BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY HOME WHERE I'VE BEEN PAINTING SPECIAL DISTRESSED FINISHES ON ALL OF THE CABINETS

BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY HOME WHERE I'VE BEEN PAINTING SPECIAL DISTRESSED FINISHES ON ALL OF THE CABINETS

Finally, I have organized enough pictures that I can show you the wonderful house where I've been working.
From the open kitchen, you look into this huge room   I'm not sure if they call it a living room or a great room.  Up on the right, is the open hallway leading to bedrooms.  I'm pretty sure the railings will be wrought iron.  It's open on both sides and it was open (no railing) while I was going back and forth working on the bath cabinets in each bedroom.  It was a little scary walking on that narrow, open breezeway.
This is the other end of the great room.  The open kitchen.
I love the way they made the cabinets different heights.  
Looking from the kitchen, this is the dining room.  And, that is the ceiling medallion that I painted and shared with you, earlier.
The kitchen with the brown primer.
I painted a white distressed finish over this color.
I believe they left the ceiling the natural wood color.  Not sure if they even sealed it.
This flooring is "to die for"!!
It has gray brown tones and each board is 9" wide.  It truly looks like old barn wood.
Doors.

This house is around 6,000 sq. ft. of beautiful.
Those garage doors are stained wood.
Several times, I tried to get good pictures of the copper on top of the house.
Real copper is covering the top of the chimney stack at the very top of the house.
And, there are two of those little dormer windows on either side of the very high entry.  There is a 4" or 6" strip of copper around the top of the little dormers.  The copper will patina with age.
Next post, I'll show you more of the cabinets I painted.
Isn't this a beautiful home!!

    1. Thank you, Liz! I loved seeing the deer, too. I think I'm working there again in June and hoping to see all the newly born fawns.
