For months they had been wanting to start a redo in their hearth room that joins the kitchen. The project got started in January with a trip to Nell Hill's in Kansas City where Mary Carol Garrity (owner of Hell Hill's) drew a room plan from measurements and pictures of the room.
The chairs and fabric were selected and ordered from Nell Hills.
The beautiful flowers were a gift from friends while my daughter has been re-cooperating. They won't be sitting there long with two young boys running around. The burlap tray and accessories are also from Nell Hills.
The original drawing by Mary Carroll has built in bookcases but my daughter hasn't had time to address those.
The drapery fabric is an animal toile.
Wallpaper had to be stripped and you can see it was tough going because a cute little helper thought his Mom and Dad needed assistance. So, much of the paper removal had to be done when both boys were in bed.
I know this sounds strange but before the walls were sanded or painted, my son-in-law hung the drapery rods. This was done in order to get the perfect measurement for the length of the draperies to the floor so the fabric could be ordered.
They couldn't find the rods they wanted in silver so he purchased black ones and spray painted them silver. The Christmas tree and decor did come down before the sanding and painting began.
The project has been completed for a little while but I haven't had time to take pictures to show. They have been working on a wall of pictures so a new post will be coming to show the rest of the room.
