In the last post I edited and put in the rest of the color names. I realized that I didn't really talk much about the wood and cabinets.
So here's what's what there. We are using the old interior doors, except for the basement door, as it had too much moisture damage. We are getting salvaged doors and having a couple closet doors made where we don't have anything that will work. All wood will be oil stained to a deep reddish brown, as in many older homes here. It will match what we started with. The windows will have sills that I can put a candle or a plant on. Of course that may mean that the cat wants to try it out... But I like window sills - the kind we used to have, not that 1 inch slat that most houses have now.
The upper corners of the window frame will have the old fashioned bullseye corners, is my thought so far. But after looking at them in my parents' old house, it appears that the woodwork wasn't just flat board. It has a grooved surface. So now what? Regardless, this is the color of my woodwork in the house. Not sure if I will paint the kitchen woodwork to go with the cabinets or the bathroom woodwork white to match fixtures, but I don't think so.
I want a door like this one to go between the den and the living room. Our contractor said he has a few vintage doors to choose from. We'll have sheer curtains on the inside or some way of blocking the window in case we have any guests who need to sleep in there.
We are going to be able to get up there for a summer stay I think! I can see the lobsters in the pot already. We have an RV hookup beside the house, so visitors are welcome! Well, we have to know you, of course! Otherwise there will definitely be a fee involved! This might be our retirement income...a single RV campground.
Today though, there is new snow on the ground. So put away those summer dreams for now. I have to shovel me a path...
