The Little House That Could

The past year has brought both closed doors and opportunity. The closing of my second store a year ago left me a bit lost. What does a girl do when she doesn't have to go to work every day?What do you do with all the creative energy that was used on multiple clients houses daily for the past ten years?

My options were explode or find another creative outlet? So far since January these have been my new outlets.
Writing a blog
Remodeling my "Baby" the Lakehouse
Take a class and then another class and another class. Writing, photography, painting, acting whatever strikes my fancy.

Progress so far....on my personal 1900 sq feet of heaven

                                                 New paint on door

Paint color from inside

Remodeled Kitchen Upper cabinets replaced with wall of windows and open shelving

Remodeled Kitchen with custom designed table

Remodeled kitchen wall with hidden appliance storage
We kept the base drawers and rebuilt new uppers and housing
for the ovens and microwave.

  Breakfast nook turns reading nook..the perfect place for morning coffee

Laundry room- behind curtain #3 the washer and dryer

Laundry update raised existing cabinets to laundry counter height, upper cabinets go to the ceiling new sink, paint,hardware and counters. Took this room from plastic sink garage style to stylish laundry, second prep area for parties and even a bar if needed.
