One might think by my last few posts that I am taking a break from my blog break, but that person would be as wrong as a whole roasted pig at a summer company picnic. I’m actually taking a break from Europe photos to show you some fantabulous new details at the loft. And then I’ll get back to my blog break of showing you Europe from a TPH point of view. The first pic is a toofer–you get the mirror and the reflection of the other lovely.
How awesome is that frame around the old bar mirror? Bravo, Chris! It is just what I wanted. It is primed and ready for me to pick out a color. I’m leaving the original frame finish and will match that gray for the trim details. I freakin’ love the scale of it!
And the track door to the bedroom…perfect! Just what I wanted, too!
Ebony stained oak–we saved money on the oak by using oak plywood instead of solid stock, and it looks just as good! The divider walls are covered in pine 1x6s, which Chris ran over with a metal brush to accentuate the graining by scraping the softer wood.
The oak continues in the bedroom for the closet surround and the built-in bed. It’s my little masculine concession for all the girliness. The air vents have their first coat of pink!
My California friend Cheryl had an unexpected layover in Atlanta last week so we hooked up for some Ria’s Bluebird, Lotta Frutta, and a little loft tour. She told Chris it was just like me to have a giant mirror. We’ve been friends since we were 12…so I guess that means she kinda knows me. Darn. Oh well, this pic’s for you, Cheryl!
We go way back…
I love you, Cheryl, more than my new chevron door. ‘Cause my new chevron door’s got nothing on that blonde ‘fro. Bali, next?
Now back to my break from my break from my blog break…I’m so confused.
