How’s this for a busy afternoon?
Here’s what we did during a 3 hour meeting.
Measure for the window treatments in the Living Room and Dining Room. My great measurer/installer Al came to help out.
Drill into the walls to find the studs so that we can be sure that the hardware does not fall out of the horse hair plaster walls. OK, my installer did this…
Pick a window treatment style for the vestibule.
Discuss issues with the window treatments in the master bedroom.
Pick a new trim for the living room window treatment as the one we liked was supposed to ship on 11/5 but just got pushed a month and we won’t be able to have it in time.
Measure for hard treatments for the 2nd floor. Review chord placement for whole house. Couldn’t measure for the 3rd floor because the floors were being refinished. We’ll do the first floor when the trim is installed, hopefully next week.
Review tile dimensions for the master bathroom.
Consider the refridgerator placement and talk about whether it’s worth it to change it’s location.
Look at the color of the window sashes with the paint colors we picked when we thought we were painting the sashes. Decide that it’s too expensive to paint the sashes, so we should just change the white color for the trim. This means we have to revisit some of the white blinds as now the white of the trim and the white of the blinds clash.
Decide the paint color for the basement.
Review the stain color for the hard wood floor on the 3rd floor and the 2nd floor.
Confirm the paint color for the back stair and railing. Look at them in concert with the stain color for the first floor.
Review lighting placement for the island and for the desk in the kitchen.
Choose outdoor lighting for under the deck. Pick finish and dimension of fixture.
Order window treatments for the living room, dining room and vestibule.
Appreciate the beautiful work of the Feranti Brothers of tiling, and of Phil who milled some really gorgeous trim for the master.
