Well, I got home and there seems to be way more stuff to do than when I left.  I thought I left everything quite tidy, but not so.  That’s another post.

The  great news is that the Sumter Project is almost finished!

Terri is working on the first coat in the Living Room…..

and working around the room…..

Meanwhile, I discover that there is a chip in our Foyer finish!  The light fixture is up, soooooo, I also found the culprit!

This is our beloved Dennis, the electrian…….

                                                                                                                      He looks guilty, doesn’t he!

And here comes Carla, master fix-it-upper.

What is that?  A closet rod, a paint brush taped to the end?

And here it sits until the stone surround is installed.  I know I have teased you a good bit about this finish.  I will give you a hint of what is to come.  Trompe L’oeil stonework, and a custom  Trompe L’oeil tapestry designed in collaboration with designer John Marshall Williams.

That’s it!  That’s all you are going to get for now.  You will have to check back!  I hope you will!

Here Terri completed a air return cover to match the beautiful wood grain of the cabinetry.
