou. Home Sweet Home!!!!
