A lot has happened in the last several weeks. I think that most of us know what the company FLOR does. If you don’t know, they make amazing modular carpet tiles that come in a range of colors and textures. FLOR was running a room makeover contest on their facebook page and my wife decided to enter our house. We really needed some rugs to help define our open floor plan. I really didn’t think much of it but my wife worked really hard to get all of her friends to vote for our room. Long story short we won! The design processes was really fun and the people at FLOR were amazing to work with. CLICK HERE TO READ THE POST ON FLOR’S BLOG. I don’t know why but there are some really mean comments on the post, not really about our house but directed at FLOR.

I finally finished my left gate on the fence. I used a standard pre-made gate and made a simple frame out of the same ripped cedar boards, then ran the boards horizontal. The application is pretty common for me but our neighbors were pretty thrilled with it. The other day one my neighbors said “I think you have the best looking fence in the neighborhood”. Funny how one thing may be common place to me be to others it is a whole other way of thinking.

A while back I scored a great deal on this pair of Eames chairs with aluminum bases. I am currently in the processes of polishing the bases to a mirror finish. I then plan to powder coat the bases with a clear so that they will stay super shiny. At the end of the project I will do a DIY on it.

    Congrats on your win! That is really fantastic. You’ve done such a good job making your home special among a sea of the same. As a designer, I’ve really enjoyed seeing the progress and outcome of your hard work.

    Thanks Ann Marie, once we get our rugs in place our photographer friend is going to shoot the place and I will do a final tour of the house. And share what I have learned during this process.
