Update on More Winter Projects

Picture

   Busy busy Bees we have been this winter. We should’ve been resting up for our busy season but we had so many ideas and improvements that we wanted to make. Our list is getting shorter so I thought I would post a few updates for your anticipated pleasure!
    First up is one of our favorite projects – our funky new lighting in the Buffet Room. These are actually old vintage Olive buckets…yep, Olive Buckets.  We have DIY’d them into hanging lights.  It  gives off a great ambiance to the room – don’t you think?  They are so cool we are trying to figure out how and where to put these also in our houses.

    Next up we thought there was a need for an additional restroom.  This one is labeled “Family” so that it can serve many purposes. It is an additional restroom for the guys.  It also has a handicapped accessible toilet – raised to the proper level – plus it has bars on either side for better handicapped access.  We also installed a changing station for our mothers with infant children.  We often found them changing diapers on our vintage couch and thought we might want to find an alternative to that!  We have fun as usual decorating it “in theme”…with a few final touches coming later.  This also meant that we had to move the sink into the lounge across from the vintage sofa.  This actually helps so that as your guests enter the lounge – they can see  their choices much clearer now.

   And…final for now but not my complete list, is a funky old light hung over the Tack Room (Lounge) Door entrance. This old light has been around from the time it hung over an old Well-House by the Farmhouse back in the mid-70’s. We got rid of the Well-House and packed away the light for some future use.  We have pondered its potential use in several locations over the years but now we have found a great home for it at the barn.
  So – till later when we get a few more completed, I will post another update.
