Done In The Dining Room...Finally

Oh, this room took so very long..I am glad it's done!!!! The window trim in the bay was near impossible to attach and I'm not all that happy with the job. I hope draperies will cover what makes me mad. I had to use a mirror to get the trim in and that can be so confusing. Left is right and right was tough. I will be putting either a cushion there to sit on or using it for plants.
The back door is not glued in yet. There's work to be done on the exterior around there, plus I want to put in a stained glass instead of just plain glass. The fireplace is one that came with the kit with a few additions to it.
After all the time spent in here, I'm at a loss of words to say now. Just tired, I guess. I should have more to say, but am ending this here for today.
Next, the hallway on the second floor, but it'll be a few days before I pick up where I left off. I have other things to do and, honestly, just need to get out of the house for a while. I'll go back in on the weekend.

Thank you, my dearie....I love the Houseworks look so much better. I wish I could have afforded the windows too, but.....the trim was a toughie, especially in the bay, and I'm not as happy, but it's good for it to be done.

Now, up the stairs and finish that hallway...after a short breather.

I love the floor especially.

I'm so proud of those floors, Judy, and I learned a lot from Larry Marshall while working on them. They are a thin mahogony veneer with Cabernet stain and a 50/50 mixture of Bullseye shellac and denatured alcohol. The decorative parts are scrapbook trims.It's even more beautiful in real life. I appreciate your comment so very much. Thank you.
