You know what I really love...that you weren't afraid to paint the molding white! I am huge fan of chunky white moldings.

Gorgeous! I love that the house looks totally transformed without any major renovation so far. Very impressive!

Love that geometric mirror in your foyer. I think the Trellis pillows/cushions I am giving away (http://michellelalala.blogspot.com/2012/01/giveaway-pair-of-trellis-ikat-pillow.html) would look lovely in that space. :-) And that Troy Sausalito light in your dining room is an all-time classic!

I'm with Melissa - I totally freaked about your kitchen!!!!! Tricky!

Carol@TheDesignPages said...

Wow, how impressive. The entire house looks a trillion times more beautiful than before. Way to go!!

Danielle said...

So great! Really love how painting out the trim makes the little stained glass windows pop - you couldn't even tell they were there! Can't wait to see more as it comes together. Happy weekend!

Kelly @ View Along the Way said...

That mirror in your entry way, WOW! Huge transformations already. Great job!

Anna of IHOD said...

The boiler transformation is quite impressive. I like how the Mr. inscribed the year it was removed

My Interior Life said...

It all looks great, and yes, that kitchen had my jaw dropping then giggling. Your glass blocks solution is very clever and pretty at the same time - now that's making the most out of what you have! Great job!

Janet @ House Four said...

Great transformations! I can't wait to see your kitchen!
Your hous brings back great memories for me - it's identical to the one my dad grew up in, in Toronto. I used to love sitting on that porch with my granndma in the evenings. Love your house!
