I can't stand it....YOU JUST HAVE TO LOOK!!!

I just have to share with you what's up at the farmhouse!!!
Our living room is now FINISHED!!!
Please disregard the lovely knotted drapes :)
PLUS, the studio in on it's way to being finished as well....
I'm a tired ol' painting gal ~







My trusty helper Chase....our fourth born ~
on his way home from college today he came straight to the new house
knowing I was busy painting, changed clothes and said,
"What do you want me to do mom?"
God love him....








This house is already feeling like home....

Happy weekend dear friends,
hugs and love,
Dawn

Nice work. Painting is so hard (yet I never seem to remember how hard until I start painting another room!).

But what I'm most impressed with......That's you SON? You don't look old enough for your fourth born to be that grown up. Send some of that magic potion my way!

Mary Ellen said...

Sounds like you are blessed with wonderful boys too! Love the paint you picked out - I can tell it is going to be just such a neat home!

It looks fabulous, sweet Dawn! I love the combination of the wonderful hardwood floors with the eggshell color on the walls and the white windows and moldings. I can imagine that you're really tired after you had done so much painting during the last days. Your son is such a sweetie to help you.
Have a great weekend!
Hugs to you,
Julia

I am loving helping you paint:) OK, watching you paint and OMG what a handsome helper you have! It is really feeling like home to me too!

Have a blessed day, HUGS!

Deb said...

It's so much fun to watch your dream unfold. It's like turning the pages of a book. The fact that your son is there helping you because he WANTS to makes it even more special!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Sally L. Smith said...

What a beautiful "you" color and such a handsome young man. You know that not every son is like yours; you are so blessed. Good going on every count.

Brenda said...

I am with you, painting is only fun the first day or two then it kinda goes downhill. But then when it is all finished you can stand back and smile. I love the color you have chose. And I know how hard it is to paint paneled walls. Been there done that. So glad your son is pitching in!

Zita - Mlle Magpie said...

Dawn, your son is not only handsome but a sweetheart as well. Isn't it nice to have a helper with such a big job? It's all looking so wonderful, Dawn.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

It looks wonderful, Dawn! What a sweetie your son is, too! : )

Vee said...

Chase is a sweetheart. Just when you needed him most... It's going to be so beautiful when everything is in place. Before you said to disregard the curtains, I was thinking that it was a bit different for you and wondering how you'd pull that off...guess that you're planning to pull them off. :D

Brenda E. said...

Oh Dawn it is sooooo beautiful. What a difference a little hard work and paint make. It is all coming together so nice. And thank God for sons eh? What a darling boy and so handsome. You have moved right along in a short time and it's just going to be a dream home when you are done. Can't wait to see more. Have a wonderful weekend.

Dragonlady said...

My goodness, you are going to need a vacation by the time you get all moved in.....lol...everything is lookig so beautiful and love that you are blessed with such great boys....I just love the pic where the sunlight is coming in and shadowed the window and curtains on the wall.....and of course I will be followering along to see the progress, thanks for sharing with all of us...have a great weekend, try to rest a bit....lol...
hugs

Jo said...

Painting is so much work but the end results is so wonderful, it's like a fresh start. The farmhouse is really coming together. Can't wait to see it when you are finished. What a wonderful son you have to just come in and start helping, not a lot of guys would do that. Hope you and your family have a blessed weekend.
