Foodie Friday and Everything Else

 Welcome to the Foodie Friday and Everything Else Party. This week, we visited more stone yards, and Bandy found two Arabscato Vagli slabs that had been tucked away in the back of the warehouse.

The Marble Madness is Over

We returned to the stone yard to look at the Arabescato Vagli slabs that Bandwidth had found the other day. This marble had been tucked away in the back of the warehouse, half-hidden by other slabs.

Journey of a Cabinet Door

 My kitchen cabinet door has been quite busy. It spent the day traipsing around middle Tennessee stone yards, looking for a marble slab that was at least 125" long--in other words, Mission Impossible.

Renovation Diary: Hardware, Cabinets, and Tile

 Since my counter-tops haven't been chosen, I shouldn't even think about cabinet hardware. But I found a box of polished nickel knobs and pulls that I didn't use on another project. Medana and I tested a few. I just love to get ahead of myself.

Black-Painted Interior Doors

For several years, I've wanted to paint my interior doors black, but I couldn't commit. At one house, I painted a closet door and thought about it for weeks. The deep charcoal color was striking, but in the end, I couldn't go through with it.

Renovation Diary

 Sometimes we need a different viewpoint, a new way of seeing the world--up close and far away.  A year ago, a 70s ranchburger wasn't a part of my world. If you'd told me that I would end up on this hilltop, I wouldn't have believed it. At my age, I had no desire to embark upon another renovation, especially one that appeared to be Mission Impossible. Then, without warning, I was pushed up that hill.
