Lucy inspects the progress

Still waiting for something dramatic at the house. Chippendale railings. Kitchen cabinets. Garage Door. We are dying to see something flashy happen. But I guess we need to be patient. The painters have begun their work and there are places where one can really see the beauty of the project starting to peek through the mess and chaos. Of course a good paint job is no small deal with all the prep work and such. So patience. Our master vanity was delivered this week. That was quite exciting to see.

And of course it was time Lucy had the opportunity to inspect the progress. If she doesn't approve I don't know what we will do.

Although they are still in the early stages of painting the casing is really starting to look beautiful. Picture is taken from the Family Room looking toward front door.

Lucy advises that you make sure you take care when using solvents,

I can't even begin to tell you how exciting this vanity is. In our previous "master" bath, John and I had to share a single pedestal sink and a narrow, plastic Container Store drawer thingy on wheels. I've already started to plan what goes where.
Vanity color is Farrow & Ball's Shaded White. It looks whiter then it is when it isn't up against a whiter white.

You'll be hearing a lot more about Ivan C. Dutterer as the weeks go by. Look at those dovetail joints.

I think she approves


  1. Everything is wonderful, especially LUCY!

    1. John says Lucy is the best part of the project. Although I know he is being silly since we sure didn't have to spend this much money to make her happy.

    1. I knew we were getting quality cabinets, but I didn't really anticipate such beautiful joints.

  3. So exciting to see it all together. I imagine Lucy was just excited to go home after months in the apartment.

  4. This will be a fabulous house when completed, but Lucy wants to know what special parts are for her (other than just her Dad's are happy, which is a top priority for her, of course).
